  • Sakto ba kaha kining desisyon ni Mayor Mike Rama nga hunongon na ang pagtukod og dugang nga mga flyover sa Syudad sa Sugbo ug maghunahuna ang taga DPWH og mga alternatibong solusyon sa kahuot sa trapiko?
  • Kini bitaw diri sa Mambaling. Una nakong nakita nga plano kabahin niini mao kadtong flyover nga moliko gikan sa N. Bacalso dapit sa Maria Gochan side padulong sa Mambaling access road sa SRP.

  • Patas-an. Angayan na nga patas-an ang multa sa jaywalking o kanang tawo nga motabok sa dalan nga disubay sa lugar tabukanan. Sus, ang multa nga P50 sa jaywalking sa dakbayan sa Sugbo morag panahon pa ni Mampor.
  • Si Kon. Ritchie Osmeña mipasaka og amendatory ordinance nga ang P50 nga multa sa jaywalking isaka ngadto sa P200 nga minimum ug sa P1000 nga maximum. Sa P50 nga multa morag di kaayo mahadlok ang katawhan.

  • The debate is brewing over Congresswoman Rachel del Mar’s proposal to put up additional flyovers in the city.
  • Some sectors of society, in particular members of the BanTal Task Force headed by businessman Bunny Pages, are not inclined to support the building of flyovers. They are proposing instead the widening of roads and establishment of alternate routes to solve our traffic woes.
  • Flyovers affect the business establishments and have never been found effective in easing traffic in Cebu or elsewhere in our country. A classic example is the Banilad-Talamban flyover.
  • The beautification of Osmeña Blvd. initiated by the city government with Mariquita Salimbangon-Yeung and with some of the prominent Cebuanas would be the best test of a public-private partnership’s viability in accomplishing things for the city.
  • What will happen to the sidewalk vendors? I was informed that they will not be displaced but their stalls will be beautified with uniform colors. The vendors as in Olongapo City will be utilized as peacekeeping agents.

  • Thirty-three years ago, we had kalesas on Cebu roads, and jeepneys and cars but not as many as we have now.
  • Thirty-three years ago, Cebu’s population size was smaller and the business district was limited to the stretch of Colon St. and surrounding areas. There were no massive malls, hotels and convention centers.
  • What was striking about Cebu City Mayor Michael Rama’s statement last week about wanting a stop to flyover erection was not that there will be no more of those pesky constructions but that the existing transportation plan was made 33 years ago.
