THE NEW passenger terminal building at the Port of Cagayan de Oro (CDO) is expected to be operational by December this year, the Department of Transportation (DoTr) announced. As of August, construction work is almost 80% done for the building, which DoTr said would be the biggest in the country. The terminal, seen to accommodate 3,000 passengers daily, will have check-in areas equipped with x-ray scanning machines, walk-thru metal detectors, restrooms, charging stations, pay parking, ticketing offices, and field offices for port and tourist police.
