CONFIRMED: Bridges to link Cebu to Bohol, Leyte, Negros Oriental approved by President Duterte


17.5-km Cebu-Bohol Friendship Bridge project gets Neda Board’s nod
If plans don’t miscarry, travel to Cebu from Bohol or even as far as Leyte and Negros Oriental on the western side of Cebu will just be one road trip or even a train ride away.

Former Cordova mayor Adelino Sitoy, Presidential Adviser on Legislative Affairs and at the same time head of the Presidential Legislative Liaison Office (PLLO), said yesterday that they have been proposing a public-private partnership (PPP) project for the construction of bridges connecting Negros Oriental to Cebu, Cordova to Getafe town in Bohol, and Carlos P. Garcia town in Bohol to Maasin City in Southern Leyte.

“We have already told the President (Rodrigo Duterte) about this. He has approved this project in principle but asked us to refer this to (Transportation) Secretary (Arthur) Tugade,” said Sitoy.
