APEC road, bridge in Laguna opens to traffic
Students and residents in Laguna can now take an alternative route going to the University of the Philippines Los Baños (UPLB) campus with the opening of a newly concrete paved highway connecting Pili Drive, Institute of Plant Breeding (IPB) Road to Gov. F.T. San Luis Road .
The APEC Road was inaugurated on November 20 by Public Works Secretary Mark Villar, U.P. President Danilo Concepcion and UPLB Chancellor Dindo Sanchez.
Spanning about about 3.8 kilometers, the APEC Road provides a direct access to and from Los Banos and Bae
“With the completion of the APEC Road, travel time from Los Banos to Bae has been reduced to 10 mins,” Villar said.
The road is seen to resolve bottleneck traffic along Calamba – Sta. Cruz – Famy Junction Road and Daang Maharlika Road.
“From the onset, we have been trying to improve access to the university from both a physical and socioeconomic point of view. It is our priority to ensure that more infrastructure are built to address the increasing infrastructure gap,” Concepcion noted.
“This is only one of the many projects included in the master plan to ensure that the university has sufficient implements to attain its full potential as a premier academic institution,” he added.
