MANILA, Philippines — Typhoon Egay (international name: Doksuri) has affected six roads in certain regions in Luzon and Mindanao, the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) reported on Wednesday.

As of 6 a.m., DPWH said the strong winds and rains brought by Egat had rendered two road closures and affected lanes of four highways in Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR), Mimaropa (Mindoro Oriental and Occidental, Marinduque, Romblon, and Palawan), and Central Mindanao.


The agency said roads are currently impassable along Baguio-Bontoc Road, K0347+090 – K0347+180, Mt. Data Bauko in Mountain Province, Awang-Upi-Lebak-Kalamansig-Palimbang-Sarangani Road, K1995+450, Barangay Kidayan, Palimbang in Sultan Kudarat due to damaged cross drainage and collapsed pavement.


DPWH also said highways or roads with limited access in CAR and Mimarapa are as follows:

  • Abra-Ilocos Norte Road, K0422+898 – K0422+903, Cabaroan, Danglas, Abra (one passable lane to light vehicles due to collapsed pavement)
  • Gov. Bado Dangwa National Road, K0313+450 – K0313+470, Poblacion, Kibungan, Benguet (one passable lane to light vehicles due to soil collapse)
  • Banaue-Hungduan-Benguet Boundary Road, K0355+960 – K0355+985, Bokiawan, Hungduan; and K0380+500 – K0380+525, Abatan, Hungduan, Ifugao (one passable lane to light vehicles due to soil collapse)
  • Calapan South Road, K0182+278, Barangay Campaasan, Bulalacao, Oriental Mindoro (one passable lane to heavy vehicles due to flooded road section)

To address the issues with these roads, DPWH had dispatched its quick-response teams “to expedite emergency repair works and carry-out clearing operations so that the affected roads may be reopened and ensure access for government relief efforts.”
