DPWH builds hanging footbridge in Davao Oriental

MANILA -- The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has completed the construction of a hanging footbridge worth PHP2.96 million in Davao Oriental.

In a statement, DPWH Region 11 Director Allan Borromeo said the Limot Footbridge was completed by the DPWH Davao Oriental First District Engineering Office within the span of three months.

The project is a 70-lineal meter footbridge at Barangay Limot in the municipality of Tarragona. The area is usually isolated when river water is at high level reaching the dilapidated old footbridge.

Borromeo added that the new footbridge was built longer and in higher elevation than the previous structure.

The residents are now assured that they can still cross the river during rainy season with the newly-completed hanging footbridge. (PNA)
