    No, not in Basay. The plan of establishing an international airport in Bacong is now a reality. It is just a matter of time. This airport is expected to spur economic activities in the surrounding areas.
    Bacong is just the perfect place for an airport----its proximity to the capital city of Negros Oriental will surely push urbanization towards south. Will this reach Basay? Well, to be honest.....it might in the next hundred years or so.

    Could you please give us some proof and facts what you call reality please ? What I love in your comment is "it is just a matter of time" . Aha, after having lived in the Philippines for some years I know what you mean. It is possible it could be maybe ?

    We flew out from Sibulan airport on Friday and lots of renovations going on, you have to wonder why if they really intend building a new airport any time soon. :confused:

    Glenda, did you say the PLAN is now a reality?? How many plans in this country never become anything other than plans to scam money out of people. Like the bypass road, that plan never made it past 50% to reality but I am sure a few people made a pile of money out of it...

    Well i guess if they do relocate the old airport will be demolished. Not enough traffic to support two and then Ang Tay can develop the land into another 9 holes to give us an 18 hole golf course. Great idea.

    The budget has been approved and date of construction has been set so I guess finally the plan will now be put into action.

    You are right about plans not coming into fruition and some politicians making tons of money out of these projects. We will see. I like to think about Negros Oriental getting more and more civilized with this new airport project.

    Anything is possible once this project materializes-----restos, massage parlors, taxis, gift shops, etc. should be sprouting around there soon.

    Budget has been approved per congressman Teves. When funds are available, work is sure to start. It's been in the local news yesterday but I just wasn't able to get the link.
