GENERAL LUNA, Siargao Island, Surigao del Norte – The Department of Public Works and Highways-Caraga has completed the widening of the Junction National Road-Antipolo-Tuboran-Quezon-Mabini Road on this island.

In a progress report to DPWH Secretary Manuel M. Bonoan, Regional Director Pol delos Santos said the project involved the concreting of the road shoulder and line canal.

The 1.16-kilometer project had a budget of ₱16 million and was implemented by the DPWH Surigao del Norte 1st District Engineering Office.

“The recent completion of the road-widening project will definitely ensure ease in mobility of Siargaonons and goods especially the mobility of tourists in that beautiful island,” Delos Santos added.
