Capitol to shoulder cost of asphalting unfinished road project in Mandaue

THE Cebu Provincial Government and Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) have agreed that the former will spend for the asphalting of the unfinished junction road on UN Avenue, Mandaue City, Cebu.

Governor Gwendolyn Garcia said the unfinished road project on UN Avenue is just causing hassle and worries to motorists and tourists who are passing by the area from Lapu-Lapu City to Cebu City and other areas in Cebu province.

The road project was started by the DPWH with funding from the National Government, but it was stopped due to legal issues with the contractor.

"We found out that that project has been halted. It seems that they are in limbo there...So in the meantime, trying to show kung sinong matigas, tayong lahat ang nalalata. Kitang tanan niini ang nahasol samtang they're in a stalemate. Maayo unta'g mag stalemate na sila nga sila ra'y mag antos among-among. Kana ilang stalemate naamong ang tibuok publiko hasta pang imahe sa Sugbo," said Garcia on Monday, November 14, 2022.

To address the problem, Garcia said the Provincial Government will allot funds for the asphalting of the about 100-meter long and 30-meter wide road.

"Mao to niingon ko nga hala gipa compute, Kapitol na ana. Kamo tabang mo sa inyong equipment. Ang ilang equipment payloader ra man tingali to. Nagpatabang ta sa atong quarry permittees diri sa lungsod sa Consolacion ug magpasalamat ta nila ni contribute sila para sa backfill," said Garcia.

(So I told them to compute the cost and the Capitol will shoulder it. You help provide the equipment, because they only have a payloader. We asked for help from our quarry permittees in Consolacion and we must thank them for their contribution particularly in backfilling.) (ANV/LMY)
