Good news for motorists from the southern province of Cebu: The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has completed paving a new road leading to the coastal areas in the town of Aloguinsan.
The agency started the project back in February 2020. Now, it has released photos of the new 1.38km, two-lane road that leads to several tourist destinations in the area. This is part of the DPWH’s tourism road project in partnership with the Department of Tourism, and it involves the construction of the Barangay Malolos-Barili-Kantabugon Road, which also provides access to Hermits Cove, Bojo River, and Lunhaw Farm Resort. This newly paved stretch spans over six meters wide with a 1.5-meter paved shoulder, a drainage canal, and traffic safety devices.
“This will not only serve tourists who want to explore Central Cebu, but also directly benefit locals with improved mobility and investment potential of their area,” said DPWH secretary Mark Villar.

Hopefully, this will help boost tourism in the area, especially since the entire nation is still reeling from the effects of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. What say you, Cebuanos? Looking forward to using this new highway?
