Philippines : Construction of Aganan Bridge in full blast.

Movement of goods and services in the central part of Iloilo Province will soon be more faster, safer and convenient when the concrete bridge connecting the towns of Alimodian and Maasin is completed.

The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Regional Office 6 is hastening works under Phase II of Aganan Bridge along Mandurriao-San Miguel-Alimodian-Maasin-Cabatuan Road.

The project in the amount of P100 million involves completion of the 2-lane, 6-span pre-stressed concrete girder bridge on bored pile foundation with a length of 180.80 lineal meters, including provision of sidewalk and railings, and construction of slope protection and bridge approaches.

In his report, DPWH Region 6 Assistant Director Jose Al V. Fruto said that with the present full swing construction of bridge approach in both sides, as well as slope protection works, Aganan Bridge is expected for completion by the second quarter of 2018.

The bridge will provide an effective and efficient all-weather transportation of goods and services between Maasin and Alimodian and neighboring other towns.

"People of the towns of Alimodian and Maasin who used to wait for the high water to subside during rainy days in order to cross the river and facilitate the delivery of their products will soon benefit with this bridge project," added Fruto.

Other than the construction of the bridge, the DPWH has upgraded from gravel to concrete paved the road in Maasin leading to Aganan Bridge for a more comfortable and economical travel.
