The symbolic scallop-shaped canopy of the old city amphitheater is now almost gone. Large steel frames are now installed forming the skeletal structure of the proposed elevated project.
Photo below shows the back portion of the amphitheater being demolished.
Affected by the construction work is the City’s Police Station No. 1 located at the back of the stage which has been temporarily transferred at the 2nd floor of Goking Building fronting JR Borja Monument.
The steel beams are already in place. the area beneath the beams will be used as parking area.
