The Zamboanga del Norte provincial government has received allocation from the national government for the construction of 600 kilometers of  farm-to-market roads.

Gov. Roberto Y. Uy disclosed las week that the 600 kilometers of  farm to market roads will be constructed in the different municipalities.

Uy said if completed, the 600 kilometers of farm to market roads will benefit the farmers and will ensure food security.

“Concrete road is very important to people most especially to our farmers. Maayo man giyod nga semento ang dalan kay ang mga farmers dili maglisod pagtravel og pagdala sa ila nga mga produkto sa market og dili mabun-og ila produkto. Kay pag bun-og ila produkto pag-abot sa market. Barato na lang kini og lugi sila sa ilang kahago,” Uy explained.

He added that the national road concreting from Dipolog City to Pagadian City is near completion.

It is now very easy to travel  from Dipolog City to Pagadian City. Travel time will only be about two hours. In fact there is a daily  regular Rural Bus servicing the Dipolog City-Pagadian City route.

Police Regional Office -9 Deputy Regional Director for Administration Chief Supt. Ramon M. Ochotorena told Uy during his exit courtesy call on the governor that the bridge connecting the municipality of Dumingag in Zamboanga del Sur to the municipality of Siayan, Zamboanga del Norte, is now for completion, according to Dumingag Mayor Nanciancino M. Pacaliuga Jr. during their meeting recently.

Ochotorena informed Uy that the concrete road is very important for the government forces to enforce the  law  because they can move fast  and travel easily when bad incidents arise in the area. — Allen Abastillas
