An Act converting the road network connecting Barangay Handong in the municipality of Libmanan and Barangay Bridge 1 also in the municipality of Libmanan into a national road.
This Bill seeks to convert the road network connecting Barangay Handong in the
Municipality of Libmanan to the Boundary of Barangay Bridge 1, also within the
Municipality of Libmanan into a National Road.
Such road network herein proposed to be converted into a National Road is
strategically connected to the economic centers within the Province of Camarines Sur
and the Bicol Region and is vital to accelerate development and increase economic
activity within the Second District primarily, and the entire Camarines Sur and the Bicol
Region as a whole.
The conversion of the said road network will facilitate faster and efficient
transportation of basic goods and the delivery of necessary services. It is projected that
such road conversion shall promote livelihood opportunities, encourage competitive flow
of investment, and ultimately enhance the economic and social living conditions not just
of the people living along such roads, but in the arterial secondary and tertiary roads
that lead to it.
The administrative requirements for the conversion of local roads to national
roads as prescribed by Statutes and by the Department of Public Works and Highways
have been substantially met, and the approval of this bill is earnestly sought.
