Construction of Slope Protection along Naval-Caibiran Cross
Country Road (NCCR). The project is under contract with Chu
Construction with a contract cost of P41,600,000.00. The above
road section is prone to flooding hence drainage structure was
included in the Slope Protection project. Other than the slope
protection structure and drainage, concrete paving is also
included in the project. The completed project will provide a
structure that will prevent further landslide along this road
section and contain run-of water during rainy days to prevent
future damage to existing paved National Road.
