P404M road work
for airport to start


Work on Bacolod-Silay Airport Access Road (BSAAR) Project worth P404.6 million will start in February, Rep. Alfredo Abelardo Benitez (Neg. Occ. 3rd District) said yesterday.

This alternative road linking Bacolod City with the airport site in Silay City is a priority project this year and will boost more initiatives for urbanization in Metro Bacolod and the Third District of Negros Occidental, he said.

To be constructed is a 10.12 kilometer two lane road, six bridges, seven intersections, and drainage and slope protection structures, Benitez told the DAILY STAR.moremoremore

with guns, ‘shabu’

A businessman claiming to be a police colonel, was arrested by the police yesterday after a car chase in Brgy. Suay, Himamaylan City, Negros Occidental, for possession of a cache of high-powered firearms and suspected shabu.
