Monday, August 11, 2014

Roadwork is currently ongoing to pave the road leading to one hotspot destination in Caraga-Enchanted River.

The Department of Public Works and Highways – Surigao del Sur 2nd District Engineering Office (DPWH- SDS 2nd DEO) is implementing a total of Php41,965,212 million to pave 2.120 km of the national road junction Dugmanon- Enchanted River- Baculin road in Hinatuan, Surigao del Sur.

DPWH-SDS 2nd District Engineer Euglogio D. Milla said “concreting this section is a priority project of DPWH as influx of tourist going to the famed Enchanted River has been increasing.”

As tourism greatly affects the socio-economic activities in the area, road improvements are necessary to cater to the increasing volume of traffic, he said.

From the national highway to Barangay Baculin this road stretches to 15km. Currently, DPWH has concreted 2.064 km which project was completed in 2013, also implemented by DPWH-SDS 2nd DEO.

As part of 2015 program, DPWH- 13 Regional Office proposed to concrete another 7 kilometers of this road with programmed amount of Php140,000,000 million.
