Gov. Eugenio Jose Lacson and Rep. Jose Francisco Benitez led the inauguration and blessing of the solar streetlights project at the Tourism Circumferential Highway (Bacolod-Silay Access Road) in Talisay City, Negros Occidental, on November 7.
The project was funded by the provincial government of Negros Occidental, and implemented through the Provincial Engineer’s Office.
Benitez said the solar streetlights project will improve visibility and increase safety at night, for the tourists visiting the famous house of Don Mariano Lacson, known as ‘The Ruins.’
Lacson and Benitez were joined by Mayor Neil Lizares and other Talisay City officials.
The Tourism Circumferential Highway is a major thoroughfare linking Bacolod City to Talisay City and Bacolod-Silay International Airport.*
