Concrete paving of road to Tondol Beach cost Php 43 million
Ever dreamed of digging your toes on white, sandy beaches this summer but are just too averse to airport horror stories and flight delays?
One white, sandy beach up north has just become ultra-accessible thanks to the efforts of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH).
Concrete paving of Poblacion-San Jose-Namagbagan-Imbo-Tondol Road has just been finished by the DPWH allowing motorists to conveniently drive right up to beautiful Tondol Beach, also known as the 'Boracay of the North', in Anda, Pangasinan.
The Department of Tourism (DOT), under its convergence program, funded the project that cost Php 43 million in total. The expense covered for the 'replacement of the deteriorated existing concrete pavement and construction of stone masonry slope protection structure along the roadside.'
Also included in the project was the construction of the access road leading to Umbrella Rocks and Abagatanen Beach.
People from Luzon may now experience white, sandy beaches without having to pay for airfare and be at the mercy of unpredictable flight delays and airport problems.
