Formal Inauguration of the Gusa-Lapasan Coastal Road Postponed to November 24

In an article from Sunstar PH, the formal inauguration of the coastal road stretching from Gusa-Lapasan has been moved from November 10 to November 24.

DPWH-Northern Mindanao spokesperson Vinah Maghinay revealed that the supposed ceremony to formally open the coastal road will be attended by Secretary Mark Villar, but was moved to accommodate Secretary Villar’s prior commitments.

Despite the changes in the schedule of the inauguration, starting this Friday the coastal road will be open to accommodate buses, trucks, and private vehicles.

Roads and Traffic Administration (RTA) overseer and Hapsay Dalan Chief, Lawyer Edgardo Uy claims that there is an advisory about the change of schedule but assures that by Friday the coastal road will be open to vehicle passage. However, Uy said that if they will get an instruction from DPWH to postpone the opening of the coastal road due to circumstances, they will definitely have to close it again.

Meanwhile, the City Government has proceeded with the clearing operations and Administrative Office of the City Housing and Urban Development Department (CHUDD), Chylie Gayla reveals that 7 out of the 13 families who were affected by the clearing operations decided to stay at the evacuation center situated in Barangay Indahag.

CHUDD is yet to find vacant house units in relocation sites to formally transfer the affected residents.

City Social Welfare and Development (CSWD), Teddy Sabug-a encourages barangay officials to help in preventing structures to be built in illegal places.



Formal inauguration for the Gusa-Lapasan coastal road will continue this November 10 to be lead by the Public Works Secretary Mark Villar.

DPWH-Northern Mindanao spokesperson, Vinah Maghinay, revealed that a dry run will commence on Friday morning to be followed by the formal ceremony at 1pm.

Maghinay reminded motorists that only buses, trucks, and private vehicles will be allowed to pass through the coastal road.

Maghinay also apologized for the confusing schedule regarding the formal inauguration.
