Sula Bridge details

The history of the Sula Bridge could be traced back to the 1950s when former senator Tecla San Andres-Ziga originally visualized and initiated building this bridge during her time. This was in hopes of boosting the economy and tourism of the island of Cagraray. Sadly, the construction of the Sula Bridge did not materialize during her term and was shelved for several decades.

In the 1980s, Representative Edcel Lagman also pushed for its construction but like that of Senator San Andres-Ziga's plan, it was also shelved for decades. Representative Lagman did not give up though and finally, Sula Bridge was finally built during the time of President Arroyo and was dubbed "Tulay ng Pangulo sa Kaunlaran Project". 




The construction of the Sula Bridge costs around 150 million pesos. The bridge was finally opened to the public in 2013.

At present, the two-lane modular steel bridge with steel decking not only serves its purpose to connect Cagraray Island to the mainland of Albay to boost its economy and tourism, but it also in itself became a tourist destination. Hundreds of tourists, particularly bikers, would usually make this bridge as a stopover destination of pitstop during their rides to Cagraray. 

We got to visit Sula Bridge during the 2nd day of our Bicol Road Trip 2021. Although we got to stay briefly, it was totally worth it.

Why visit Sula Bridge?

As mentioned, Sula Bridge not only serves its purpose of connecting the island of Cagraray with mainland Albay, it also serves as a tourist spot in itself.
