Proposed Roxas City Circumferential Road

Proposed Roxas City Circumferential Road

The Roxas City Government, thru the Capiz Provincial Government identified Roxas City Circumferential Road as one of their priority projects.

Roxas City Circumferential Road would serve as a by-pass road for traffic of goods and passengers going to and from Culasi Port and Panay town and the adjoining north eastern towns of Capiz, without passing thru the central business area of Roxas City.

The Roxas City Circumferential Road is one of four road projects being proposed by DPWH VI under the Panay Roads Investment Development (PRIDE) to be funded under the Japan Bank of International Cooperation.

Roxas City Circumferential Road is divided into two sections:

  • Section I starts at the Culasi Port and passing at the side of Cadimahan River, crosses the said river at Station 10+857 wherein two bridges will be constructed.
  • Section II starts at the junction of the Ivisan-Roxas National Road and eventually joins the national highway going to Panay and Pontevedra towns.

Roxas City has a lot of changes now and improvements.  Since the City Mayor Alan Celino assumed his office last year, there are major changes implemented in the City.  This  is part of his platform of Government which is “4AC: 4 A Change”. Some of the notable physical changes and improvement in Roxas City are:

  • Palm Trees within the center island along the Arnaldo Boulevard Road
  • Reconstruction of the Rotunda Fountain Landmark
  • The implementation of Coding Scheme for Tricycles
  • The construction and repairs of drainage system of major streets and barangays in Roxas City
  • Roxas City Auxilliary Police (Traffic Enforcer) and Sanitary Health Workers
  • Fence barriers within the intersections along Gaisano Blvd and Pres. Manuel Roxas Mem. School to avoid traffic.
  • and many more …

But as of the beginning of year 2011, one of the major changes I’ve noticed online is the website of Roxas City Government. http://roxascity.gov.ph.  As I visited the site to be updated about Roxas City, I’d noticed that the official website of Roxas City is down.  I am thinking that their hosting or domain expired, but as I asked my friends from Roxas City Hall, according to them, there will be a major Continue reading
