Bing pushes for
second city flyover
BY ADRIAN NEMES III
Bacolod Rep. Evelio Leonardia said Saturday that he will push for the construction of the second flyover in the city that has an estimated cost of P365 million, that did not push through before.
Originally, the second flyover was to be built at the junction of Magsaysay Avenue and Araneta Street, where a study had been conducted, but Leonardia, who was the mayor then, did not agree to it as the study was done when the old airport was still operational.
“I will recommend that it be constructed at the junction of Circumferential road and Burgos Extension, near the Lopue’s East because, given the fact that the City’s Government Center is at the Circumferential road, it can be assumed that, in the next five years, the area will become congested”, Leonardia said.
