On 26 July 2019, TIEZA COO Pocholo Paragas attended the groundbreaking ceremonies of the San Juanico Bridge Aesthetic Lighting Project, a project of DOT- TIEZA with DOT Region 8 Office and the Province of Eastern Samar. The project which was approved in 2017, will feature two types of lights – the static lights and the dynamic or dancing lights.
The project is expected to further boost tourism and economic activities in both Samar and Leyte. Through this, other tourist destinations in nearby municipalities and cities will also be highlighted such as the MacArthur Landing Memorial National Park and Sohoton Caves and Natural Bridge National Park.
