Great news for motorists from way down south: The Sorsogon City Coastal Road is now open.
This new 5.52km road is considered one of the biggest projects of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) in the Bicol Region. The four-lane thoroughfare consists of a rock causeway and three bridges, connecting the Daang Maharlika junction to the barangays of Pangpang, Tugos, Cambaluga, and Talisay in Sorsogon City. The road also traverses other barangays such as Sirangan, Sampaloc, and Balogo.
DPWH senior undersecretary for Luzon operations Rafael Yabut said that the road will also provide protection to the areas around Sorsogon City from storm surges that usually pass through the region. You can check out the official announcement below:
The DPWH currently has a lot on its plate with the recent opening of major thoroughfares such as the Sorsogon City Coastal Road and the Tarlac-Pangasinan-La Union Expressway. There’s also the Subic Freeport Expressway Expansion, the BGC-Ortigas bridge, and the Estrella Pantaleon Bridge, among others. There are also other projects under the San Miguel Corporation, including the ongoing Skyway Extension Project and Skyway Stage 3, as well as the possible Pasig River Expressway.
