Barricades halt Buri road rehab

The rehabilitation work by the Department of Public Works and Highways on the Honorata Manalo Road (Buri Road) in Barangay Mandalagan, Bacolod City, was temporarily stopped when a commotion ensued between the affected lot owners, barangay officials and the contractor (Silver Dragon) yesterday.

The landowners placed barricades on their properties and posted placards saying “no trespassing” and “private property” to stop the rehabilitation being implemented by the DPWH. The DPWH was prompted to temporarily stop the road rehabilitation in the area to prevent further conflict.

The incident occurred after personnel of the Silver Dragon allegedly threatened and challenged members of the Villacin family, one of the affected lot owners, to a duel if they continue to object to the implementation of the project initiated by Bacolod Rep. Evelio Leonardia.moremoremore
