DPWH COMPLETES MAAYON BYPASS ROAD IN CAPIZ

By Glen S. Ramos

CAPIZ – The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) recently completed a bypass road in the municipality of Maayon in the province of Capiz.

The 1.22-kilometer Maayon Bypass Road Project now decongests traffic in the main thoroughfare of the municipalities of Maayon and Cuartero, and Barangay Bailan in Pontevedra.

With the new road, travel time from Barangay Indayagan to Barangay Poblacion Ilawod in Maayon is shortened as well, providing better access to Cuartero through the junction National Road Cuartero-Maindang-Tapulang-Maayon Road.

“Maayon Bypass Road, which is an extension of the improved project from the prior year, will also allow easier distribution of economic activities between downtown areas and new development areas along the bypass route”, Secretary Roger G. Mercado stated citing a report from DPWH Region 6 Director Tiburcio DL Canlas.

The project cost about P37.5 million. The concreting of the bypass road with 1,620-lineal meter drainage component was DPWH Capiz 1st District Engineering Office. (ai/mtvn)
