More tourists seen going to Poro Point with new projects
MANILA – The Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) is looking to boost tourism and improve access to the Poro Point Freeport Zone in San Fernando City, La Union with three road projects.
The BCDA is setting aside nearly P76 million in revenues to construct a road leading to the Poro Point lighthouse, repair the road leading to the Poro Point Management Corporation (PPMC), and upgrade the San Fernando Airport Road.
The PPMC is hoping that the projects will help get rid of flooding in the free port.
It expects all road works to be done by February 2014 in time for the Sillag Festival, which will be held in the province for the third year in a row.
La Union Vice Governor Aureo Nisce has expressed his support for the road projects.
"I hope to continue this good partnership with PPMC to further develop our province,” he said in a statement.
