A ROAD network linking Albay to Donsol, Sorsogon, will be built soon after it was named one of six road projects assured of financing from a grant from the US government, an official said yesterday.

The P815-million Guinobatan-Jovellar-Donsol road, which will link to the Maharlika Highway, would serve as the main road to Donsol, the town famous for its whale sharks, Albay Gov. Joey Salceda said.

The road would also boost tourism in Bicol because almost 80 percent of the tourists visiting the region were there to see the whale sharks, Salceda said.

The project will consist of 26.90 kilometers of concrete road and five bridges. It is expected to complement the proposed Southern Luzon International Airport in Alobo, Daraga, in Albay.
