It is a sad reality in the Philippines that there are still a lot of places that don’t have proper roads; this is often expected in far-flung rural areas but actually exists even in the urban areas. More often than not, government projects taken years to even get funding, let alone be completed to the fullest.

In Maragusan, Compostela Valley, the government dug up the road for a widening project but the construction was delayed. When the rains come, the roads turned into slushy paths that are so soft the motorcycles could get easily stuck in deep mud.
