Iloilo City is eyeing the installation of green tunnels for bike lanes, particularly on Diversion Road. In an update, Mayor Jerry Treñas said that the City Hall is finalizing plans for the ‘Green Tunnel Project’. Treñas added that the project is one of the sustainable development plans of the administration to beautify the City of Love and to pursue green initiatives.
“As I roamed around the city last Sunday, I looked for possible projects to help improve the way of life of our residents and beautify the city streets. I tasked our City Engineer’s Office to develop a plan for sustainable development in different areas of the city. I asked them to make the Green Tunnel Project that aims to add green streetscapes. In the absence of trees, this will help soften out concrete roads as a climate change mitigation or adaptation measure,” states Iloilo City Mayor Jerry Treñas in a social media post.
