NAVAL, Biliran – An
access road leading to Naval seaport has been improved by the
Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) -Biliran District
Engineering Office (DEO).
From a bumpy and narrow
existing concrete road, travellers along Vicentillo Extension to
Naval port is experiencing a great difference of travel with the
completion of DPWH-Biliran DEO access road project.
Mr. David Julian Culibra,
who frequently pass along this road section in going home said that
he now enjoys riding his motorcycle along this road.
Before the rehabilitation
project of DPWH, the road along this section had intermittent big
potholes, posing danger to the travelling public.
“The existing substandard
concrete road shows rutting and depressions and it was difficult to
drive because the road is uneven,” explained Culibra.
In convergence with the
DPWH and the Department of Transportation (DOTr), DPWH-Biliran DEO
has included the rehabilitation of this project under its 2017
Regular Infrastructure Program with a contract cost of P37.13M.
According to District
Engineer David P. Adongay Jr., the project was prioritized because
of the traffic congestion along this route during peak hours due to
its damaged surface.
The said project involves
the rehabilitation of damaged substandard local road with a width of
6.10-meter and a thickness of 0.23-meter and with a length of
1.390-kilometer two lane road. It also involves a construction of
754-meter length of drainage canal and payment of Road-Right-Of-Way
(RROW). Application of asphalt overlay with thermoplastic pavement
is also included in the scope of work.
At present, it has already
a smooth surface and is much safer for the traveling public.
“This is the kind of road
I like to travel every day,” said Culibra.
