Good news for travelers! The Bacolod-Negros Occidental Economic Highway (BANOCEH) is set for a partial opening by the end of June or possibly the first week of July.

  • Reduced travel time: Travel between Bacolod City and Bacolod-Silay Airport will be cut by 25 minutes, from the current 1-hour.
  • Improved travel experience: The highway will feature amenities like a bicycle lane, service roads, and landscaping.
  • Staged opening: The first section to open will connect Bacolod City to Bacolod-Silay Airport via the Bacolod-Silay Airport Access Road junction.
  • Future extension: Plans are underway to extend BANOCEH further south towards Victorias City, Manapla, and Sagay City. This extension will not only improve traffic on the Bacolod North Road but also provide  a shorter route from the Victorias-Manapla area to Don Salvador Benedicto.
