New Iloilo Airport Secondary Access Road
September 8, 2009 – The proposed secondary access road to the New Iloilo Airport in Cabatuan will commence construction after its groundbreaking ceremony today. The secondary access road is a 3.2 kilometer-stretch from the national highway in Barangay Tabucan to the airport. It will be a two-lane junction with 5.5 meter width asphalt concrete pavement.
The P124 million secondary access road project which is expected to bolster the regional economy will serve as an alternative road to the new Iloilo Airport Complex for passengers coming from the northern and central part of Iloilo, the provinces of Antique, Capiz and Aklan.
Accordingly, the project covers an area of 64,944 sq.m., traversing the five barangays of Cabatuan, namely, Tabucan, Tiring, Talanghauan, Ga-ub, and Duyan-duyan.
Upon completion, the new road network will help reduce traffic at the main access road during peak hours, and will likewise save at least 15 minutes travel time or kilometers for airport passengers from the north. The first access road going to the airport was from southern Iloilo traversing the municipalities of San Miguel and Oton
