The new concrete bridge on the road to Barangay San Francisco (Capangihan) has been a great relief to local residents since its completion almost a year now.

            That is why, although a bit late, the residents led by their chairman, Jose Fuentes and other officials, would like to express their gratitude to President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo for making it one of her priority projects.  The project was under the president’s Bridge Program – II assisted by the Austrian Government thru then DILG Secretary Jose D. Lina, and implemented by Sorsogon Governor Raul R. Lee.

            Unlike before, the residents can now travel with their goods to the market and back even on rainy days without fear that floods would easily wash their bridge away.

            With this development, the residents could just hope that their roads be given the same attention.  In imminent need of renovation, having such asphalted or cemented would encourage tourists, both foreign and local, to see and experience what their barangay has to offer. 

One of the more famous falls in the province, the Bayugin, is within their limits. The same applies to Buko Pass, an enduring witness to the strong resistance that the locals in this side of the province fielded against the Americans.
