3.2-km road widening to boost tourism in Bataan

Pilar, Bataan—The Department of Public Works and Highways expressed optimism on the future of tourism industry in Bataan with the timely completion of the widening of the  3.2-kilometer Gov. JJ Linao Road linking three coastal villages here.

“The entire 3.2 kilometer stretch of Gov. JJ Linao Road which used to be a narrow 2-lane road now has four lanes and offers unobstructed scenic driving experience to motorists in this area of the Bataan,” said Public Works Secretary Mark Villar during a recent site inspection of the project.

The P96.5 million project connecting Barangays Nagwaling and Diwa for Segment 1 and portion of Bgy. Liyang for Segment 2, under the Bataan District 2, supports the economic and tourism development programs of the province.

Villar said the Gov JJ Linao Road will give better mobility for travelers and tourists visiting the province offering nature and agro-industrial experiences. 

DPWH Undersecretary for Luzon Operations Rafael Yabut explained the road serves as the main thoroughfare coming from Balanga going to tourist destinations in the coastal part of Bagac town.

Bataan is known for its beautiful beaches and resorts and its rich cultural and historical places to visit.

Apart from its natural and man-made wonders, Bataan history is what truly makes it a must visit place in Central Luzon.

The province tourism office offers several sites of World War 2 monuments and shrines, the main highlight of heroism and humanity’s triumph over war.

The province has 14 top destinations for tourists and visitors to explore.
