Secretary Mark Villar of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) announced during his visit to Cebu that apart from the Metro Cebu Expressway, the DPWH will also build two major underpass projects in the province.


The two underpasses will be constructed by the DPWH in the cities of Cebu and Mandaue, they are planned to built this year. Sec. Villar also noted that the agency is studying the establishment of retarding basins and mini dams as long-term solutions to flooding.

The DPWH has also started conducting feasibility studies for the construction of bridges connecting the differnt island provinces in the Visayas.

During the first few months of the Duterte administration, the economic team of Pres. Duterte unveiled its strategy to "build, build, build" as a way of boosting economic growth through spending on major infrastructure projects around the country.


Sec. Villar also noted that the DPWH had conducted feasibility studies for the 74-kilometer Metro Cebu Expressway project. The first phase of the project will run from Talisay City to Cebu and then to Mandaue City.

The second phase covers the Consolacion-Liloan-Compostela-Danao City section while the third phase will be from Naga City to Minglanilla town.

Construction of the said project will be fully funded by the DPWH although Sec. Villar hinted that the government might bid out the operation and maintenance of the expressway to a private company.
