PIA Press Release

Panabo sees coastal road expansion

by RG Alama

Davao City (9 October) -- The Provincial Government of Davao del Norte is eyeing the expansion of the present Panabo Coastal Road, which runs from the city's coastal barangays of JP Laurel unto Cagangohan also in the City.

According to Panabo City Mayor Jose Silvosa Sr., the Province is planning to expand the coastal road unto the coastal Barangay of La Paz in the nearby Carmen Municipality. The road is being proposed for conversion as a national road.

Mayor Silvosa said that the Coastal Road is planned as a diversion road to the National highway; it is being eyed as an alternate route since the segment of the highway which traverses the City proper is becoming congested.

"The highway, which is Panabo's lone artery, has become busy especially after classes in the afternoon, when the children leave the schools." The Mayor said. With the expanded coastal road, motorists can have a diversion route to bypass Panabo downtown.

In earlier interviews Davao del Norte Governor Rodolfo del Rosario said that the expanded coastal road can bring development to the seaside areas of Carmen, the same way the Panabo Coastal road has benefited the coastal barangays of Cagangohan and Carmen.

The Governor said that these coastal areas in Carmen are high areas and are not prone to flooding which is ideal for development.

During Mayor Silvosa's press conference held yesterday (October 8) at the City Library, the City had pass a resolution to the Department of Public Works and Highways to initiate the expansion project. (PIA XI) [top]
