PEÑARANDA, Nueva Ecija––Officials on Tuesday (June 22) inaugurated two bridge projects that were expected to benefit residents and farmers in several villages here.

Agrarian Reform Sec. John Castriciones led the opening of the San Mariano-Barrio Militar and Diwalaan bridges.


The 40.20-linear-meter San Mariano-Barrio Militar Bridge connects this town and Palayan City, the capital of Nueva Ecija.

The Diwalaan Bridge, located at the boundaries of the villages of Las Piñas and Sinasajan, spans 17.20 linear meters.


Castriciones said the bridges were constructed in collaboration with the Department of Agrarian Reform, the Department of Public Works and Highways, and the local government under the “Tulay ng Pangulo Program.”

The completed projects have a combined cost of P14.11 million that was financed through foreign-assisted projects, he said.

“While the pandemic forces us to keep distance from each other, these bridges bring us closer,” Castriciones said during the occasion. INQ
