THE PROPOSED Laguna Lakeshore Road Network (LLRN), with the first phase stretching between the cities of Taguig in the capital and Calamba in Laguna, will be up for public discussion on June 17 as part of the environmental impact assessment.
THE Department of Environment and Natural Resources will host the discussions that will be held online.
Project proponent Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) will present the plan for the 37-kilometer highway, which will have eight interchanges in Lower Bicutan, Sucat, Alabang, Tunasan, San Pedro/Biñan, Santa Rosa, Cabuyao and Calamba.
“The overarching intent of the project is to provide a safer and faster alternative to the motorists traveling south (or) north to vitalize the economies for the surrounding areas including Laguna, Rizal, Quezon and Batangas,” DPWH said.
The LLRN’s second phase will cut through an eastern route. — Angelica Y. Yang
