Husband-and-wife team Richard and Lucy break ground for Ormoc road project

The husband-and-wife team of Ormoc City Mayor Richard Gomez and Rep. Lucy Marie Torres-Gomez (4th District-Leyte) broke ground on Saturday for the opening of a road that will link two upland villages here.
The P128.215 million worth Gaas-Quezon Jr. Road will stretch nine kilometers and will ease the farmers' burden in transporting their produce.
The road opening will be 10-12 meters wide while the road itself will be one meter wider than the standard five-meter wide farm-to-market road (FMR), District Engineer Lino Francisco Gonzales said.
The project is targeted for completion on the first quarter of next year.
Being a mere road opening, only two kilometers will be concreted: 800 meters each on both sides of Gaas and Quezon Jr. Road, and critical sections in between.
Once completed, travel time between the two villages will be cut into a 15-minute motorcycle ride, Gonzales said. (PNA)
