By Connie Calipay


LEGAZPI CITY --- Thousands of villagers in the towns of Guinobatan, Oas, Polangui, and the City of Ligao, all in Albay province, are set to benefit from PHP866 million worth of infrastructure projects set to start construction this April.


Albay 3rd District Rep. Fernando Cabredo on Monday thanked and commended President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. for prioritizing the implementation of the projects along the Maharlika Highway road sections that will provide convenience to the public in going to and from various destinations, not only within the province and region but also in Visayas and Mindanao.


In a phone interview, Cabredo said the PHP866 million would fund a total of 15 projects that were included in the Department of Public Works and Highways’ (DPWH) annual infrastructure program and funded under the General Appropriations Act of 2024.


“I am grateful for the continued support of President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos, House Speaker Martin Romualdez, and DPWH Secretary Manny Bonoan. The President cares for the people of Bicol,” Cabredo said in the local dialect.


“Naka-focus sa Maharlika Highway ang projects, 15 projects ito na may rehabilitation, reconstruction, upgrading of damaged paved roads, road widening, preventive maintenance, off-carriageway, and intersection improvements. Madami siyang gagawin and nakikita natin na pag natapos ito mas madali at maayos na ang daan patungo at papuntang Luzon, Visayas at Mindanao (The projects are focused on the Maharlika Highway, these are 15 projects with rehabilitation, reconstruction, upgrading of damaged paved roads, road widening, preventive maintenance, off-carriageway and intersection improvements. There is a lot to be done and we can see that when these are finished, going to and from Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao would be much easier),” he added. (PNA)
