Traffic News: Security plan is ready for Bacolaodiat Festival

The Bacolod City Police Office (BCPO) is going to deploy security personnel consisting of 1,720 police, traffic enforcers, and force multipliers for the 14th Bacolaodiat Festival on February 1 to 5.

Chief Inspector Lester Leada stated that 400 augmentation personnel from the Police Regional Office of Western Visayas in Iloilo City are expected to join the existing 600 BCPO personnel to help maintain the festival’s security. He added that about 400 force multipliers and volunteers from different anti-criminality groups will also be part of the team.

BCPO’s objective is to have zero major incidents. Part of their security measures during the festival is placing three watch towers at the Bacolod City Government Center (BCGC) to oversee the people and vehicles on the ground.

To have an organized traffic scheme in this five-day event, a total of 320 enforcers will be deployed. BTAO also plans to implement a one-way traffic scheme in Lacson Street and the BCGC area, where parades will be held and public utility vehicles are expected to pass by during the festival. While BCGC is located along the Circumferential Road, trucks passing by should strictly follow the existing truck bans from 4 PM to 7 PM [2].

Travel Update: New food hub in the city soon to rise

Good news, seafood lovers! The province was advised to fast-track the completion of the Pala-Pala Food Terminal in Bacolod City. Acting Provincial Administrator Lucille Gelvolea said that Negros Occidental Governor Alfredo Marañon Jr. will turn over the PhP115-million food terminal before June 30 this year.
