BACOLOD CITY — The city government has resumed the demolition of illegal structures on sidewalks and roads which obstruct traffic.

An enforcement team of the Bacolod City Legal Office (CLO) removed on Monday, Nov. 28, at least 19 illegal structures on the North Capitol Road sidewalk across Ayala Malls Capitol Central.

Rey Demisana, CLO enforcement team head, said the motorcycles and tricycles illegally parked on one lane of the North Capitol Road next to the sidewalk were also removed.

Renelo Lastierre, Capitol Safety and Security Division head, said the eateries obstruct traffic because they extended their businesses to the road.

“They already knew for some time that they would be removed from the area,” Lastierre said.

The city government’s removal of road obstructions is in compliance with a Department of the Interior and Local Government order.
