CEBU CITY — Transporting of farm products will soon be convenient for farmers in San Remegio, Cebu as the Cebu provincial government has started works on the 2.7-kilometer farm-to-market road (FMR) project in the said northern town recently.
Oscar Pineda, of the Cebu Provincial Public Information Office, said Monday the P27 million project is targeted for completion by summer of next year.
Through this project, which links the mountainous barangays of San Remegio to the national highway, farm products will not only reach the market fast and still fresh for consumption.
Pineda said the FMR is funded through the Philippine Rural Development Project (PRDP) soft loan program.
The loan package will be paid by the national government with a 10 percent counterpart fund from the Cebu Capitol and with no cost to the local government unit beneficiary.
Meanwhile, Pineda also bared that construction works on the Provincial Hospital in Danao City will resume next month. It was suspended last year due to lack of favorable endorsement from the Cebu Provincial Board.
Aside from proceeding with the construction, the provincial government will also add more medical professionals and equipment for the 50-bed-capacity hospital. (PNA)
