Widening of access road
nearing completion: exec

The widening of the 1.2-kilometer access road at the Bacolod-Negros Occidental Economic Highway leading to the Bacolod-Silay Airport road in Silay City is nearing completion, District Engineer Jaime Javellana of the Department of Public Works and Highways Negros Occidental 1st District Engineering Office, said.

The project, worth P45.94 million, involves the widening of roads, from two lanes to four lanes, with width of three meters, he said, adding that travel going to the airport would be easier as it increases the traffic corridor capacity.

Javellana said the Bacolod-Silay Airport road extension project is approximately 90 percent accomplished and is expected to be completed this month.

Prioritize Bacolodnons, DOLE asked

Bacolod Rep. Greg Gasataya has requested Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III to prioritize affected workers in areas placed under Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine, like Bacolod City, in the distribution of assistance.

Gasataya raised the concern during a budget hearing conducted by the Committee on Appropriations of the House of Representatives on the 2021 national budget, where he sits as vice chairman.

People in areas placed under MECQ need immediate assistance since commercial establishments allowed to operate are very limited and only under skeletal workforce, he said.
