Good Day

About road widening projects...

We have a property near the diversion road , all with land title and building permits. Now the dpwh is asking for 10 meters of the 3 houses we have for the road widening project. The meeting with the division engineer they told us that our property will not be compensated. The head of engineering of dpwh told us that compensation is only applied to new road but not for property affected by road wideninhs. It's hard for us to accept their final statement. We wanted to seek legal advice since the property they will use is privately owned. I am hoping that I can get feedbacks on what we can do in this situation.. Thank you in advance. Godbless

Every taking of private property for public use should be compensated. It does not matter if it is for new roads or road widening projects.

Do not consent to them taking the property without compensation. You have to protect your property.
