The Patron family, whose lot will be affected by the Metro Dumaguete Diversion Road, has met with Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo and former Junob Barangay Captain now Kagawad Isagani Bana to secure consent so that a portion of their property will be utilized for the said road network.
In a follow up meeting, Mayor Remollo and the representatives of PhilSouth Builders, Department of Public Works and Highways and family of the lot owner discussed the terms for the eventual opening and use of the property as a road-right-of-way to complete the Camanjac-Magatas section of the four-lane road.
The Metro Dumaguete Diversion Road will serve as a major alternate route for motorists traversing Sibulan-Dumaguete-Bacong, which if completed will significantly reduce traffic congestion in the national highway and downtown area of the city.
It is also expected to spur economic activity and increase the market value of the lands and properties traversed by the diversion road.
