July 10, 2024 — The installation of radar-assisted traffic lights at 5 major intersections are ongoing to improve traffic flow and reduce congestion in Bacolod City.

The locations are:

1. Burgos St. – Brgy. Estefania Sofia Gonzaga (Metro Bacolod Hospital)

2. Alijis Rd. – Lacson Ext. (Pao De Arco)

3. Araneta Ave. – Carlos Hilado Ave. (Cegasco)

4. Burgos St. – San Juan St. (Near SM)

5. B.S. Aquino Drive – San Juan St. (Sto. Niño Stop)

The three locations (Buri Road – Brgy. Mandalagan, Police Station 6 – Barangay Taculing and North Capitol Road) have already been completed.

These lights use radar technology to detect traffic volume and speed, adjusting timings dynamically to improve flow. A notable feature is the pedestrian push button, enhancing safety by prioritizing crossing when pressed.

The inclusion of radar-assisted traffic lights, are part of Mayor Albee’s initiative to improve and upgrade the city, particularly in addressing traffic concerns.
