An access road leading to top tourist destinations in Aloguinsan, Cebu was recently completed to boost the province’s tourism, the Department of Public Works and Highways announced.
The newly-completed road project is the 1.38-kilometer access road within the Malolos-Barili-Kantabugon Road in the coastal area of Aloguinsan.
It leads to Hermits Cove, Bojo River, and Lunhaw Farm Resort, some of the top tourist sites in the province.
Public Works and Highways Secretary Mark Villar said the completed tourism road project is in convergence with the Department of Tourism.
“With the completion of this access road, the 40 minutes travel time from the national road to Hermits Cove has been reduced to only 15 minutes,” Villar said.
“This will not only serve tourists who want to explore Central Cebu, but also directly benefit locals with improved mobility and investment potential of their area,” the DPWH Secretary added.
The new road is a two-lane road that measures 6.10 meters in width with 1.5-meter paved shoulder, drainage canal, and traffic safety devices.
The department said the construction of the road started in February 2020 with an allocation of P50 million under 2020 General Appropriations Act.
