Cagayan Soon to Have Eastern Seaboard Highway

The Cagayan Valley Region will soon have its Eastern Seaboard Highway which involves the construction of road openings and bridges from Santa Ana, Cagayan to Casiguran, Aurora, stretching 335 kilometers of roads and four kilometers of bridges.

During the joint Regional Development Council (RDC) and Regional Peace and Order Council (RPOC) meeting held in Cauayan City, Isabela on  June 19, Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Region 2 assistant regional director Alexander D. Nola said the proposed Luzon Eastern Seaboard Master Plan is currently in the DPWH’s pipeline for technical studies.

The DPWH official said the Cagayan Valley Eastern Seaboard Highway is part of the Luzon Eastern Seaboard Master Plan that will enhance access to the relatively isolated part of the region, particularly the coastal municipalities of Isabela and Cagayan provinces.

It will also open up new economic opportunities such as, but not limited to, tourism, improve the movement of goods, people and delivery of public services.

Nola said the Eastern Seaboard Highway will guide future growth and development in the coastal areas of Regions 2, 3 and 4-A.
