MANILA, Philippines – The six-kilometer Lopez Bypass road project in Quezon province is now open to vehicular traffic, the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) said on Friday.

DPWH Secretary Mark Villar led the opening of the road with a ceremonial drive through with this team.

He said the opening of the new bypass road in the fourth congressional district of Quezon will ease the congestion of vehicles along the busy Manila South Road-Daang Maharlika Highway.

It is also expected to make the travel quicker and safer for people coming from the southern part of Quezon province towards the Bicol region.

The construction of the P718 million road project began in 2015. It traverses the barangays of Del Pilar, San Lorenzo, a portion of Peñafrancia, Danlagan, Bacungan, and Canda Ilaya.

Villar believes the project’s completion will fast-track delivery of government and private-led services, as well as gear improvement on residents’ living standards.

“Improving access in major roadways is a key factor in the economic growth of our country,” he said in a statement.

To provide maximum road service, the DPWH said it is undertaking construction works to widen to six the current four lanes in the 2.13-kilometer segment of the bypass road.
