Tarlac’s new P238-M bridge creates an efficient transportation system.
The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) officially opened a PHP237.97 million bridge project on Friday that will give commuters and drivers in Tarlac province a better and speedier road network.
The municipalities of Ramos, Paniqui, and Camiling are now connected by a smooth transportation network, according to DPWH 3 (Central Luzon) Director Roseller A. Tolentino.
“Travel times between the communities connected by this bridge will be shortened, and traffic flow in the area is anticipated to significantly improve. Drivers can now utilize the recently built parallel bridge to travel to Ramos, while those traveling to Camiling and San Clemente can use the current Cojuangco Bridge, according to a statement from Tolentino.
The 2020 project involves replacing the two-lane Cojuangco Bridge and building a parallel bridge with 186.50 linear meters of two lanes along Paniqui-Camiling-Wawa Road in Paniqui town.
Additionally, it entails the building of concrete slope protection on both of the parallel bridge’s abutments as well as the installation of road safety elements such railings, curbs, and gutters as well as thermoplastic pavement markings.
The DPWH is giving priority to widening the current permanent bridges along the nation’s main thoroughfares, according to DPWH-3 Assistant Regional Director Denise Maria M. Ayag, in order to offer commuters and drivers a safe and dependable national road system.
“There are concerns over the structural capacity of bridges that do not meet current standards in terms of safety, load capacity, and serviceability, prompting the DPWH to implement measures that will strengthen these public structures, ensuring the unhindered movement of goods, people, and government services,” she said.
Ayag and Tarlac Representative Jaime Eduardo Marc D. Cojuangco were two among the dignitaries that oversaw the start of the lengthy project.
Mayor of Paniqui Leonardo Roxas, Vice Mayor Aida Bien Roxas, Tarlac’s first district engineer Neil Farala, Assistant Chief of the Regional Construction Division Jayson Jauco, and other DPWH representatives were also in attendance.
