Rockfall Protection System in Tagaytay-Talisay Road
Nestled in the province of Cavite, Tagaytay is a sought-after holiday destination, celebrated for its mild climate and stunning panoramic views. However, amidst this picturesque setting, several parts of the Tagaytay-Talisay Road have garnered notoriety for their hazardous conditions. This road, situated just a few kilometers away from the majestic Taal Volcano, presents numerous challenges to motorists, including steep inclines, sharp curves, hairpin turns, blind corners, and potential hazards such as landslides, rockfalls, and erosion.
To ensure safety, the Department of Public Works and Highways, are taking action to address these risks. Measures are being implemented to safeguard certain areas of the road, ensuring the safety of motorists. These initiatives aim to minimize the occurrence of landslides, rockfalls, and erosion, making the road more secure for travelers.
