CEBU City Transportation Office (CCTO) Deputy Chief Kent Jongoy expressed dismay with the management of the Cebu Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) for a road concreting project that was being done in the wrong intersection.

Instead of working on a portion near the intersection of Osmeña Blvd. and N. Bacalso Ave. which was agreed upon and allowed by Cebu City traffic authorities, workers concreted the area along Leon Kilat St. near Elizabeth Mall (E-Mall).

In an interview with SunStar Cebu’s Beyond the Headlines on Tuesday, May 28, 2024, Jongoy said engineers from the Department of Transportation presented their traffic management plan and he was happy about it.

However, the CCTO found out later that the Cebu BRT management team worked in the wrong area.

Jongoy said the CCTO logo was also used by the team without their permission, resulting to an “improper and incorrect” public advisory.

Jongoy said he invited the BRT management to their Traffic Management Council board meeting to clarify the matter.

Meanwhile, another road concreting project is set to be done near the Fuente Osmena Circle.

SunStar Cebu tried to reach BRT project manager Norvin Imbong for his comments on the matter, but as of press time, Imbong had not respond to text messages sent to him on Thursday, May 30.(Melecia Paloma Cando, Benedicto College Intern)
