New Pangasinan-Zambales roadline cuts travel time

Motorists from Pangasinan who want to travel to Zambales may now use as alternate route the 54-kilometer Pangasinan-Zambales roadline if they opt to avoid the circuitous route via the western town of Infanta or Mangatarem in central Pangasinan passing thru Tarlac province.

Second Pangasinan engineering district head Rodolfo "Boy" Dion however clarified that the new roadline has yet to be fully developed so that motorists will have to bear some inconvenience. "Na-open na yon pero hindi pa nalagyan ng gravel," he told the Pantongtongan Tayo radio program of the Philippine Information Agency over Radyo ng Bayan-DZMQ last Tuesday.

The Pangasinan side of the roadline is 19 kilometers long starting from the poblacion area in Mangatarem town, he said.

Once completed, motorists will save fuel and travel time, he noted.

Meanwhile, Dion said the perennially-flooded Mayombo-Caranglaan road in this city is scheduled for reconstruction this year. The project with a budget of P40 million includes drainage construction as had been done earlier to the Arellano-Bani road, which used to suffer from floods during the rainy season and during high tide.

"Sana mai-award na yong project before magka-election ban para masimulan na bago dumating ang tag-ulan," he said.

He also bared that upgrading of the Binmaley beach road is due for implementation this year with a budget of P10 million. By Danny O Sagun - PIA
