TACLOBAN CITY – To provide more convenient travel along the Palo-Carigara-Ormoc road portion, the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Leyte 2nd District Engineering Office (L2DEO) has reported the completion of the rehabilitation, reconstruction, and upgrading of damaged paved roads on the said primary roads.

The project allotment of P34.25 million involves the re-blocking of damaged Portland Cement Concrete Pavement (PCCP) traversing Barangay Balud in Capoocan town.

An application of 555 linear meters of asphalt overlay has been laid on the existing four lanes to provide a smoother travel experience. The provision of thermoplastic pavement markings enhances visibility during nighttime and rainy conditions, directing vehicles on the appropriate path.

District Engineer Leo Edward Oppura mentioned that the project aims to enhance road quality, safety, longevity, efficiency of travel for the public, and reduce vehicle maintenance costs.

“The upgraded road has improved accessibility to schools, government offices, and other private and public entities in the area, enhancing the overall experience for motorists and travelers,” he stated.
