The Ministry of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Leyte Second
District Engineering Office advises the public to keep the 20-meter
minimum width requirement on national roads.

Maintenance department Chief
Francisco Robin, Jr. has said that there must be the right one
dissemination of information to the public for the construction of
residential, business or other locations within 20 meters
parameter to make way for the road-priority program.

"Let us inform us
neighbors to keep the 20-meter-long construction zone for the road
widening and major projects for flood management. Let's help together
the spread therefore when the time is right, investments will not go
in waste, "Robin said.

He added those obstructions
within the established "right-of-way" of existing national roads
moved by the projects will not be compensated by

The Republic Act 10752 or
"The Right-of-Way Act" states that "the government can really become
property needed as a priority website or location for each citizen
government for every infrastructure project of the national government
through donation, negotiated sale, expropriation or any other form of
acquisition as required by law. "However, this law only applies to
new construction or road opening projects involving the road
right-of-way has not been acquired before.

The road expansion project
DPWH aims to use the burgeoning number of vehicles
population in the country that leads to traffic congestion. This one
is also planning to cultivate safety among motorists who go to and from
places within the region.
