Words fly over flyover
BY CARLA GOMEZ
Bacolod Mayor Monico Puentevella asked the Department of Public Works and Highways to start the construction of the proposed flyover project at the Magsaysay-Araneta intersection, during the public consultation held at the DPWH-Bacolod City Engineering District Office in Barangay Taculing yesterday.
Puentevella said the feasibility study for the flyover along Magsaysay-Araneta streets had already been approved back in 2010 when he was yet congressman.

This was his reaction to Mayor Monico Puentevella’s statements at the public consultation on the proposed flyovers held at the Department of Public Works and Highways-Bacolod City District Engineer’s Office compound yesterday.
