Local farmers and residents from various barangays in Don Salvador Benedicto town in Negros Occidental can now spend less on transportation costs of farm products and minimize income losses with the construction of a P15-million paved access road.

The access road, located at Pasto Liso, Barangay Bagong Silang, along Spur-16 Road in Don Salvador Benedicto town, was undertaken by the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH), Negros Occidental Sub-District Engineering Office.

DPWH 6 Regional Director Nerie Bueno said the project, funded under the District’s FY 2022 General Appropriations Act (GAA), involves concreting of 800-lineal meter long, 5-meter wide concrete pavement and grouted riprap.

“This service road will connect areas to farm roads and provide enhanced mobility and accessibility to residents and farmers. This will likewise seek to increase local trade and productivity, reduce transportation costs of farm products, and minimize income losses of farmers due to challenges in transportation,” Bueno said.

Meantime, District Engineer Oscar Dela Cruz said the newly paved road allows for better access to basic services such as health centers, schools, markets, and other facilities located in Don Salvador Benedicto.

“The construction of the road will hasten mobility from distant areas to Brgy. Bagong Silang that will improve connectivity from farm-to-market necessary for the food security of the place,” Dela Cruz also said.*
