Mandaue City will construct a tri-level pass with a budget of Php1 billion.
Mandaue City Mayor Luigi Quisumbing said the city has already started preparing traffic mitigation measures for the Php 1-billion tri-level pass project. This will include the construction of tunnel, a flyover and a road along United Nations Avenue and DM Cortes St., Mandaue City.
Among measures eyed by the city are the alternative forms of transportation that utilize the city’s waterways and the closure of main roads leading to Marcelo Fernan Bridge and Candaga Bridge during the period of construction. On the other hand, implementation of the project will take two years.
The operation of a barge, Roll-on Roll-off (RoRo) ships and water taxi services to take commuters between Mandaue City and Lapu-Lapu City are now underway along with the opening of new diversion roads near the project in Barangay Umapad.
