TACLOBAN CITY—In an effort to improve road safety and infrastructure, the DPWH Tacloban City District Engineering Office is currently undertaking a road asphalting project along Tigbao, Sta. Fe, and San Miguel Road.

The main objective of this project is to address various pressing concerns while providing smoother and more resilient roadways for both residents and commuters.

This resurfacing project is expected to significantly enhance the durability of the roads, making them more resistant to damages such as cracks, potholes, and other surface irregularities. As a result, it will help prevent the occurrence of vehicular accidents that pose risks to people’s lives.

Additionally, this project was funded under the 2024 General Appropriations Act, with a total amount of P74,530,951,26. Currently, the project is already 86% complete and is on track to finish within the given timeframe.

“When the project is completed, it will greatly benefit all road users in Tigbao, Sta. Fe, and San Miguel by ensuring their safety and reducing the occurrence of vehicular accidents caused by damaged roads,” stated OIC District Engineer, Rebecca G. Yuse.(PR)
