Infra projects toward rural development

31 Jan

The Provincial Government of Cagayan continues to implement its projects on infrastructure development through the construction and rehabilitation of farm to market roads (FMR) and Small Water Impounding Projects (SWIP) in the different municipalities in the province.
At present, these projects were extended to municipalities of Alcala with the construction of Pared to Fabian farm to market road, Dublon FMR, Damurog to Gabut FMR, Maraburab to Centro FMR, concreting of Sitio Fulay to Pared FMR; Barangay Mocag FMR in Baggao, concreting of Barangay Naddungan and Baraoidan FMR in Gattaran; repair/rehabilitation of San Vicente to Lutique FMR in Gonzaga; and opening of Parada to San Antonio FMR in Sta. Ana.
Rehabilitation and construction of these roads improved road network that will directly benefit farmers and expected to increase agricultural income as the cost of transport reduces.
Meanwhile, construction of Small Water Impounding Projects (SWIP) in the province is ongoing. Among these are the construction of 30 meter width and 206 meter long spillway of Guising SWIP in Gattaran that will serve as the largest spillway in all the SWIP constructed in the Province; the construction of Duyun Lake Diversion dam canal in Rizal that is solely funded by the Provincial Government with a total amount bid of P3 million; and the rehabilitation, construction of flume and canal of Mabitbitnong SWIP in Sto. Niňo.
The Small Water Impounding Project is a counterparting scheme project between the Provincial Government of Cagayan and the Department of Agriculture Region 02. To date, there are 16 existing and operational SWIPs.
The Provincial Government of Cagayan is dedicated to implement projects that will help reduce rural poverty by increasing agricultural productivity and profitability through infrastructure development.  VBRamos
