Clear to partly cloudy skies over Bacolod with chances of isolated rains is in the forecast this week. Mainly, clear skies will rule over the rest of the city followed by isolated rains over the southern and eastern part of Bacolod during afternoon onwards. Light to moderate winds from the east to the northeast will prevail, while coastal waters will have light to moderate waves. The minimum temperature will be at 24°C (75.2°F), while maximum temperature will be at 33°C (91.4°F) [1].

Traffic news: PhP1.1-B underpass project eyed to lessen traffic congestion

A PhP1.1 billion-worth underpass project is eyed along C.L. Montelibano Avenue-Circumferential Road in Bacolod. This project is a proposal of The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH). The underpass is will be 600 meters long with four lanes that will eventually help lessen the traffic congestion in the area. Burgos Street is also considered as a part of the project since heavy traffic congestion is also in the area. If the project is pursued, it will be the first underpass in Western Visayas [2].


Travel Updates

Bacolod all set for Micecon 2018

The Meeting, Incentive, Convention and Exhibitions Conference (Micecon) is now all set from November 27 to 29 in Bacolod. The city government is now preparing after winning against Clark in Pampanga to host the conference. One of the reasons why Bacolod was chosen as the host was because of the awards the city has received, especially when it was cited as “The Top Model City” in the country. At least 600 participants are expected to attend the gathering including airlines, hotels, resorts, convention centers, event organizers and exhibit organizers [3].

Municipality of Isabela, a tourist destination in Negros

A resolution making the town of Isabela as a tourist destination in Negros Occidental was unanimously approved during the town’s second municipal convention. The resolution is one of the requirements for budget requests for the concretization of access roads leading to the tourist destinations of Isabela. Tourist destinations in Isabela includes the ruins of old houses, the Holy Mountain, several farms, and eco-tourism sites. The municipality is delayed in declaring their town as a tourist destination that’s why they need to have a collaboration with nearby towns of La Castellana and Binalbagan to come up with a combined tour package [4].

Passed Laws and Ordinances: Tricycle for hire units in Bacolod to be reduced

The number of tricycle units for hire in various barangays in Bacolod is proposed to be reduced by the city council. The proposed ordinance authored by councilor Dindo Ramos authorizes the adjustment of the number of units of associations of motorized tricycle for hire upon the recommendation of barangay officials [5]. This is great news since it will somehow help lessen traffic congestions on routes used by both public utility jeepneys and motorized tricycles.
