Siargao is a beautiful islet, and with it comes with its natural neighboring islands as well. Wouldn’t it be such an advantage to both economic and tourist sector to have these islands be connected with each other?
The government of Surigao del Norte is looking to bolster its economic development with its three-point bridge system in Siargao Island; the government agency, called ‘Department of Public Works and Highways’ (DPWH), is looking to establish this infrastructure to dispense convenient travels. In other words, that the bridge will further enhance accessibility of goods, trades, and services in the island.
This ₱434 million bridge project consists of three structures: Libertad Bridge 1, which is approximately 75.8 meters. Libertad Bridge 2 is 36.8 meters, and the third bridge: Catangnan to Cabitoonan Bridge which is approximately 348.8 meter! These bridges connect from General Luna to Catangnan, Sta. Cruz, Sta. Fe, Libertad, and Cabitoonan.
The Department of Public Works and Highways aims to make the bridge secure and stable to withstand any harsh monsoons, and all the while making it look beautiful for its island visitors. Currently there are still further development for drainage/sewer system, sidewalks, and street lights.
Along with DPWH’s proposed projects, they will be establishing a top-of-the-line sports facility that will host various sporting events; but much will be covered in the later time with more information.
