Coronavirus delays startup of Bacolod’s flagship projects


Due to the coronavirus disease (Covid-19) pandemic, the Bacolod City Government’s three flagship projects will proceed next year.

These multimillion-peso projects are the Bacolod Museum, Bacolod MassKara Coliseum, and the Bacolod South Terminal.

Councilor Dindo Ramos said the city government targeted to build the museum and the coliseum this year on a 7.4-hectare property in barangays Tangub and Alijis. (

The terminal, meanwhile, will be built on a 1.5-hectare adjacent lot.

Ramos said he will file a resolution in the Sangguniang Panlungsod requesting the City Engineer’s Office to submit a report in relation to these pending projects.

The budget for the museum will come from the national government which Senator Juan Miguel Zubiri pledged.

The coliseum, on the other hand, has a budget of P800 million from the P1.7-billion loan of the city government from the Development Bank of the Philippines.
