Mandaue City inaugurates alternative road to ‘Lacion-A A +A
Wednesday, December 11, 2013
THE Mandaue City Government yesterday inaugurated the Cubacub-Casili road that serves as an alternative road going to Consolacion.
The two-lane road is called D.L. Bihag Street.
The road project is worth almost P4 million and is funded by the City Government.
It is a 434 lineal meters road which will serve as alternative route from M.C. Briones St. or North Road Jagobiao-Basak going to Consolacion by passing the road of Barangay Cubacub connecting to Casili.
Mayor Jonas Cortes together with his wife, Sarah Walker-Cortes, who is also the head of the beautification project in Mandaue, joined the inauguration with the barangay officials and residents.
The short ceremony was followed with a blessing by Fr. Lito Peralta of Nativity of Mary Parish.
Primarily, the residents which include the homeowners of DECA homes, Christ the King Subdivision and Kauswagan Village will benefit the newly-inaugurated road.
Public Information Officer Roger Paler said this will lessen the traffic congestion going to northern part of Cebu by providing alternative roads to private vehicles.
Paler said the vehicles going to the north may take the Talamban or Mandaue route through M.L Quezon to Canduman. Vehicles may then go uphill to Cubacub main road passing Deca Homes Subdivision, then to lower Casili and right turn to Casili Mandaue, pass Casili-Consolacion and have an exit to Foodrama-Consolacion.
Paler said the project consisted of three phases. These include the 320 lineal meter Casili road which cost P3.2 million, the 72 lineal meter Cubacub road which cost P726,000 and the 42 lineal meter gap which connects the two barangays.
These were done by the Ascencion Construction and Ferac Builders, who served as contractor of the project.
