Construction of the New Uguiaban Bridge

Two months after Typhoon Pablo destroyed the Uguiaban Bridge - Progress at last!   I’m pleased to report that construction work on the new bridge started this week.  See photos below:

Materials for Steelworks Delivered
Preparation Work from Cagayan de Oro Side of the Bridge

No doubt the construction work will take months.  So in the meantime, work continues to re-enforce and strengthen the temporary bridge (see below) that is being used at the moment.  Hope it holds up until the new Uguiaban Bridge is completed.
