Earthquake: Alternative Routes

IJsselstein, Wednesday, 16 October 2013 (updated: Sunday, 20 October 2013)

Since many bridges have collapsed during the October 15 Earthquake, alternative routes are given that are still open for traffic. Note that local landslides might partially block even the roads here marked as open. Please post updates in the comments here.

Since the bridge across the Abatan River has collapsed, as well as the bridge at Loon, all traffic along the Western part of the Bohol ring-road is blocked.

Update 20 October

Status of roads and bridges taken from NDRRMC reports.
