LA TRINIDAD, Benguet,  (PIA) - -  The provincial board approved a measure  endorsing to the Department of Public Works and Highways- Cordillera   the conversion of  three  local    roads to national roads that would pave the way in boosting the economy of the province.

The board passed Resolution Number 11-132 favorably endorsing to DPWH-CAR thru Regional Director Edilberto Carabbacan the conversion of various local roads into national roads.

Officer-In-Charge District Engineer Dominador Daway of the Benguet Engineering District II  identified these as  the Ifugao-Benguet Road or the Buguias-Tinoc Road whose conversion to national road was earlier sought by Ifugao Congressman Teodoro Baguilat Jr;  the  Natubleng-Nabalicong-Pacso-Kabayan provincial road and Madaymen-Kibungan provincial road.

As national roads, there is bigger budget for maintenance  making for  better road access for vegetable trading and marketing as these roads  all  traverse   vegetable producing towns.

Such roads are fitting for conversion or upgraded as national roads as premised in the resolution as several existing local roads within the province are also being utilized as diversion roads especially during calamities.

When the national roads are closed, these local roads need bigger slice of the budget for maintenance, it  stated in the measure.

One of the requirements for the conversion of local roads to national roads is a resolution of endorsement from the provincial board. *( JDP/SCA - PIA CAR, Benguet)
