MAASIN CITY – Travelers to Pintuyan up to Surigao City rejoice, tricky saddle would be a thing of the past.

Southern Leyte Engineering District (Sled) has earmarked around P50 million diversion road to avoid traversing the steep zigzag stretch (saddle) immediately before Pintuyan town.

Engr. Carlos Veloso, chief of the Sled, said over the weekly media forum aired at DYDM radio station every Wednesday, the planned diversion road will insure safe travel considering that travelers would not pass through the tricky saddle stretch.  

“The diversion road would enhance the traffic since travelers would prefer the short and safer road to and from Mindanao and Luzon via the Benit ferry terminal in San Ricardo, Southern Leyte on Panaon island,” said Veloso.

Short route

At present, travelers opt for the longer route via Liloan ferry because of the dangerous saddle point. From Liloan ferry terminal to Surigao, it would take at most four hours of sea travel in going to Surigao in Mindanao.

While at Benit terminal, which is just 38 km of good road from Liloan, it would only take 1-2 hours to Surigao Lipata ferry terminal in Surigao.

60 percent accomplishments

In another development, Veloso disclosed an aggregate 60 percent accomplishments of regular infrastructure projects implemented by Sled starting April this year amounting to P147 million.
