Apalit bypass road partially opened to motorists
A portion of the new four-lane, 3.3-kilometer bypass road spanning Barangays Balucuc and Tabuyuc in Apalit town in Pampanga is now open to motorists, according to the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH).
Pampanga first district engineer Almer Miranda said the construction of the P80.95 million road project that began in March was opened to motorists in August this year.
“There are still civil works that need to be done, but motorists can now use the bypass road since we have finished the concreting of its entire stretch. We aim to complete all construction activities next month,” he said in a Philippine Information Agency report.
The report said Tabuyuc and Balucuc are adjacent but requires travel time of more than 40 minutes via Kapalangan Road or by going around the towns of Pulilan and Calumpit in Bulacan.
“Travel will be a lot faster and more convenient for residents and motorists once we open this bypass road. Improving road connectivity is one way to boost local economies in the different parts of the province,” Miranda said.
“This new Apalit Bypass Road will pave the way for the development not only of the two barangays but also of neighboring communities,” he said.
