These road infrastructures include the rehabilitation of damaged paved roads in KO128+842 to KO129+298 section of Junction Layac-Balanga-Mariveles Port Road in Orion; asphalting of the KO150+000 to KO150+750 section of the Governor J.J. Linao Road in the Municipality of Pilar; and the improvement of the existing access road that connects Bagac-Mariveles Road and Sitio Caybobo leading to the famous beaches of barangay Paysawan in Bagac town.
The projects amounting to P74.58 million were implemented by DPWH’s Bataan 2nd District Engineering Office (DEO).
DPWH District Engineer Ulysses Llado said these were implemented in support of the government’s goal of enhancing mobility along the area aimed at providing enhanced economic activities and boost the province’s tourism industry.
Meanwhile, Bataan 2nd DEO also finished the P49 million flood control structure along Umagol River in Bagac which is expected to ease the worries of families living in flood-prone areas during heavy rains.
“Taking seriously the threat of the COVID-19, we remind our field workers to strictly comply with the imposed health and safety protocols in construction sites. We know that the construction sector can help lead the recovery of our local economy, the reason why we are determined to fast-track the implementation of these projects and at the same time ensure the safety of our employees at the different project sites,” Llado added.
