The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) said the rehabilitation work being done on roads in Boracay is set to meet its October deadline, in time for the reopening of the island.

In a statement on Monday, Aug. 6, the agency said DPWH Secretary Mark A. Villar conducted an inspection in the island last week and found significant development in the ongoing works.

“We have started the pouring of concrete and installation of pipes along Cagban to Elizalde Compound. As of now, we are almost 40% complete,” the secretary was quoted as saying.

He added, “Now 60 percent completed, the construction of the missing gap, along the circumferential road, will facilitate travel around the famous Puka Beach.” — Denise A. Valdez
