Gov’t allots P429.5M for Siargao Island road projects in 2012

Thursday, December 24, 2011 - The Philippine government is allocating P429.5 million for the road improvement projects in Siargao Island, Surigao del Norte to be undertaken by the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) in 2012.

DPWH-Siargao District Engr. Salvador E. Montil, Jr. said the projects under the 2012 DPWH Infrastracture Program include the concreting of roads along Dapa-General Luna road, Junction Del Carmen-Sta. Monica-San Isidro road, Junction Cancohoy-Pilar road, Junction OsmeΓ±a-Pilar road, Socorro-Nueva Estrella-Pamosaingan road and Dapa-Union-General Luna road.

“These projects are part of the government’s plan to completely pave the Siargao circumferential road especially roads that are declared as tourism roads,” said Montil.

“The improvement of the road network will surely boost the tourism development in the island,” Montil added.

Out of the P429.5 million allocation, P117.4 million will fund the concreting of Dapa-Union-General Luna road which leads to prime beaches and resorts in the island.

The projects are made possible through the efforts of Surigao del Norte 1st District Rep. Francisco T. Matugas to provide necessary infrastructure facilities in order to spur economic activities in the surfing and game fishing capital of the country. (DPWH Siargao District/PIA-Surigao del Norte)

  1. the government should prioritize on building bigger airport runaway to the recently world recognized tourist desitnations here in the philippines and that is boracay and siargao!!!!! in order to accomodate the influx of million of tourist in these two great places, kahit walang terminal basta mauna muna yung expansion ng longer runway, then yung radar then yung night light guide for landing, the terminal will follow or can be build by private investors or filipino corporations like jgsummit, sm investments, san miguel, and others........

  2. It's good news that the Siargao Island road will concrete soon. Sana, unahin muna nila na matapos ang project na matibay at hindi ang pocket ng mga politicians ang dumami. Hoy!!!!!!!!!!!! Gising mga politicians!!!!!!!!!!!! Gumawa naman kayo ng mabuti para kung patay na kayo marami pa rin maka-alala sa inyo at sa buong pamilya ninyo. Huwag kayong gumaya tulad ni Gorya Arroyo at ngayon nasa kulongan na. Pati mga pamilya nya sira na. Matakot naman kayo sa Panginoon.
