THE provincial office of the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) in Negros Oriental turned over a Tulay ng Pangulo Para sa Kaunlarang Pang-Agraryo (TPKP) project to the local government unit of Bindoy last June 25, 2018.

The 28.1-linear meter Ayumit Bridge with road and carriageway width of 7.0 linear meters now connects the residents of five barangays in the area, namely Camudlas, Tubod, Manseje, part of Danawan and Salong to the town proper.

The DAR funded the construction of the TPKP project worth more than P28.1 million and implemented by the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH).

The turnover ceremony was highlighted with the message of Undersecretary for Foreign-Assisted Projects Office Sylvia Mallari from the DAR Central Office who emphasized that good governance and sustainability are very important for the project to last longer. “Where you find the bridges, you find the genuine development,” she added.

DAR Regional Director Luis Bueno, Jr. emphasized that the project will benefit the different farmers’ groups in the area, such as the Domolog-Poblacion-Tagaytay Farmer’s Association, Hacienda Asuncion Producers Association, Matobato Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries Association, Bulod Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries Association, and Bindoy Federated Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries Association.
