Four tourists destinations now more accessible

The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has completed four new roads leading to three tourism sites in Pangasinan and one in Ilocos Norte.

According to DPWH Region 1 Director Melanio Briosos, the completed roads in Pangasinan were the Bangrin Mangrove Road in Bani, Bobonot-Tambobong Road in Dasol and Poblacion-Patar Road in Bolinao.

“Other than leading to Bangrin Marine Protected Area, the Bangrin Mangrove Road also serves as farm-to-market road for the farmers and fisher folks living in Barangays San Jose, Luac and Aporao while Bobonot-Tambobong Road and Poblacion-Patar Road facilitate access to attractive beaches,” DPWH said in a statement.

On the other hand, the DPWH says different waterfalls and trails will now be accesible through the Pancian-Pagudpud-Adams Road. With the said road, the DPWH expects that it will boost the ecotourism potential of Adams, Ilocos Norte.
