An improved access road recently completed by the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) now ensures safe and convenient travel to Tapal Wharf and White Beaches in Barangay Tapal, Ubay, Bohol.
Citing a report from DPWH Region 7 Director Edgar Tabacon, Secretary Mark Villar said that the road project will provide ease of access to ports and tourist destinations and eventually promote socio-economic development in the municipality of Ubay.
Besides enhancing land transport facility and easing traffic, the completed road will also safely integrate container terminal traffic within existing operations as the local port’s water and land traffic continues to grow.
Covering 3.1 kilometers of concrete pavement, scope of works also include provision of slope protection, reflectorized pavement markings and street lightings.
The road improvement project was undertaken by DPWH Bohol 2nd District Engineering Office in the amount of P10 million.
