MAASIN CITY – The Department of Public Works and Highways field office here will pave roads leading to five tourism destinations in Southern Leyte next year.
Recently, the DPWH bidded out the more than P60 million worth of tourism road projects to ensure timely completion next year.
“Of the first seven 2018 projects bidded this month, five are tourism roads,” Junia said.
These road-access projects will lead to Bitoon beach in Liloan town, Buenavista dive site in Padre Burgos town, Calag-itan fish sanctuary and Doña Marta and Casa Isabel Cave in Hinunangan town, and Hindag-an falls in St. Bernard town.
“These roads are just few of our many projects next year in our effort to make the province more accessible to travellers and tourists,” Junia said.
Works for the concreting will include construction of covered canal and installation of slope protection.
The site for tourism access road project has been identified through a convergence between the DPWH and Department of Tourism in the bid to attract more tourists to less developed communities. (PR)
