By now, you might have already seen several pictures of netizens posing against a backdrop of a 'sea of clouds'. Located in the municipality of Dupax del Norte in Nueva Vizcaya, the booming destination has since seen its share of influx of tourists.
As more and more people make the journey towards the scenic spot, the need for a new access road heading towards Dupax del Norte is apparent. Luckily, the Deparment of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) is putting the final touches on a new road project that will help tourists and motorist get their easier.
According to DPWH Secretary Mark Villar, the Php 48.99 million tourism road project will see the completion of a 2-kilometer paved road of Junction National Road-Bitnong-Belance-Nueva Vizcaya Boundary Road. Villar also mentioned that it is now 93% complete which means it will be open to the public in due time.
“Very soon, the entire two kilometers of this road will be paved and visitors will no longer have to trek or pass bumpy narrow roads just to witness this wonderful cloud formation display in Dupax del Norte,” added Villar.
Construction of the new road project was initially started last June 2019 under the leadership of District Engineer Glenn C. Miguel of the DPWH Nueva Vizcaya Second District Engineering Office. When fully completed, the gov't agency expects that the influx of tourists using the new road will provide additional income opportunities for locals in the area.
The DPWH plans to open the new access road this year.
