Mapanas Mayor Francis John Tejano and Palapag Mayor Marlo Agno lauded President Rodrigo Duterte for making the Simora-Palapag road a reality.

South Korea has loaned the Philippines P977.5 million for the Samar Pacific Coastal Road and Simora-Palapag Road project.

“We are thankful to President Duterte, to our district representative, and the governor who pushed for this road project that will connect our town to Catarman,” Tejano said.

The residents of the municipalities of Palapag, Mapanas, Gamay, and Lapinig need two boat rides before they can reach the provincial capital of Catarman.

“That mode of transportation is very costly, that is why prices of goods here are high,” Agno said.

“Once the project is completed, this will help ease the lives of people here. The road will connect us to our provincial center and will also result in us having better access to the services the government is providing,” he added.
