Heading to Tagaytay over the holidays? There's a newly-opened bridge that will lead you to the city's popular tourist destinations faster and easier.

Yesterday, the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) opened the Kaykulot Bridge which connects with the Tagaytay-Calamba Road to Sta. Rosa-Tagaytay Road in Cavite. The opening ceremony was led by DPWH Secretary Mark Villar, along with other key members from the gov't agency, and local government officials.

According to Villar, the 90-linear meter bridge will serve as a key component of the Kaykulot Road. It will provide an alternate route for motorists who want to have easier access heading to the popular tourist destinations like Tagaytay Picnic Grove, and People's Park In The Sky. The bridge was built with a budget of PhP 65.7 million, and will benefit an estimated 2,000 motorists daily, added Villar.

With better accessibility, the new bridge will help Tagaytay City gear up for more visitors as the holidays draw nearer. It will also help bring product market opportunities for communities in order to boost the local economy. Tagaytay is one of the biggest producers of pineapple in Luzon.

The new bridge is located right before Bahay Pastulan Store by the Good Shepherd Sisters along the busy Sta. Rosa-Tagaytay Road.
