Yes! Nature won! The road project traversing Mt. Guiting-guiting has been cancelled. We laud Engr. Napoleon S. Famadico and his DPWH team for the honest response and decision. These are the truths behind the Cross Country Road Project according to DPWH:
1. They "find it difficult to secure and prepare the documents due to time constraint", these are the "requirements for the ECC and feasibility study to justify the necessity of implementing the project".
2. The project is "not included in the list projects proposed by... the District Office for funding in the National Expenditure Program (NEP) but were only included in the final list of projects funded in the Approved 2018 GAA".
DPWH "decided not to implement anymore" the project and has "already cancelled the bidding and has requested to realign the projects or revert the funds allocated".
