CALBAYOG CITY – The
Department of Public Works and Highways -Samar First District
Engineering Office completes the construction of 4,908 square meters
of slope protection structures along Daang Maharlika in Rosalem, San
It is under contract with
Victoria Development and Construction Supply Corporation with a
total appropriation of P50 million from the 2017 GAA fund.
structures are designed to protect the soil surface from erosive
forces and improve the stability of soil slopes that are subject to
seepage or have poor soil structure.
“This project has a great
benefit to us because it prevents road collapse in our area caused
by the continuous heavy rains during the rainy season that weakened
the soil surface,” said Juley Mabahin, a resident of Rosalem.
The project is of great
impact especially to the residents of Rosalem and motorists passing
along the said road section since possible soil erosion landslides
or collapsed of road will be prevented.
