DPWH intensifies road right of way monitoring in Siargao Island

SIARGAO ISLAND, Surigao del Norte. June 25 -- In an effort to fast track implementation of its projects in Siargao and Bucas Grande islands, the Department of Public Works and Highways Surigao del Norte 2nd District Engineering Office (DPWH-SDN 2nd DEO) has intensified its monitoring on the illegal construction of structures along the perimeter of the national highway.

During the district office monthly staff meeting recently, District Engineer Salvador E. Montil, Jr. has directed the road right-of-way agent and all field engineers to monitor closely and take immediate proper actions on road right-of-way problems so as not to hamper any government improvement projects in the island.

“We must intensify our monitoring on the road right-of-way to avoid delays of the implementation of the projects,” DE Montil said.

As of June 2011, there are 121 illegally constructed structures within the road right-of-way of national roads reported.

Notices have been already issued by the district office to the violators for the removal of the illegal structures along the national roads. (DPWH-Surigao del Norte /PIA-Caraga)
