The PHP 1.024-billion Agas-Agas Bridge is a prestressed concrete beam bridge on the Pan-Philippine Highway. It is a major link for motorists traveling from Luzon to Mindanao.[47] Agas-agas have the tallest piers that the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has constructed, The project is aided by the Japan International Cooperation Agency. The finished bridge has a length of about 350 metres (1,150 ft) and a height of 292 feet (89 m) above ground.[48] The center span is 177 metres (581 ft) in length supported by a 241-foot (73 m) and a 246-foot (75 m) piers from the ground.[49]

The mountainous Agas-Agas section of the Pan-Philippine Highway in Southern Leyte is prone to landslides during heavy rains, much more when typhoon strikes the province. The bridge was constructed in 2006 to avoid the troublesome section and cut down the driving time for motorists.[50]

Seeing its high tourism potential the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) submitted to President Gloria Arroyo the plan to turn the bridge into a haven for enthusiasts of bungee jumping, paramotor, downhill skateboarding, zip-line, rappelling and other extreme sports. Seeing the panoramic beauty of the mountains and rivers around during the inauguration on August 9, 2009, the president signed the construction of the bungee jumping platform along the bridge as well as other tourism amenities.

The Agas-Agas Bridge zipline, now known as “Zipline Leyte”, opened in April 2011.[48] The twin zipline, one of the longest in the country at 880 m (2,890 ft), glides diagonally above the bridge and the Subangdaku river gorge below it.
