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 catastrophes.
