The Department of Public Works and Highways said Wednesday said it will soon launch the construction of the P3.5-billion causeway project in Tacloban City to provide both local and foreign tourists a faster and safer travel experience in the capital city of Leyte province.
The Tacloban City Causeway Project involves the construction of a four-lane road embankment measuring 2.56 kilometers, a bridge spanning 180 meters, with the provision of a separate bike lane, installation of concrete canals, sidewalks and wave deflectors on both sides.
It is expected to offer an improved travel experience that will cater to motorists opting for a scenic drive and pedestrians who prefer walking, running and biking.
The project will be constructed over Cancabato Bay, with alignment starting at Magsaysay Boulevard, connecting Tacloban City Hall and Kataisan point of the Daniel Z. Romualdez Airport in Barangay San Jose to offer an alternate route for motorists coming from the city proper going to the province’s main gateway. Darwin G. Amojelar
