One resolution deals with the LMP’s request to the Regional Development Council to include in the Regional Development Investment Plan for 2014 – 2016 the construction of a road linking Lasam to Sto. Niño and another one connecting Rizal and Lasam. These roads shall serve as alternate routes in case the Magapit Bridge cannot be used during repairs. Besides, the road networks can hasten development activities, including tourism, in these areas.
The same goal is targeted by two other resolutions requesting the rehabilitation of the Provincial roads from Iguig to Baggao, and from Baggao to Penablanca.
