New road positive for Leyte

Tacloban City, Leyte - The completion of the Albuera-Burauen road is expected to perk economic development in two districts in Leyte which are linked by said new road being constructed with funds released by the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH).

Albuera Municipal Development Officer Mario Cubi said the road will provide easy access for transporting farm goods from Albuera to other neighboring towns in Leyte's second district and should result in the increase of farmers' income.

The Albuera-Burauen road is also envisioned to cut road travel by some 18 kilometers from Eastern Visayas region's capital of Tacloban, to Ormoc City, which is a major gateway to Central Visayas.
The existing distance between Tacloban to Ormoc is 107 kilometers and travelers are benefited by going through the Albuera-Burauen road which cuts travel time between the two cities from two hours to an hour and a half.

Completion of the new road is also expected to result in an improvement of the peace and order situation in the area which is reportedly still under influence of the left-leaning rebel New People's Army (NPA).
