The Department of Public Works and Highways in Central Visayas (DPWH-7) is advising the public to prepare for gridlocks in the next few months. This is because major road projects worth PhP1.75 billion will be rolled out, mostly in Mandaue City. These include the rehabilitation of Ouano Ave., the U.N. Ave. underpass project, and the Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway (CCLEX) project . To ease traffic woes in Mandaue City, the Traffic Enforcement Agency of Mandaue (TEAM) is looking into bringing back the truck ban and providing motorists with alternate routes.
With the opening of Terminal 2 of the Mactan Cebu International Airport (MCIA) in June, more tourists are expected to arrive at at a time when these construction projects are ongoing. Thus, it is advisable for tourists to be at the airport three to four hours before their flights, taking into account heavy traffic when going to the airport .
