According to Senior Undersecretary for Luzon Operations Rafael C. Yabut’s report to Secretary Villar, the Sorsogon City Coastal Road will help decongest the heavy traffic in the main thoroughfare of Sorsogon City, as well as provide protection to the surrounding areas from storm surge especially that Bicol Region is among the most frequent path of typhoons entering the Philippine area of responsibility.
