The Panglao Bohol Airport is projected to be completed in 2018.

The remaining houses inside the construction area of the Panglao Bohol Airport in the resort town of Panglao were demolished yesterday.

Demolition of the homes situated in Barangay Bolod started at 10 a.m., said PO3 Rey Tagaan of the Panglao Police Station.

According to Tagaan, only three houses were left when the demolition team started operations as other residents had already evacuated even prior to the start of the airport’s construction.

Two of the houses were already abandoned, while one family fought to remain in their home and stayed until demolition was already about to start.

The house was owned by one Pascasio Bungos, who was eventually forced to evacuate due to a court order mandating his family’s evacuation.

Families affected by the airport construction have been relocated to Sitio Tae, Barangay Tawala in Panglao.

They were allotted house and lot at the said relocation area.
