DPWH completes improvement work on Pampanga-Bataan road
The Department of Public Works and Highways announced that it has completed the improvement of the 1.247-kilometer portion of the Angeles-Porac-Floridablanca-Dinalupihan Road.
According to a Philippine Information Agency report, Pampanga’s second district Engineer Gregorio Audea Jr. said the P29 million asphalt overlay project done at the road’s Porac Section was finished ahead of schedule.
“Our office maintains the 28.34-kilometer segment of this secondary road that connects Angeles City in Pampanga and Dinalupihan in Bataan,” he said in the report.
“It is estimated that more than seven thousand vehicles pass through here daily and traffic load is one of the reasons for the deterioration of the road pavement,” Audea was quoted as saying.
The report said the project involves the application of concrete overlay in which the appropriate thickness was determined to accommodate the additional traffic loads hence extending pavement life and provide a good driving surface for motorists.
