A Footbridge in Tuburan

After a quick stop in the Tuburan for some snacks, I was back on the road. It was getting dark really fast and Toledo City was still miles away. And from Toledo, it would take another hour to reach the City of Naga. That means that I’d arrive home at around 8 in the evening. So, I had to maintain a speed of at least 60 kph and had to strongly resist any temptation to stop at awesome spots I saw along the way.

However, yeah, I gave in, because I DID stop at one spot somewhere in Tuburan. But seriously, who wouldn’t want to investigate if it looks as good as this?





In Barangay Fortaliza in the town of Tuburan, there is this community sub-project that caught my attention.


The Barangay Fortaliza Footbridge is a 0.22km concrete footbridge that cuts through a hectares-wide road-side field in Tuburan.


If I’m not mistaken, the field can get flooded during the rainy months. I can only imagine how difficult it must be for residents to get to their homes on the other side of the field.


But thanks to this new footbridge, the residents can now safely cross the field at any time of the day. Without getting muddy or wet, too!


The footbridge has lamps which light up at night. And right in the middle of the foot bridge is an area (with benches) where people can take a rest. How cool is that?


Here is a view from the foot bridge of the vast field below. Imagine crossing this field during the rainy season, after dark, while carrying a lot of stuff. 😀

Here is the Fortaliza footbridge as seen from the main road. Looks pretty, right?
