Rehabilitation of Road Towards Peace and Development

Lianga, Surigao Del Sur – The 3rd Special Forces “Arrowhead” Battalion (3SFBn) together with the 544th Engineer Construction Battalion as agents of peace and development, together with the Provincial Government of Surigao del Sur and Municipality of Lianga implemented the rehabilitation of farm to market road from KM 7 to KM 16 of Brgy. Diatagon, Lianga, Surigao del Sur to facilitate the entry of government services and transportation of farm produce from said barangay to the local markets.

The scope of the project covers the road clearing and widening from KM 7 to KM 16 and installation of box culvert at KM 12 and flat slab bridge construction at KM 14 of said barangay.

Recently, the GMA Kapuso Foundation proposed and planned for the construction of Tension Bridge in KM 16. However, the project has not been realized due to the absence of the flat slab bridge at KM 14 that is capable of carrying heavy equipment needed for the construction of said project.

The farm to market road from KM 7 to KM 16 of Brgy. Diatagon, serves as the only thoroughfare that links to its interior sitios and the other barangays of Lianga. However, recent typhoons badly damaged the said road, making it difficult to traverse.

Lt. Col. Benedict Harvey Gernale, Commanding Officer of 3SFBn expressed his gratitude to the Provincial and Municipal Government of Surigao del Sur and Lianga on their sincere efforts to alleviate the living condition of the IP Community in Brgy Diatagon. He further added that the said convergence will pave the way in attaining Peace and development in Andap Valley.
