Opens Sub Office, Peopleâ€™s Day in Ubay
Bohol puts in place access to more tourism sites as it sets to begin work on a number of key provincial road projects.
Gov. Edgar Chatto on Wednesday led simultaneous groundbreaking ceremonies of provincial road projects under the Provincial Road Tourism Highway, a convergence program of the Department of Tourism (DOT) and the Department of Public Works and Highways.
Chatto was joined by DPWH Regional Director Ador Canlas as well as district and provincial engineers and local officials in simple capsule laying rites for the concreting of two provincial roads in Ubay.
Cong. Aris Aumentado and Ubay Municipal Officials headed by Mayor Gale Atup and Vice Mayor Nelson Uy joined the groundbreaking ceremonies for the P100M concreting of Cabulao-Ondol Mabini to Union, Ubay Road, an access road to nautical highway, leading to the Ubay RORO port.
The road also connects to Tapal Wharf, a key commerce link between Ubay and Pres. Carlos P. Garcia Island and all the way to Anda in the southbound direction.
Another project in Ubay is the concreting of Sinandigan Road, leading to the Sinandigan Boardwalk, Fish Sanctuary, and Sinandigan Beach.
Also set to begin work is the P60M concreting of Dait-Cambuhat Road, leading to the renowned Cambuhat Village and Oyster Farm in Buenavista.
The governor then met with municipal officials as he inspected with engineers and contractors the ongoing P100M concreting of Catigbian-Canmano Road in Sagbayan, which leads to Sagabayan Peak, Chocolate Hills, and the Danao Adventure Park.
The tourism highway convergence program of the DOT and the DPWH improves connectivity of roads leading to airports, seaports, and declared tourism destinations and is set to increase tourism activities as more tourism products are being readied in the province.
Chatto likewise inspected other road projects funded by the Provincial Government of Bohol and PRMF â€“Australia funded roads.
Meanwhile, new access to public service is opened as Chatto also led on the same day the blessing and inauguration of the 4th Governorâ€™s Sub-office in Ubay.
One of major initiatives in sharing leadership and providing service to the people, Chatto established Peopleâ€™s Day, where he brings a medical team, a legal team as well as a social welfare team to sub-offices, in addition to the already institutionalized Peopleâ€™s Day on Mondays at the Capitol. With the opening of the Ubay sub-office, the governor plans to establish Mondays as People’s Day throughout all offices, making the rounds weekly in sub-offices in Talibon, Jagna, and Carmen.
