Legacion advises folk to walk, bike to save money

By Paulo DS. Papa


Naga City Mayor Nelson Legacion has advised residents and workers to walk and use bicycles to save on transportation expenses as oil prices reached more than P80 per liter.


During his State of the City Address on Tuesday, Mar. 15, in Sta. Cruz Evacuation and Event Center, he said the conflict between Ukraine and Russia is the cause of the skyrocketing prices of fuel product. He suggested to people living and working in the city to use bicycles or walk especially thru the redeveloped streets of downtown Naga.


He said the people in the city are ready to face the present oil crisis due to redeveloped roads which are now biker and pedestrian-friendly.


One of these recently improved city road is the P20 million asphalting project in J. Hernandez Avenue, which was funded by the Department of Budget and Management.


Legacion said that the city government will not decline projects implemented and funded by national government agencies.
