AROUND P3 billion worth of road infrastructure projects for Cebu City’s northern part are set to be implemented this year, according to 1st District Representative Raul V. Del Mar. The biggest allocation at P1.3 billion will be spent for skyways and tunnels in the three most congested areas, which include Gorordo Avenue, Salinas Drive, Gov. Cuenco Avenue, and H. Cortes Street. Three other skyways — at the different junctions of Sergio Osmeña Boulevard, General Maxilom Avenue, and on P. del Rosario Street — have a budget of P635,971,000. Another P1 billion is set for the Barangay Lahug — Barangay Guadalupe diversion road; construction of the Cebu Technological University in Barangay Guba; the NextGen Hub, which will be used as a center for youth activities; and a second building for the D.V. Sotto Medical Center. The remaining fund covers road widening and improvement, and flood mitigation projects, among others. Mr. Del Mar said all the projects lined up are expected to be completed by 2022. — The Freeman
