P711M DPWH road project in Mandaue City questioned
MEMBERS OF the multi-sector Metro Cebu Bridge Management Board (MCBMB) wants to defer the implementation of the P711million depression road project along UN Avenue and Plaridel Street in Mandaue City until an updated study and traffic management plan are put in place. “We are not against development and progress but we have to do what is the right project,” said Glenn Soco, chairman of the Regional Development Council-7 infrastructure committee. At a meeting of the MCBMB Tuesday, it was pointed out that the project, under the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) and awarded to contractor B.M. Marketing, was based on an old study by the Japan International Cooperation Agency, which needs to be updated. MCBMB Co-chairman Pericles Dakay said the project has to be reviewed given the “substantial changes” in the present landscape, such as the expansion of the Mactan-Cebu International Airport and the economic growth of neighboring Lapu-Lapu City.
