BAGAC, Bataan – Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Secretary Mark Villar, over the weekend, gave his assurance that the 44-kilometer Bagac-Mariveles bypass road will be fast tracked.

Visiting the remote barangay Binuangan of this town, Sec. Villar assured Gov. Abet S. Garcia that the remaining 4-km rough road will be funded and concreted immediately.

Villar was accompanied by Asec. Eugenio Pipo, Director Antonio Molano, District engineers Erlindo Flores, Jr, Janet Nero, of the DPWH’s 1st and 2nd engineering districts, respectively and others.
Once completed, said bypass road will not only shorten travel time from Mariveles-Bagac-Morong all the way to Subic and Olongapo City, but also open the avenue for tourism and business opportunities within the province. Travel time from Morong to Mariveles normally takes about two hours, passing through Pilar-Orion and Limay towns, but with the bypass road, travel time will be shortened by an hour.

“The project was started way back in 2014, and was opened and concreted gradually because it requires a huge amount of funding,” pointed out Gov. Garcia.

Some earlier opined that said bypass road project was almost impossible to be done due to the mountains that it will have to pass through, but it happened through the initiative of then Congressman now governor Abet Garcia.
