DPWH completes 1.2-kilometer access road leading to Mt. Apo jump off point

Tourists can now enjoy the Philippines' tallest mountain, Mt. Apo, more conveniently as the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) recently completed the concreting of a 1.2-kilometer access road located in Brgy. Eman, Bansalan, Davao del Sur.

The town of Bansalan sits in the foothills of Mt. Apo, and is also home to the picturesque Bulatakay Falls, and the Lao Integrated Organic Farm. The road project, which costs P28.5-million pesos, involved the concreting of the 6.7-meter wide, 2-lane road with drainage, cross drains, slope protection, metal guardrails and pavement-leveled studs along the access road to ensure road safety and prolong the lifespan of the newly-paved road.

This newly-paved road not only gives easier access to Mt. Apo's jump-off point and nearby tourist attractions, but will also link to the Davao-Cotabato Road and Bansalan-Cotabato Road which will consequently improve the lives of the people living in the area.
