Ponferrada averred that even though if the tourists visiting Sohoton prefers most going to the area through the river with motorboats, because they enjoy river cruising and the many wonderful features along the way, it is better if there will be an alternative route.

The mayor said early part of this year former President Gloria Arroyo ordered the road completion and from then on the work was in progress however slow that motorists are now complaining.

Ponferrada also disclosed that the road completion project is part of the P1.14 billion rehabilitation of Basey-Maydolong road comprised of 14 road networks. It has been placed under priority programs of the previous administration by the Department of Public Works and Highways, he added.
