BALANGA CITY, Bataan – Two high ranking officials of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) in Bataan province had been exerting sheer effort in the widening of Roman Highway from the province’s First District all the way to the Second District.
District Engineer Erlindo Flores says the work on the road widening project in the first district had been in full blast, with 95% of right of way issues in his district already settled.
“Only five percent of right-of-way rows are still being worked out,” Flores added. He noted though that some land owners refused to be paid their lawful due for the right-of-way.
In the second district on the other hand, District Engineer Ulysses Llado said he sees no problem with right-of-way issues. “Although there are still minor problems somewhere, these are promptly resolved by our office with the cooperation of contractors,” Llado pointed out.
“Kung kailangang kami mag-abono ginagawa at gagawin na namin wag lang magkaproblema,” the D.E. from Nueva Ecija province said.
The widening of Roman Highway is now being done in anticipation of the proposed Bataan-Cavite Bridge, according to sources. The bridge is expected to solve the monstrous traffic mess in Metro Manila. A number of consultants from different countries, Llado said, had been visiting his office to inquire about the said proposed bridge project.
