DPWH 1 COMPLETES ECO-FRIENDLY SLOPE PROTECTION IN BAGUILIN, LA UNION

By Glen S. Ramos

SAN Fernando City, La Union – The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Region 1 recently completed the eco-friendly and convenient slope protection works along landslide-prone San Fernando-Bagulin Road in Barangay Bacsil, City of San Fernando, La Union, to protect motorists passing the area.

The 154 linear meters active protection system will protect and maintain the stability of the slopes, mitigating the risks of soil erosion along the San Fernando-Bagulin road section, one of the remote barangays of the city.

The installed erosion control mats were anchored with ground anchor nails and high-tensile wire mesh was used to keep rock masses in place and prevent debris from falling.

The DPWH First District Engineering Office led by District Engineer Jose G. Ginete, Jr. implemented the project. (ai/mtvn)
