LA TRINIDAD, Benguet -- Unfinished primary and secondary national roads that would connect farms from main roads to major arteries and to markets in Benguet will be prioritized for construction.
            Rep. Ronald Cosalan said he will prioritize completion of such roads before funding other types of roads.
National roads in the province have a total stretch of 475 kilometers or less than 20 kilometers which still needs to be paved, he said.
Cosalan, who is now on his third term in Congress, funded more than 200 kilometers span of road in the province. 
After finishing national roads, other types of roads he plans to rehabilitate are existing farm to market roads, provincial, municipal or barangay roads, said Cosalan. 
He said infrastructure such as roads are priorities even at the provincial and municipal governments as indicated in their Annual Investment Plan.
Over the years, government records bared the living standards of Benguet constituents particularly farmers and their families have improved due to construction and improvement of roads in the province initiated and funded by the congressman’s office.
Cosalan was also instrumental in livelihood projects in the province.     
Another priority of Cosalan is the granting of scholarship to students. He believes that education of children is of prime importance.
