For a long time, Cabula Road in Lumbia was a picture of the rural countryside … rough road, dusty, yet, it is very near the highly urbanized city of Cagayan de Oro.
Not until Sendong destroyed Cabula Bridge in 2011 that cut off the only bridge which connects the city to Baungon town in Bukidnon province. The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH-10) built a new bridge which inaugurated in March this year (LINK). Not only that, the winding Cabula Road was also improved.
As shown below, the road which connects the Cagayan de Oro-Talakag Road to Cabula Bridge which in turn connects the city to Baungon town in Bukidnon is now paved and the winding road vastly improved.
First photo shows the junction at the Cagayan de Oro-Talakag Road.
This is now the descending road which was widened.
This is the approach to the bridge.
At left is the new bridge.
Hopefully, in the future, the government will not wait for catastrophes to happen before improving infrastructures such as roads and bridges.
