Roads are a prime factor in the transportation and movement of people and goods from one place to another. It hastens mobility which greatly contributes to the economic growth of the country.

As a Department geared towards progress with a desire for a more developed society, the DPWH Davao Oriental First District Engineering Office implemented the Improvement/Widening of (Nat’l Road) Surigao Del Sur Boundary – Davao Oriental Coastal Road. The project was undertaken by Hexamindz Corporation and was completed on November 5, 2016.

The widening is meant to improve road safety and promote the socio-economic activities of the people of the nearby towns and provinces. It serves as a link between the Provinces of Surigao del Sur and Davao Oriental and will provide the public an easier and more convenient way of travel. With this development, a bigger opportunity is also being given to the people in improving their quality of life.

Providing better access to markets, better job opportunities, and basic services such as health and education will also be of great help to the people and to the economy.
