Kalinga gets P173.5M for road improvement

CITY OF TABUK, Kalinga, June 15 (PIA) - -  Kalinga province  is allocated P173.5 million this year for road improvement  under the Conditional Matching Grant for Provinces (CMGP)  formerly called KALSADA program.


The Provincial Planning and Development Office (PPDO) reported that P99.5M was appropriated for the upgrading and improvement of the 8.25-kilometer Cabaruan-Socbot provincial road which was  bided out last  May 10.

Engr. Cynthia Imperial of the PPDO said the road will enhance travel and   transport of    goods from the northern part of this city and a barangay of Pinukpuk to the market, and will connect to a planned circumferential road towards Rizal.

Another project is the upgrading and improvement of the 6.80-kilometer Cabaritan-Dugpa provincial road. Said project amounting to P74M was likewise  bided out  already.

Imperial said Kalinga received last year P75M under  the KALSADA program for the upgrading of the 5.85-km Bulanao-Laya-Balong (Burayucan Section) provincial road which was completed  April this year. This is a boost to the agricultural production of barangays along said route.

For 2018, the province has  proposed P536M for the upgrading of five provincial roads. Peter A. Balocnit(JDP/PAB-PIA CAR, Kalinga)
