Help Coming for Farm Roads in Rural North

Edmond Castro

On our visit to Maskall today we were confronted by a common problem in the agriculture sector: poor road infrastructure. While the Nago Bank Road was at least in serviceable condition, it was quite a bumpy ride over the black dirt road, with heavy grooves and other obstacles, to Alex Pineda’s cooperative farming community site. As it is now “dry season,” area rep Edmond Castro promised that the trucks would soon be in the area to smooth the road over.

“As it relates to the road infrastructure, as you have any farm road, you have to be constantly upgrading the farm roads. The dry is on now; we will be passing through and taking care of all our farm roads, all the farm roads in the area – Nago Bank, Kelly Pan, and all the other roads we will be dealing with them, along with some of the other feeders.”

“The road will be fixed so that it’s drivable?”

“Definitely, every year we go through the village roads and the farmers’ roads so it’s an annual thing. Now that the dry is on, we will try to rush it within the next six to ten weeks.”
