PIA Press Release

Camarines Sur-Albay diversion road completed

by LV Castaņeda

Legazpi City (28 February) -- The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Bicol has completed their road opening project along the territory of Camarines Sur and Albay provinces.

Engr. Amy Fajardo, OIC District Engineer of the 4th District Engineering Office (DEO) in Camarines Sur said "This road opening project traverses through the three municipalities of Bula, Balatan and Bato, all of this province."

An initial funding of P250 million for 13 road projects along the total road stretch of 15.940 kms. was infused on this proposed highway.

"Of this appropriation, we have opened 11.450 kms. of the proposed highway leaving only 4.490 kms., at intermittent sections, to be cleared," she explained.

Fajardo noted "this road segment will soon connect the 2nd District of Camarines Sur to the 3rd district of Albay passing through the 4th District of Camarines Sur. Thus, will likewise serve as an alternative route to and from Manila via Maharlika Highway, cutting travel time by about an hour."

The project intends to provide additional road network to connect the coastal towns located on the western seaboard of Camarines Sur, thereby spurring tourism potential in the area. It will also provide a faster and more convenient way to transport marine and agricultural products from the far-flung barangays to its prospective market.

"Camarines Sur-Albay Diversionn road is part of the priority project of the present administration through Her Excellency, President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, dubbed as Pan Philippine Highway," said Bicol regional director Orlando Roces.

"This is designed to widen the reach of opportunity and progress through better road accessibility in the countryside," he concluded. (DPWH/PIA) [top]
