Cam Norte cut off as detour bridge collapses

STA ELENA, Camarines Norte—Gov. Edgar Tallado is calling on the national government for assistance in expediting the repair of a detour bridge that collapsed here last night as typhoon Mario pummeled the province.

Said bridge, which is located in Barangay Kabuluan, this town, used to connect the provinces of Camarines Norte and Quezon.

It is used by commuters travelling from Daet to Manila, and vice versa.

Rerouting


Tallado said that while the bridge is awaiting repair, the provincial government will have a temporary footbridge constructed in two days' time.

The problem, he explained, is in transporting heavier loads of cargo.

Their solution is to advise passengers to use the longer route via the Andaya Highway, through Sipocot, and back to Camarines Norte.

The detour bridge was constructed as the major bridge was being repaired, Tallado added.


He also said that when he reached out to the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH), he was informed that the repair of the detour bridge could take two weeks or more.—BICOLSTANDARD.COM
