DPWH completes bridge widening project in Ligao, Albay
The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) announced that the widening of the Tastas Bridge project in Ligao City, Albay has been completed.
DPWH Regional Office 5 Director Virgilio C. Eduarte reported to DPWH Secretary Manuel M. Bonoan that the widening of the bridge into two way traffic provides for a much safer and faster access to motorists, specifically those going to upland barangays of Ligao.
“Tastas Bridge, which is along Sta. Cruz – Pandan Road, will serve as a faster alternate route for travelers to and from Pio Duran, Albay as it traverses the Albay – Camarines Sur Diversion Road,”said Eduarte.
This bridge has a total length of 60.60 meters, a width of 7.32 meters, and a 0.76-meter shoulder for pedestrian crossing on both sides.
Implemented by the DPWH Albay 3rd District Engineering Office, the widened bridge was built in the amount of P50 million.
