TACLOBAN CITY– To enhance connectivity and accessibility from the coastal areas to the national highway, the Leyte 2nd District Engineering Office (L2DEO) of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has allotted P29.6 million for the concreting road project in Dulag town.

District Engineer Leo Edward Oppura reported that construction of the road is now underway in Barangay Salvacion.

He mentioned that the road concreting will be constructed at two sites located in Salvacion, leading to the Daang Maharlika Road, and in Brgy. Rizal.

Brgy. Salvacion will have 434 meters of Portland Cement Concrete Pavement (PCCP) in a 5-meter width with 70-meter stone masonry.

Meanwhile, Rizal’s PCCP will measure 1,008 meters in length and 6.10 meters in width, and a triple barrel box culvert will be constructed at station 0+780.

The completion of this project will promote local tourism, especially every summer season when visitors flock to the beach resort along the bay areas of Dulag town.

Aside from providing better accessibility to tourists, the communities are more beneficial to this infrastructure. Once completed, these projects will offer livelihoods and opportunities for local trading, thus increasing economic revenues.

Funded under the DPWH CY 2024-Basic Infrastructure Program, the project commenced on March 21, 2024, and is expected to be completed on August 5, 2024.
