The Daang Maharlika widening project in Pamplona, Camarines Sur has recently been completed, and motorists and residents in the area have started to enjoy the improved traffic flow along the area, the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) claimed.
According to DPWH Secretary Mark Villar, the 1.2 kilometer project, which expands the road from two lanes to four, covers the portion of national highway at Barangay San Gabriel, Pamplona. This also includes paving of shoulder, drainage construction, and slope protection works.
Villar also said that the project, with a total cost of P24.2-million funded under the 2020 General Appropriations Act (GAA), is eyed to provide better mobility that will directly benefit people near the project area.
“Despite the pandemic, we continue to undertake more road improvement projects to stimulate economic activities nationwide,” the public works secretary was quoted as saying.
But this is not the only project of the department that was newly completed.
Lately, DPWH announced also the completion of the farm-to-market road in Minalabac, Camarines Sur, that was finished in December 2020 after improvement works started in July the same year.
