DPWH Completes Tastas Bridge Widening Project in Ligao City, Albay

The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has completed the widening of the Tastas Bridge that has improved mobility in Ligao City, Albay.

DPWH Regional Office 5 Director Virgilio C. Eduarte reported to DPWH Secretary Manuel M. Bonoan that the widening of the bridge into two (2) way traffic provides for a much safer and faster access to motorists specifically those going to upland barangays of Ligao.

“Tastas Bridge, which is along Sta. Cruz – Pandan Road, will serve as a faster alternate route for travelers to and from Pio Duran, Albay as it traverses the Albay – Camarines Sur Diversion Road,” added DPWH Regional Office 5 Director Eduarte.

This bridge has a total length of 60.60 meters, a width of 7.32 meters, and a 0.76-meter shoulder for pedestrian crossing on both sides.

Implemented by the DPWH Albay 3rd District Engineering Office, the widened bridge was built in the amount of ₱50 million.
