At long last there's good news for the Talakagnons!  The new Uguiaban Bridge was officially opened today.  This was built to replace the old bridge that got washed away by Typhoon Pablo in December 2012.  We have been waiting for this much needed infrastructure for 18 months.  This is  a huge relief to our local businessmen and farmers, and so with companies like Del Monte, Dole, SoBros Paper & Steel Mill, and Loggers.

We can only hope and pray that this new bridge will stand strong against the forces of nature and last longer than the last one.

Whilst we appreciate that the new Uguiaban Bridge is now open for crossing, there's still more work on the barriers, bases and finishing touches that need to be done, as you can see on the photos below.
