CALBAYOG CITY – A
road opening from Barangay Hindang, Sta. Margarita crossing to
Barangay Cagbanyacao, Calbayog City has been completed by Samar
First District Engineering Office with a total appropriation of
P50-million from the General Appropriations Act of 2018.
The only means of
transportation going to and from the said barangays is through
habal-habal. A population of more than 340 from both barangays can
now pass through Barangay Hindang to Sta. Margarita. Barangay
Cagbanyacao is now part of the interconnected barangays of the
district to give them easier and faster travel to the city proper or
to any of their destinations.
Travel time from Barangay
Cagbanyacao to Barangay Hindang is now reduced to 10 minutes from 15
minutes and from said barangays to Calbayog City proper is reduced
to 40 minutes from 1 hr.
The gravel road opening
spans at 1,653 meters with a width of 9 meters. A road slope
protection of 180 meters was incorporated because the road goes
through a mountainous area to prevent erosion or landslides on the
sides of the road during rainy season or if there are any
