Libagon to have wider highway road

May 13 - 19, 2017

MAASIN CITY - Works to convert a major road in Southern Leyte into a four-lane highway is now up and running with the national government setting aside P235.79 million to develop a road section.

Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Southern Leyte Assistant District Engineer Allan Eway said their office will bid out on May 23 the project, which aims to widen the road in Libagon town, a portion of the highway connecting the progressive towns of Sogod and Liloan.

The P235.79 million is on top of the multi-million funds earmarked for road widening in nearby Sogod town last year under the supervision of the regional office.

Eway said the road project in Libagon is considered as a major infrastructure development in Southern Leyte, saying it could further spur economic development in the Pacific side of the province.

In 2016, the infrastructure department started the road widening activity in Southern Leyte, particularly the conversion of roads from two lanes to four lanes in Sogod.

“This year, we will focus on developing the Libagon section and we continue to
commit building a four-lane highway leading to Liloan,” Eway said. “These much improved roads will benefit both the local residents and tourists, allowing better and safer transport of people, goods, and services.’

The project will add 3.35 meters to both sides of the highway. The existing width is 6.7 meters.

Sogod, a second class town, is about 49 kilometers from Liloan Ferry Terminal
with regular trips to Surigao.(By MARK L. RIMAS)
