‘Northbound terminal
to create growth area’

The opening of the new Northbound terminal in Barangay Bata, Bacolod City, Sunday has achieved their objectives of creating a new growth center in the area, and to decongest traffic along Lacson Street and La Salle-B.S. Aquino Drive, Bacolod Councilor Dindo Ramos said yesterday.

Ramos, chairman of the Sangguniang Panlungsod Committee on Transportation and Traffic Management, said the northbound terminal has given Bacolod another landmark, and better income to jeepney drivers, especially in Bata and Mandalagan.

A 45-day experimental period was implemented starting Sunday and his committee will collate all recommendations and come up with a final resolution, he said.moremoremore

Look for other areas in
Bacolod,  guv urges SM


Following the lifting of the Temporary Restraining Order on the sale and lease of  the 7.7-hectare prime property  of the Negros Occidental provincial government in Bacolod City to Ayala Land, Governor Alfredo Marañon Jr. yesterday advised the SM Prime Holdings Inc. to look for other areas to invest in, in Bacolod City.

“Bacolod is so wide… they can look for other areas,” Marañon said and he even mentioned the area of BREDCO.

On Sept. 6, the Twentieth Division of the Court of Appeals in Cebu lifted the 60-day TRO it issued on Marañon and  other Negros Occidental  officials sought by SM Prime Holdings Inc. that  had opposed the awarding of the negotiated sale and lease of Ayala, claiming it was the winning bidder to the property.moremoremore
