Licuan-Baay to finish FMR



icuan-Baay, Abra - Engr. Reynaldo Ancheta from the Provincial Engineering Office of the Province of Abra conducted a monitoring of the construction of the Singit-Poblacion-Caoayan-Bakiro Farm-to-Market Road here last September 6, 2013.



With the presence of the Municipal Planning and Development Coordinator Joel Sannadan, the Municipal Engineer Nerio Quinto, and the members of the Project Monitoring and Evaluation Team (PMET), the monitoring activities included extensive evaluation of the construction work done.


"Eighty seven percent of the Singit-Poblacion-Bakiro Farm-to-Market Road has already been finished," claimed Engr. Reynaldo Ancheta.


On-going activities include the construction of a stone-lined ditch, stone masonry, concreting and graveling, and installation of box culverts.


Although some portions of the newly constructed farm-to-market road had been damaged during the storm Odette, the damaged portions are already undergoing repairs.


"This is a dream come true," said one of the beneficiaries of the project.


Identified as one of the priority project in the Participatory Investment Plan (PPIP), the farm to market road is about 11.2 kilometers long and has a funding worth 29 million pesos. The construction began last march of this year.


The farm-to-market road will serve as a main access of local traders whose products would include ginger, squash, coffee, mangoes and taro.//DOLORES F. AL-LAO
