The Philippine Ports Authority (PPA) port management office (PMO) of Batangas, is strongly committed to provide reliable and responsive services in ports and sustains development of communities and the environment as well as answer to the needs of the locality; thus, it constructed reinforced concrete pier and ro-ro ramp at the Port of Banton, Romblon.
Said port originally has causeway intended only for bancas. The construction of R.C. pier and ro-ro ramp, which is connected to existing causeway, started in January 14, 2016 and was supposed to be completed by August 10, 2016. However, due to harsh weather conditions during the time brought by northeast monsoon, the construction was suspended and was only completed on February 15, 2017.
With the newly constructed R.C. pier and ro-ro ramp at the said port, ro-ro vessels can now be accommodated. At present, there is already one ro-ro vessel docking thereat.
