Road improvement projects implemented by the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) will boost tourism in destinations in Dingalan city, Aurora province, officials said.

The road concreting projects in the villages of Ibona, Matawe and Paltic, all located in the town of Dingalan, fall under the convergence program of the DPWH and the Department of Tourism.
Aurora representative Rommel Angara, in a statement on Tuesday, cited national government efforts to improve road connectivity in the tourism hotspots of Dingalan, home to Matawe beach and rock formations, Paltic and Dingalan Lighthouse, Laktas Falls and Abungan Falls.

The national government has allocated some 29.46 million pesos for three road concreting projects, according to Angara.

Of the total funds, about P15.20 million has been allocated for the concreting of an 800 linear meter road at Barangay Ibona and is expected to be completed within 137 calendar days.

The concreting of the 380 linear meter road at Barangay Matawe worth 9.5 million pesos will be completed after 95 calendar days, and the 4.75 million peso project at Barangay Paltic is expected to be completed after 46 calendar days .

District Engineer Roderick Andal said DPWH’s infrastructure investments in Aurora have allowed tourists to visit the province’s remote tourist spots.

“Tourism plays an important role in Aurora’s economy and our agency has persisted in carrying out various infrastructure development projects that will help ease the burden of travel to tourist sites,” he said. .
