The flagship project of the convergence and special support program of 10 million pesos under the agency’s multi-year tourist road infrastructure program (TRIP) financed by the general appropriations law of 2022 covers the concrete paving of a two-lane road with a shoulder and the construction of a concrete retaining wall as a slope protection structure.
