  One of the earthquake-damaged infrastructures in the Province of Bohol, the installation of 120 lineal meter modular steel bridge by the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) as temporary replacement to the affected two (2) spans and one (1) pier of Abatan Bridge at kilometer 10+187 in Maribojoc restores the Tagbilaran North Road connection between Tagbilaran to the municipalities of Maribojoc and Loon and bring back to normalcy since November 23, 2013 the 30-minutes travel time from Tagbilaran City to Loon from the long three (3) hours journey after the strong earthquake jolted Central Visayas Region on October 15, 2013.

TWO (2) EARTHQUAKE-DAMAGED BRIDGES IN BOHOL RESTORED

Top 

  Two (2) key bridges following the October 15, 2013 earthquake that hit the Province of Bohol in Central Visayas Region are now passable to vehicular traffic. President Benigno S. Aquino III together with Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Secretary Rogelio L. Singson witnessed yesterday (November 28, 2013) the restored road travel connection between municipalities of Tagbilaran to Maribojoc and Cortes, Bohol with the completion last November 23, 2013 of the 120 lineal meter modular steel bridge as temporary replacement to the damaged Abatan Bridge along Tagbilaran North Road. DPWH completed the Abatan Bridge emergency restoration works with the installation of the modular steel bridge including approaches at a cost of P4.1 Million funded under the Disaster Related Rehabilitation Projects in the 2013 National Budget with the supply of modular steel bridging materials costing P63.4 Million. Structural integrity of the temporary replacement bridge, completed and opened to traffic on November 23, 2013, was tested as it withstood series of aftershocks from magnitude 4.0 to 6.0 including the onslaught of Typhoons “Yolanda” and “Zoraida”. With the collapsed of two (2) of six (6) spans and one (1) of five (5) piers of the old Abatan Bridge after the devastating earthquake, the DPWH is undertaking geotechnical investigation/soil exploration for the reconstruction of the permanent bridge targeted to start in April 2014 and for completion in September 2014. After Tagbuane Bridge along Tagbilaran East Road sustained severe damages to abutments, pier and approaches, the construction of 39 lineal meter modular steel bridge as temporary replacement restored connectivity from Tagbilaran to Loay and Alburquerque, Bohol and also facilitated during the opening on November 5, 2013 the movement of people, goods, and services from Tagbilaran City to port of Jagna. Reconstruction of the permanent Tagbuane Bridge is programmed to start also in April 2014 as detailed engineering activities is anticipated to be completed by March 2014. Three (3) other major bridges along Tagbilaran North Road namely Moalong Bridge in Loon, and Tultugan and Desamparados Bridges in Calape will be opened to vehicular traffic by first week of December 2013 as installation of temporary steel bridging components are on-going with H-Pile base support installed.

ROADS AND BRIDGES DAMAGED BY CENTRAL VISAYAS QUAKE

Top 

  Several roads and bridges were damaged by the 7.2 magnitude earthquake that hit Central Visayas Region Tuesday morning, October 15, 2013. In his report to Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Secretary Rogelio L. Singson, DPWH Region 7 Director Ador G. Canlas identified the unpassable road sections in the Province of Bohol either due to massive landslide and damaged roadway such as cracks, settlement of asphalt/concrete pavement, and road slips as follows: Cortes-Balilihan-Catigbian-Macaas Road; Tagbilaran East Road Laya Baclayon; Tagbilaran North Road (Km 89.869-Km 89.950); and Loay Interior Road Loboc Section. As a result of the earthquake’s destructive force, the following bridges were damaged and unpassable: Abatan Bridge along Tagbilaran North Road, bridge collapse; Camayaan Bridge along Tagbilaran North Road in Cortes, bridge approach damage; Tultogan Bridge along Tagbilaran North Road in Calape, bridge approach collapse; Tagbuane Bridge along Tagbilaran East Road in Albur, bridge collapse; Moalong Bridge along Tagbilaran North Road, bridge collapse; Hunan Bridge along Tagbilaran North Road, settlement of bridge approach; Taguimtim, Damiao and Daet Bridges along Tagbilaran North Road in Buenavista, settlement of bridge approach; Palo, Hinawanan, Bonkokan, Banban, and Panangatan Bridges along Tagbilaran East Road, bridge approaches with cracks/settlement; and Agape Bridge along Loay Interior Road, bridge approaches with cracks. Two (2) other bridges were damaged but passable namely Suarez Bridge along Dawis Panglao Road and Salog Bridge along Tagbilaran North Road while the Panangatan River Control, a flood control structure along Tagbilaran East Road was totally damaged. Historical churches in Bohol received the earthquake brunt namely Cortes, Baclayon (collapsed bell tower), Maribooc, Loon, Dawis, and Loboc. In Cebu, there was apparently pavement cracks sustained by the Carcar-Barili Road (Sta. 45+00), Sibonga-Dumanjug Road (km 57), and occurrence of landslide at Cebu Toledo Wharf Road (km 20) but these highway are passable to vehicular traffic following the DPWH clearing operation. DPWH Region 7 is also conducting walk-through inspections in assessing possible damages at Cansaga Bay, Mandaue-Mactan, and Marcelo Fernan Bridges including Subangdaku Flyover and other structures in Cebu but these are passable to vehicular traffic. Other than the century old Basilica Minore del Santo Nino in Cebu City and those reported by DPWH Cebu 4th District Engineering Office which includes multiple cracks at Dalaguete Church and Dalaguete Provincial Highschool, no major damage has been reported to date on national buildings in the Province of Cebu.
