Samar First District Engineering Office of Department of Public Works and Highways has finally completed the construction of San Agustin-Pagsanghan Road under the General Appropriation Act (GAA) of 2016.
The project includes the concreting of 3 150 linear meters of road covering Brgy. San Agustin to Pagsanghan, Samar.
With a contract amount of P50 Million, the construction of San Agustin-Pagsanghan Road is one of the high impact projects of Samar I.
The Municipality of Pagsanghan can be reached by a river boat or an intermittent concrete road where gravel road are hardly passable at times during continuous heavy rains. With the completion of this project, residents can travel from the municipality to Gandara and elsewhere anytime conveniently.
