DPWH Working on the Last 3 Phases of the Multi-Million Access Road to Zamboanga City's Nancy Falls

The Department of Public Works and Highways under the leadership of Secretary Mark Villar reported that regional office of the DPWH in Region IX or Zamboanga Region is now working in the last three phases of the multi-million access road project to Zamboanga City's Nancy Falls.


According to DPWH Region IX Director Jorge U. Sebastian Jr., the road upgrading projects involves the paving of a total of 17.3 kilometers of Junction National Highway - Ayala La Paz Road in Barangay La Paz, with a total budget allocation of P650-million under the Tourism Road Infrastructure Program (TRIP) of the DPWH in convergence with the Department of Tourism (DOT).



The forested area of La Paz is dubbed by many travelers and residents as Zamboanga's "Little Baguio" is now considered as a place where people find relaxation due to its cold weather and scenic views.

In an official report to the DPWH Main Office in Manila, Regional Director Sebastian was quoted as saying "This improved road will spur livelihood opportunities for locals as it is seen to facilitate better transportation, hence promote tourism in the area," Sebastian said.

The multi-year project has already completed upgrading a total of 6.16 kilometers of road while an additional of 2.7 kilometers will be finished before 2018 ends. The whole 17.3-kilometer stretch of road is expected to be fully accessible by 2019.

Prior to the road paving, people use habal-habal in traversing rough and often muddy road sections just to get to Zamboanga’s famous Nancy Falls, flower gardens, vegetable farms, and wildlife attractions.
