Kasalukuyang ginagawa ang isang bagong stabilization structure sa Tagudin-Cervantes Rd. sa Municipality of Suyo, Ilocos Sur na pipigil sa landslide at kaakibat na road closure.

PhP40 milyon naman ang itinalaga para sa konstruksyon ng 1,400 square meters na slope area na nagsimula noong Mayo 2020.

“During rainy season, landslides often lead to road lane closure in Sitio Quinilaoen, causing inconvenience to motorists traversing the Tagudin-Cervantes Road that’s why we prioritized the installation of slope protection along this section,” pahayag ni Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Sec. Mark A. Villar.

Ang istruktura ay may dalawang slope protection designs rock netting at shotcrete para dagdag suporta at maiwasan ang soil slipping.

“Despite the pandemic, workers are working under strict compliance to health safety protocols to ensure on-time completion of this project that is expected to provide safer travel for motorists,” ani ng DPWH Secretary.
