The Road Engineering Association of the  Philippines (REAP) was born out of the desire of a group of road engineering practitioners to establish an organization whose members, equipped with the technical know how in the planning, designing, constructing and maintaining roads and allied structures can communicate, collaborate and educate each other.

 

            The REAP was established in 1976 in preparation for the holding of the 2nd REAAA (Road Engineering Association of Asia and Australasia) Conference on October 16-20, 1978 in the Philippines, through the efforts of the then DPH (Department of Public Highways) Secretary Baltazar Aquino as REAP President and other DPH Officials as officers.  Secretary Aquino became the 1st Honorary Member of the  REAAA.

 

            In 1979, DPH Assistant Minister Nestor  A. Quinto, REAP Secretary appointed as Executive Director by Minister Baltazar Aquino, on the following reasons:

 

  1. That REAP continue Liaisoning with REAAA and its member countries.
  2. That REAP sponsor and undertake a seminar-workshop in Manila Materials Quality Control to be participated in by Senior Engineers from REAAA Member countries.
  3. That REAP help in the planning, organizing and operation of REAAA Regional Center.

 

In 1981, then MPH  Deputy Minister  Oscar Rodriguez became the second REAP President.  In 1982, the REAP Board passed a resolution electing then MPWH Minister Jesus Hipolito as REAP President.

 

            In 1986, the MPWH Assistant Minister  Jose F. David & City Engineer Romulo M. del Rosario of Manila elected as REAP President and Vice-President, respectively.  The presidential post was left vacant with the retirement of Mr. David and although it were through a period of inactivity, the  dedication of its members provided the continuing life of the organization.

 

            In a move to revive the association, an organizational meeting was held on February 1990 through the efforts of Engr. Romulo M. del Rosario who was promoted as DPWH Undersecretary.  This meeting was marked with the amendment of the REAP By-Laws, the election of a new set of Officers and Board of Directors and notably the participation of the private sector along with the government sector involved in road engineering and selected fields.

 

            Contractors as well as consultants from the private sector are  now involved in REAP undertakings.

 

In the first  General Meeting of the Officers and Board of Directors on March 23, 1990, the  body  agreed to prepare the necessary insertions in the By-Laws, naming the Secretary of Public Works & Highways as Honorary Chairman of the Board.  The Incumbent  Secretary  of the Department of Public Works and Highways DPWH is being named as Honorary Chairman of the Board considering the close relationship that is inevitably established between the DPWH and the Association in view of REAP’s objectives which focus on road engineering.  During that time  as per Resolution No. 3 dated April 15, 1990, the first  REAP  Honorary Chairman  of the Board was then Honorable  Secretary Fiorello R. Estuar.

           

True  to its objectives, REAP has been advancing the science  of road engineering and continuing education,  REAP had six (6) scholars for the Masteral Course in Civil Engineering, Major in Transportation Engineering who were graduated from the University of the Philippines.  Funds were provided by  the Department of Science and Technology (DOST), through the Philippine Council for Industry and Energy Research and Development.  This effort  was made  during the term of Dr. Angel L. Lazaro III  (1992-1994)  & DPWH Senior Undersecretary Manuel M. Bonoan(1994-1996). 

 

REAP has  created eight  (8) chapters:  Region I – La Union, CAR – Baguio City, Region VIII – Eastern Visayas, Region X – Cagayan de Oro City,  Lanao del Sur, Region XII- Koronadal City, North Cotabato Engineering Office & Region XIII – Butuan City.

 

Through the efforts of the first Filipino REAAA Individual (Regular) member who later became member of the REAAA Governing Council, Engr. Alfredo Torres, former DPWH Regional Director, Region IV-A,  former DPWH Assistant Secretary Jose F. David  and  retired DPWH Undersecretary Romulo M. del Rosario who was also became an individual  member of the REAAA Governing Council in 1990,  who later indorsed REAP to be an Institutional REAAA Member. 

 

REAP was elected as Institutional Member of REAAA in 1990, and  became a  member of the REAAA Governing Council in 1992, represented by former  Undersecretary del Rosario as REAP President.  From then on, REAP sent its representative in  every REAAA Governing Council Meeting  to be  held twice a year in different Asian countries.   Dr. Angel L.
