The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Sorsogon 2nd District Engineering Office (DEO) has completed the P20 million worth of 1,119 meters paved road in Barcelona town in Sorsogon province.


District Engineer Felix Dimaano Jr., said the road will serve as the link of the barangays to the town proper where goods and agricultural products are being sold.


“It will also provide better access for people wanting to visit the historically rich and scenic attractions of Barcelona and Bulusan, thereby strengthening the local tourism industry,” Dimaano said.
