Being one of the busiest roads in the city, City of Balanga has set plans to widen the Capitol Drive by mid-year.

In a hearing held at Bulwagan II recently, Mayor Joet Garcia, city mayor of Balanga, informed the public that the widening shall be done mainly on the sidewalk and not really on the road. He also wards off all the worries of those who are concern about the environment and public utilities that may be affected by the project.

Almost all the various sectors of the community more particularly owners of a row of business establishments in Capitol Drive attended the said hearing. Owners of business establishments along the area show their full support by not putting up a hard stand against the project of the city government.

Aside from discussing the expansion of the sidewalk of the Capitol Drive, Mayor Garcia also introduced Jun Palafox, architect, of the country's well-known urban planner and contractor for Palafox Associates, who presented how a University Town should look and what it is like to be in the future when it is completed in 2020.

If will be pushed through, the said project is expected to attract more investors since it will be accessible for clients of the business establishments along the Capitol Drive. [via pia.gov.ph]
