DPWH: Section 4 of ‘Great Wall of Leyte’ on track for completion

About 45% of the section 4 so-called “Great Wall of Leyte,” a seawall structure as part of the rehabilitation from super typhoon Yolanda, has been completed according to the Department of Public Works and Highways.

DPWH Region 8 Director Edgar B. Tabacon said the 7.8-kilometer Section 4 of the Road Heightening and Tide Embankment (RHTE) project runs through coastal barangays from Barangay 89 of Tacloban City to Palo, Leyte. The project received P2.38 billion from the General Appropriation Act of 2016.

It is the first phase of the project which will be implemented in six sections or segments.

“The project implementation is on track and we are working on the road-right-of-way (RROW) issues to speed up construction activities,” said Tabacon.

“We are still and are always open for dialogue to address issues arising even if the project is already in full swing, clarified Tabacon.

The P7.95-billion RHTE is a 27.3 kilometer stretch, four-meter high seawall structure that will be implemented by DPWH in six phases until 2020.
