The 2nd District Engineering Office (DEO) of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has completed the paving of the Culandanum-Panalingaan Cross Country Road in the town of Bataraza, southern Palawan.

The regional office of the department said Monday, July 1, that the project aims to alleviate the recurring issues during the rainy season, such as impassable and muddy roads.

Based on Palawan 2nd District Engineer Noel Fuentebella’s report to DPWH Mimaropa Regional Director Gerald Pacanan, the project involved the construction of a 6.70-meter-wide Portland Cement Concrete Pavement (PCCP) with a thickness of 280 millimeters.

The project’s total length is 5.072 lane kilometers. It comprises erosion control measures such as concrete shoulders, reinforced concrete box and pipe culverts, reinforced concrete lined canals, and grouted riprap.

This project aims to address the need for better road conditions to facilitate improved accessibility and connectivity, thereby promoting economic growth and improving the quality of life for local communities.

By converting unpaved segments into durable paved roads, the project supports the local government’s efforts to promote regional development and sustainability.
