About four road networks are being planned in relation to the development of the Ciudad project in the Banilad-Talamban (Bantal) Corridor, Cebu City.
In a presentation before Cebu Gov. Gwendolyn Garcia and officials of the Cebu City Traffic Operations Management (CITOM), project contractor, Fifth Avenue Property Development Corp., said it will help decongest traffic in the area.
The contractor unveiled their plans to open up road extensions from Asiatown IT Park to Governor M. Cuenco Avenue.
The four road networks would be connected to the existing road network at Asiatown IT Park.
Capitol consultant Rory Jon Sepulveda said a road network could be opened on the lot formerly occupied by the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) office since this is already vacated.
This and other lots occupied by the National Irrigation Administration (NIA), National Food Authority (NFA), and Population Commission along Governor M. Cuenco Avenue were identified by Sepulveda as some of the province-owned lots.
The lots were part of the 144 lots that were returned to the province.
They were previously donated by the Capitol to the Cebu City government in January 1, 1966.
Due to a compromise agreement, these lots were returned to the province.
Citom chairman Sylvan Jakosalem said there?s also a proposed road widening of the Gov. M. Cuenco Avenue from the Technical Education Skills and Development Authority (TESDA) office towards Paradise Village.
The owner of the University of Cebu told Jakosalem that he may donate some lots near the area to stretch the road widening up to its school.
Jakosalem also presented to the governor a resolution for the opening of the Larsian road.
Garcia told Jakosalem that she would only open that road once the trailer of the province is returned.
The Citom chairman said the trailer will soon be returned and they would ensure that the Larsian road will be ?vendor free.?
An agreement to open the Larsian road is expected to be signed on April 12. Correspondent Carmel Loise Matus
