Hopes raised on P745-M road project

SAN PEDRO, Laguna, Philippines?The construction and completion of the Ternate-Nasugbu Road connecting the municipalities of Ternate, Cavite, and Nasugbu, Batangas, will not only benefit the two Calabarzon provinces but also the entire tourism industry, local executives here said.

The P745.2-million Ternate-Nasugbu government road project links the two coastal towns, speeding up travel on a 60-kilometer distance south of Manila.

According to the Department of Public Works and Highways, the project includes the concreting of the remaining six-kilometer rough road between Nasugbu and Ternate.

The project will also build the Sinalam, Kaysabong, Patungan and Tabe II bridges (67.6 linear meters long), another 3.858-km road, and the Kaybian Tunnel with a length of 303 linear meters and 3.858 km of road opening.

President Macapagal-Arroyo on Friday led the lowering of a time capsule to launch the concreting of the rough road.

Nasugbu Mayor Antonio Barcelon said in a phone interview, ?this project is a breakthrough in terms of infrastructure. (It is) the first thoroughfare between Batangas and Cavite.?

He said the Nasugbu-Ternate Road Project started as part of the Carmona-Ternate-Nasugbu Coastal Road in 1989, under the Philippine Agenda for Sustained Growth and Development, but was discontinued due to some legal impediments.

When completed, the two-lane road with a total length of 42.54 km will pass through the forest of Pico De Cero Mountain in Nasugbu and along agricultural and coastal areas, which, Barcelon said, would help promote beach resorts to tourists.

Ternate Vice Mayor Lamberto Bambao also expressed high hopes, saying ?we are the smallest town here in Cavite. (The road project) will be a big help to us.?

He said he believed the coastal community would benefit as the road speeds up transport of local products to markets.

?We will not have to go around Tagaytay anymore (when coming from Manila),? which, he explained, is a longer route.

The construction of the Kaybian tunnel is expected to finish in 10 months, while the rest of the road project in two years, said Barcelon. Maricar Cinco, Inquirer Southern Luzon
