P160-M Bataan infra projects completed

ORANI, Bataan - A total of P160 million worth of infrastructure projects, including asphalt overlay works along Roman Expressway, have been completed in Bataan, the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) reported yesterday.

DPWH 1st District Engineer Wilfredo S. Mallari said widening of the Roman Expressway from Layac all the way to Mariveles in the South and also Dinalupihan going to Olongapo City has made Bataan more accessible to Manila, Clark in Pampanga, and Subic in Zambales.
In addition, the ongoing widening and re-blocking of large parts of the Roman highway is complemented by the fast-tracking of asphalt overlaying in the DPWH 2nd District, led by Engr. Medel Chua, said Mallari.

Due to these major road improvements, travel time from the entrance of Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEx) in Palihan to Subic Bay is now only about 12 minutes, while the road trip to Clark in Angeles City has been cut to only 25 minutes, he said.
