Lapu-lapu traffic group ready for November 1, 2

Christell Fatima M. Tudtud (The Freeman) - October 24, 2016 - 12:00am

CEBU, Philippines - At least 25 traffic personnel will be deployed at the Mactan Island Memorial Garden on  the biggest cemetery in Lapu-Lapu City, to ensure a smooth flow of vehicle traffic on All Saints' and All Souls' Days.

"Mo-deploy mi og 25 ka personnel diha sa may cemetery nga dako, didto sa may (barangay) Marigondon," said Mario Napule, head of the city's Traffic Management Systems.

Several roads in Marigondon are being fixed at present but Napule assured the situation will be placed under control.

Personnel would also be deployed at the Municipal Cemetery in Barangay Gun-ob and its adjacent Catholic Cemetery in Sitio Humay-Humay, still in Gun-ob.

Napule said traffic advisories will be released a few days before November 1 and 2.

"Coordinated (sad) ta police and air force," he said.

Number coding

Meanwhile, the planned number coding at the Mandaue - Mactan Bridge is yet to be finalized, Napule said.

Napule said the second proposal the city received is to divert public vehicles to the Marcelo Fernan Bridge.

"Pero dili tanan kay naa man gud (certain) situation, sama anang UC (University of Cebu- Lapu-Lapu and Mandaue Campus), daghan man estudyante dinha gud... at least, makuhaan siya bisag 50 percent lang o 40 percent ba kaha," he said.

Napule remains positive that a number coding at the old bridge will be approved by the city government, a solution to ease up the traffic volume at the bridge.

Mayor Paz Radaza said earlier the proposed scheme is a good idea but needs further study and consultation with residents. (FREEMAN)
