Public Works and Highways Secretary Mark Villar said the recent completion of various road improvements along Roman Expressway will further boost the economic potential of Bataan Province.
Citing DPWH Bataan 2nd District Engineering Office’s report, Villar said that Roman Expressway – a national arterial road traversing 10 Bataan towns – was the recent recipient of road widening and asphalting projects.
”Roman Expressway is a national arterial road traversing 10 Bataan towns.”
“We recently completed the widening of its 2.12-kilometer portion in Pilar town amounting to P69.7 million, which improves the transport of goods and local products in the area by providing continuous flow of traffic with lesser build-up,” the public works chief said.

The portion was widened from four lanes to six lanes.
Another completed project is a P36.16-million maintenance work along the 919-linear-meter portion of Roman Expressway in Balanga City which covers road asphalt overlaying for a smoother travel.
“Roman Expressway caters to all types of vehicles from motorcycles to large truck trailers on a daily basis, making it one of the province’s busiest and most vital roads. Hence, its improvement and maintenance are among DPWH priority projects to guarantee its optimal use,” the public works chief stressed.
