Workers have already demolished the wall that separates the portion of the multi-million diversion road traversing Camanjac-Batinguel crossing Vida Royal, which shall lead to the Candau-ay-Cadawinonan bridge going to the Dumaguete-Valencia road (actually a national highway) in Barangay Talay.
Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo has been helping the DPWH and contractor in negotiating with several lot owners to donate or sell portions of their properties as part of the diversion road.
After clearing the route, concreting works and widening will proceed. Disputes with owners of the lots to be traversed by the diversion road have delayed the full completion of the project. Once completed, the new diversion road will help decongest traffic in the downtown area.
