North Coast Road

NCR road section washed away

Police officers from Talidig and other travelling public confirmed that the road section past Dylup plantation and before Sarang Village, has been washed away by sea. Almost half of the road was eroded.

Talidig police said the issue is an ongoing one and authorities are all too aware of it. 

Commuter Marcus Kachau said, " It's almost gone. As it is, it's very dangerous for new drivers going NCR Bogia way. Day dreamers or drunk drivers too can go off the road.”
