Maayo Shipping has announced plans to construct and operate a jetty beside the pumpboat and fastcraft pier in Sibulan town.

Dante Matiao, manager of Maayo Shipping, said their company is eyeing to take over the project initiated by Aomori Rapid Transport System Corporation, which will also involve the construction of a pier at Liloan, Santander Cebu.{{more}}

Matiao said they will undertake the project as soon as they get the approval of the residents living in the barangay.

Matiao said that the Aomori Rapid Transport System Corporation owned by the family of Cebu-based businessman Tony Ouano, has given them the authority to complete the project and manage the jetty.

This facility will service light vehicles traveling between Negros and Cebu, which will ensure bigger savings and shorter travel time for the riding public.

Vice Mayor Antonio Renacia of Sibulan said the permit to construct a jetty was first to the Aomori Rapid Transport System Corporation, but the project failed to materialize.

Sibulan officials and Matiao were set to meet this week to discuss details of the project, including its social acceptability.

The Philippine Ports Authority (PPA) has approved the project plan dated January 11, 2011 with an estimated construction cost of P5.619 million.

Renacia said a public hearing with the residents of barangay poblacion will be held sometime this week following the request of Dante Matiao to determine the opinion of the residents living in the barangay.

They are expecting that the operation of jetty pier will spur economic development in Sibulan. (PNA) jfp/Maricar Aranas
