Business World - - THE NATION -

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.
