By Jun Tagabunlang
PROSPERIDAD, Agusan del Sur – The Department of Public Works and Highways Agusan del Sur 1st District Engineering Office (DPWH Agusan del Sur 1st DEO) has continued the rehabilitation efforts to pave road networks in its area of responsibility.
According to DPWH Agusan del Sur 1st DEO District Engineer (DE) Jose Caesar A. Radaza, construction works are underway in the city of Bayugan and municipalities of Sibagat, Prosperidad, San Luis, Talacogon and Esperanza.
This came after reports claimed that Radaza has been doing nothing to implement road rehabilitation in those areas especially in San Luis and Talacogon.
“We have been doing everything to fast track road rehab projects here in our area of responsibility,” he said. In fact, his office is set to hire 539 workers in villages for road repair and maintenance for this year.
This will be under the Community-Based Employment Program (CBEP), which aims to help the government’s employment program. The CBEP provides temporary or immediate employment to skilled, semi-skilled, and low-skilled workers in the community where infrastructure or non-infrastructure projects are undertaken.
To date, 401 jobs have already been generated under CBEP.
