Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo has been helping the Department of Public Works and Highways and a contractor in negotiating with several lot owners to donate or sell portions of their properties as part of the diversion road.
Several heavy equipment are clearing and compacting the section of the diversion road that traverses the Camanjac-Batinguel crossing Vida Royal, which will lead to the Candau-ay-Cadawinonan bridge going to the Dumaguete-Valencia road in Barangay Talay, Dumaguete City.
Once completed, the diversion road will help decongest traffic as Remollo intends to make it a primary route for trucks and jeepneys from out-of-town.
Meanwhile, the construction of the mini-hospital, worth P10.7 million, in Barangay Talay will be initially funded by the Department of Health through a memorandum of understanding with the city government of Dumaguete.
Remollo said the facility will be expanded, managed, staffed, and equipped by the administration with an adequate diagnostic center to serve the medical needs in the upper barangays.*
