PALO, Palo, Leyte -- The site development for the temporary shelters for the victims of Tropical Storm “Agaton” in Brgy. Maganhan, Baybay City, Leyte has now been completed.

According to last week’s status report on site development activities on the temporary shelters, the Department of Public Works and Highways 8 (DPWH-8) has completed clearing the 2-hectare site as well as surfacing of road right-of-way and building area.

“Day in, day out, our task force worked hard in preparing the site for the construction of 80 housing units that are meant for the residents who have been displaced by TS Agaton,” said Regional Director Allan S. Borromeo.

These housing units which are funded by the Office of the Civil Defense Region VIII are now being constructed by the 546th Engineer Combat Battalion (546ECB), 53rd Engineer Brigade.

“We will now be focusing on fast-tracking the site development for temporary shelters in Brgy. Tinalian in Abuyog, Leyte,” Borromeo added.

In Abuyog, the deployed workers have already completed the removal of 26 trees and are currently conducting the clearing and grubbing activities including bolling of trees. The task force has also completed 180 meters of access road towards the relocation site, translating to an overall accomplishment of the site development activities at 25.17% as of June 10 report.
