The Department of Public Works and Highways of the Philippines (DPWH) has begun construction of a new four-lane flyover in Pilar, Bataan.
The sub-structure works are being undertaken for construction of Ala-Uli Steel Flyover in Barangay Ala Uli, Pilar,
This flyover is expected to ease traffic congestion at the intersection of Gov. J.J. Linao National Road and Roman Superhighway.
The project is part of the Mega Bridges for Urban and Rural Development Project (MBURDP).
It includes building and installation of 17.3m wide and 607.750m long flyover, with 80m transition road on both sides.
The 18-month construction project will enhance the transport of goods and local products.
