on Negros-Panay bridge - guv

Negros Occidental Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. yesterday said a feasibility study on the building of a bridge that will connect Negros to Panay should be conducted now so that it will be ready when funding becomes available for it in the future.

“The study in itself will take a minimum of three years. If we don’t start now, when will we do it?” he asked.

They could seek a foreign grant for the feasibility study or the Philippine government could fund it, said Marañon, who is chairman of the Western Visayas Regional Development Council. moremoremore
