ANGELES CITY — The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) completed improvements along two segments of the Angeles City Section of the Manila North Road, costing P202.47 million.
DPWH Pampanga 3rd District Engineer Arnold Ocampo disclosed that the first segment involved a 1.85-kilometer asphalt overlay on the six-lane road from barangay Sto. Domingo to barangay Sto. Cristo.
Moreover, the second segment consisted of a 1.35-kilometer asphalt resurfacing on the road’s four-lane layout from barangay Sto. Domingo to barangay Sto. Rosario.
A notable aspect of the preventative maintenance project is the integration of solar-powered studs along the road, installed by DPWH Regional Office III, which illuminate at night.
“It guides motorists and enhances visibility that contribute significantly to road safety, particularly in low-light conditions,” Ocampo shared.
The project likewise involved the application of thermoplastic pavement markings on road surface that also improve visibility, especially during adverse weather.
