‘GREAT WALL OF BAGUIO’ BUILD IN FULL SWING – DPWH

Public Works and Highways Secretary Mark Villar announced that the construction of a 4.6-kilometer bypass road connecting Major Mane Road to Kennon Road, popularly known as the Great Wall of Baguio City, is in full swing.

“We are now implementing the Phase 4 of the Great Wall of Baguio City which will provide direct connection from Kennon Road to Loakan Airport without passing through the city proper of Baguio,” Villar announced.

“The ongoing two-lane road project has become a local tourist destination as it provides a 360-degree breathtaking view of Benguet mountain range.”

This was based on a report from Baguio City District Engineer Rene Zarate who also mentioned that the ongoing two-lane road project has become a local tourist destination as it provides a 360-degree breathtaking view of Benguet mountain range.

The project involves construction of concrete road with sidewalk and gutter as well as retaining wall to protect motorists from landslides.

“The bypass road implemented in six phases is right on track for completion in 2023.”

According to the public works chief, the bypass road implemented in six phases is right on track for completion in 2023 following the completion of 3.07 kilometers under the first three phases.

“Upon completion, the road will also provide additional safe route to EPZA, Philippine Military Academy, Balatoc, and Philex Mines aimed at reducing traffic congestion in the City of Pines,” the public works head concluded.
