Public Works Secretary Mark A. Villar said that a P14.32-million road project, which covers concreting of the 2-lane scenic 645-meter road from Sitio Pendolonan in Barangay Kiazar serves as an access road and allows convenient travel to the amazing natural scenery of springs and waterfalls in the newly declared tourist destination of Mighty Cave Park in Tagoloan, Lanao del Norte.
“With the newly concreted access road, locals and tourists will now experience seamless travel, while at the same time, help boost the tourism growth and socioeconomic status of the province,” said Villar.
