600 Meters Road Sections Along Buyagan-Wangal-Banengbeng Provincial Road Improved
ROAD SECTIONS with an aggregate length of over 600 meters along Buyagan-Wangal-Banengbeng provincial road were constructed with road shoulders to help reduce passing conflicts between motor vehicles and pedestrians as well as to provide space for bicyclists to ride at their own pace. This includes the construction of a retaining wall and a barrier along a 45-meter section in Banengbeng to prevent vehicular accidents. Governor Dr. Melchor Daguines Diclas has earlier allocated P5 million for this project as part of the administration’s effort in providing easy and safe road access.

The province of Benguet promises its constituents high age expectancy, accessible high caliber education and more than sufficient way of living. This, however, can't be achieved without the help of its people.
The cultural beliefs and innate characteristics of the people made it possible for them to strive and develop higher quality of life without destroying the cradle that they live in.
