Pilar Road

July 12, 2019

CALBAYOG CITY – The roads from barangays Oquendo to Bayo which is also known as the Pilar Road are rehabilitated and improved by the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH).

These ten (10) projects under the Local Infrastructure Program is appropriated with a total of P200 million. The road covered by the projects has a total net length of 18.351 lane kilometres.

The existing road is already damaged and uneven which is unsafe for the motorists and vehicles going to and from Calbayog City via that road. This is beneficial to the farmers living in that area since the roads are now even and widened from 4 meters to 6 meters. They can now transport their produce without the hustle of a rough road which creates danger to someone’s safety.

DPWH is not only creating roads but also maintaining their statuesque form as well as keeping up with the changes around it like widening of roads (primary and secondary).
