Cagayan de Oro Coastal Road Finally Open After 20 Years Under Pres. Duterte


Pres. Rody Duterte made some headlines anew on social media but not in the mainstream media even if it considered as a good news for all Filipinos living in Cagayan de Oro as DPWH announced the opening of the 12.77km ByPass Road after 20 years of being delayed by the previous Presidents.



Secretary Mark Villar of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) revealed on his official Facebook Page that the Cagayan de Oro Coastal Road is now open to all motorists.

The Bypass Road is expected to ease access in the provinces of Cagayan De Oro, Bukidnon, Misamis Oriental and CARAGA. The project will reduce travel cost by 30% and cut travel time by almost 50%. Now, a trip from Laguindingan Airport to the city proper is reduced to only 20 minutes.

The construction of the 12.77-kilometer Cagayan de Oro Coastal Road will serve as a bypass road starting from barangay Gusa in the eastern side all the way to the western side in Igpit, Opol in Misamis Oriental, thus connecting six barangays in the city and two barangays in Opol.

According to reports the said project has been suspended for quite a while due to unresolved RROW issues however, one of the major RROW concern in Lapasan section has been negotiated and demolished on August 25, marking the resumption of the construction activities in the said section.

While the Gusa-Agora section of the coastal road was open recently, the construction of the Agora-PPA-Corrales section is also a work in progress.

For calendar year 2017, two contracts are ongoing for the eastern side in Lapasan under Gicar Construction worth P100 million and another in Puntod section worth P200 million under Equiparco Construction.

Once project will be totally opened, it will help decongest traffic in the city proper since the heavy loaded trucks from the neighboring provinces going to the port may divert to the coastal road, thus, supporting the trade and commerce of the community.
