Opening of Kalinga-Apayao inter-prov’l roads to boost  economy

March 14, 2021 Uncategorized

BALBALAN, Kalinga, July 13 (PIA) – – The opening of new road connections between Apayao, Kalinga and Abra will contribute in boosting the Cordillera region’s economy.   

Kalinga and Apayao provinces will soon be connected by another two road connections via Balbalan in the western corner and Pinukpuk as the center route of which both are towards Conner in Apayao.
 
The municipal road from Tawang, Balbalan to the boundary with Mabiga in Conner, Apayao was constructed. However, it is not yet open to traffic and only vehicles with the power to roll on rough road are using it at the moment.
 
Mayor Eric Gonayon said about six-kilometer of road opening from Tawang to Bassao boundary was implemented by the municipal local government unit. The Apayao side of the road is not yet open, he added.
 
Another proposed connecting road is via Malagnat in Pinukpuk to Daga in Conner if the proposed law converting the Apayao-Kalinga-Abra provincial road into a national road will be approved by Congress.
 
It can be recalled that District Representative Allen Jesse Mangaoang in the 18th Congress first regular session filed House Bill No. 590 seeking the conversion of said provincial road into a national road to realize vast economic opportunities to benefit both provinces.

Said provincial road starts from Barangay Buluan in Conner traversing through Barangay Daga to Sacpil then to Pinukpuk via Taggay, Ammacian and Wagod, and continues to the farm-to-market road from Wagod to Aciga, all of Pinupuk then to Tawang-Buaya-Mabaca-Gawaan-Liglig-Salegseg, all of Balbalan until the border with Abra.
 
Should this road be turned into a national road with the higher capability of the Department of Public Works and Highways, the benefits derived therefrom will be great for all stakeholders. The improvement of this road will open vast tracks of agricultural lands into production areas and small-scale industries along this long stretch of road will be established. Peace and order will also be achieved when people are contented earning income from homegrown livelihood enterprises.

The upgrading and enhancement of said road would also serve as alternative route to tourism destinations and an alternative route from Region 1 to Region 2. (JDP/PAB-PIA CAR, Kalinga)
