The bypass road will serve as an alternate access road and additional route to and from Alabel connecting the town proper to other barangays linking them for future development and growth. This will also avoid the buildup area in the town center district including the road’s safety for commuters and allowing the traffic to flow without impeding or detracting the local traffic. This will also help reduce the congestion and is a preparation for future development and progress as Alabel is aiming for its cityhood. The said project was realized through the generosity of the town’s leading partner in development which is the Sarangani Agriculture Company Inc. (SACI).
