The Improvement of Bado Dangwa-Guilayon Farm to Market Road in Tabuk City, Kalinga topped the nationwide physical progress ranking achieving a positive slippage of 26%. Said road project in Kalinga is one with the highest cost of approved sub-projects under the I-BUILD component of the Department of Agriculture – Philippine Rural Development Project (DA-PRDP).
Said project is jointly constructed by the Omengan Construction and Development Corporation & Royal Sea Bees Construction.
Kalinga Provincial Agriculturist Engineer Domingo Bakilan said these benefits and privileges given to the province were the result for being the most efficient and compliant provincial LGU in the project implementation of PRDP.
In their on-line publication dated September 24, 2020, DA-PRDP announced that aside from said FMR, three other on-going I-BUILD subprojects in North Luzon cluster also recorded the highest positive variance among all SPs under the DA-PRDP as of August 2020.
These include the Rehabilitation of Baluarte-Sinili FMR – the first FMR implemented by Santiago City in Isabela that ranked second achieving 23% of the above current target; third is the Rehabilitation of Parasapas FMR and Parasapas Bridge in the province of La Union with 21% accomplishment; and the Construction of Cold Storage in Palayan City, Nueva Ecija which has also recorded progress ahead of target, ranking fourth nationwide with 18% variance. It tied with Negros Occidental.
It states in said publication that ‘This indicates that the subprojects’ actual accomplishments are ahead of the targeted construction schedule based on the uploaded Program of Works in the Project’s Management Information System (MIS) portal’.
The 10.4-kilometer P230-M Farm-to-Market Road (FMR) subproject covers four barangays in the city of Tabuk hoping to usher development in the western part of the city. This will benefit around 1,015 households with 5,906 population residing in barangay Bado Dangwa, Guilayon, Nambucayan and Magnao.
According to Engr. Bakilan the project was funded through the World Bank, the Government of the Philippines with counterpart from the City Government of Tabuk during the administration of then mayor and now Governor Ferdinand Tubban.
