Negros City’s agritourism is boosted by the P295-M access route.
With the conclusion of the final phase of access road renovation worth PHP34 million, stakeholders in agritourism in Talisay City, Negros Occidental, which borders this capital city to the north, are receiving a boost.
The Department of Public Works and Highways-Western Visayas is implementing a multi-year initiative with a budget of PHP295 million from 2018 to 2022.
With funds from the 2022 DPWH Department of Tourism Convergence and Special Support Program, the First District Engineering Office has constructed the 1.17-kilometer, two-lane concrete road as of Wednesday, completing the 13.02-kilometer road stretch.
Nerie Bueno, the regional director of DPWH 6 (Western Visayas), stated in a statement that the access road’s whole length had been improved, giving both locals and visitors easier, faster, and safer transit access to Talisay City’s many tourism attractions.
The Campuestohan Highland Resort, the neighboring Bantug Lake Ranch, and the University of St. La Salle Eco Park are all well-known tourist destinations in the region, which are located at the border of Talisay and Bacolod.
The PHP295 million road reconstruction activity includes the barangays of Dos Hermanas, San Fernando, and Concepcion in Talisay City as well as the PHP50 million 1.58 kilometer concrete road finished in 2018, PHP40 million 1.6 kilometers concrete pavement finished in 2019, PHP66 million 2.64 kilometers concrete road finished in 2020, and PHP105 million 3.8 kilometers concrete pavement finished in 2021, a portion of which was handled by the DPWH-6 regional office.
The access road also crosses a section of the Bacolod-Negros Occidental Economic Highway that is still under development and will eventually shorten the distance between Talisay City proper and the upland towns, according to Bueno.
Road improvement is “extremely vital” for Negros Occidental, the country’s main sugar-producing province, in order to make it simpler and faster to transport sugarcane and other agricultural products.
