DPWH Improves Road Leading to Aurora's White Beach

Thursday, September 8, 2016

Tourists and locals will be having a smoother travel experience to and from a white beach destination in the province of Aurora with the completion of a road improvement project.

The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has recently completed the upgrading works of 16-kilometer Dinadiawan-Casiguran Section of Baler-Casiguran Road, which leads to Casapsapan Beach in Casiguran, Aurora - known for its white sand and crystal clear water.

Baler-Casiguran Road is a national road located in the mid-eastern coast of Luzon in the Province of Aurora and is of strategic importance in the country’s arterial road network.

The improved road will further boost the tourism industry of Casiguran, as well as other parts of Aurora as it will further strengthen the access to the town of Baler where the province’s primary economic development and emergency centers are located.

A total of P231 Million was allocated by the DPWH for the completion of the tourism road project. DPWH Region 3 has also allocated budget for new bridges along the Baler-Casiguran Road to be completed before 2016 ends. This includes the Dianed Bridge 1 and 2, and the Simbaham “B” Bridge with combined cost of P98.9 million.
