Sula Bridge - Albay

Sula Bridge  also called  Sula Delta Bridge  is a two-lane bridge that connects Cagraray Island to mainland Albay. It is located in Barangay Sula in Bacacay in the province of Albay,  Sula Bridge Sula Bridge details According to some sources online, 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 a bridge that would connect the Cagraray Island to the province of Albay.
