TACLOBAN CITY– The Leyte 2nd District Engineering Office (L2DEO) of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has reported the completion of the road upgrading of a busy road in Barugo town.

District Engineer Leo Edward Oppura mentioned that 7,095 square meters of asphalt have been laid on top of existing pavement in Poblacion District II in the said town to provide a smooth road to motorists and the traveling public.

The project, which covers the Bagahupi-Babatngon-Sta Cruz-Barugo-Carigara road, costs P19.51 million and intends to make travel safer and more convenient.

Additionally, it improves the road’s surface capability, making it easier and quicker to get to the nearby government offices, schools, health facilities, and other public and commercial entities.

Other provisions of this project include a 41.12 meters of off-carriageway, re-blocking of damaged pavement, and the application of reflectorized thermoplastic pavement markings to ensure the safety of motorists and pedestrians, especially at night.
