President Aquino inaugurates widened Pili Diversion Road in Camarines Sur
 

(PILI, Camarines Sur) President Benigno S. Aquino III inaugurated here Friday the P66.32-million expanded Pili Diversion Road that aims to ease the daily trip of more than 5,000 motorists.

The road-widening project, which began in March 2014 and was completed last month, stretches to nearly four kilometers (km) with two more lanes added, cutting the travel time of vehicles plying it by more than half.

In his speech, President Aquino said this road offers an alternative route for motorists coming from Albay, Sorsogon and other parts of the Partido region in Camarines Sur, who wish to skip Poblacion and go straight to the town of Pili.

“Dahil sa proyekto, nabawasan nang halos 6,000 sasakyan ang bumabagtas sa Pili-Poblacion Road. Kita ninyo naman ang ginhawang dulot ng mabuting pamamahala,” he told the townspeople here.

Under President Aquino’s watch, the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) allotted P15.96 billion to fund infrastructure projects in Camarines Sur, tripling its previous budget of P4.73 billion during the previous administration.
