Friday, March 6, 2020

Residents and commuters in the town of Parang in Maguindanao will soon experience ease and convenience in travelling as the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) fast-tracks the widening of a two-kilometer road in Barangay Nituan.

The road widening project from the existing two (2) lanes to four (4) lanes is expected to be completed by April 2020.

Citing a report from District Engineer Lugaya A. Ampatuan of DPWH Cotabato City District Engineering Office (DEO), DPWH Region 12 Director Basir M. Ibrahim said that the road is seen to reduce transportation cost for farmers in delivering their products to market centers while also promoting peace and order in the area.

The project is funded under DPWH FY 2019 Regular Infrastructure Program amounting to P74.8 million.
