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.

At the other end of this bridge is the town of Baungon in the province of Bukidnon.IMG_6573 IMG_6574 IMG_6575

Hopefully, in the future, the government will not wait for catastrophes to happen before improving infrastructures such as roads and bridges.
