Mandaue road rehab to affect PUJs bound for Lapu, tricycles

LAPU-LAPU City-bound public utility jeepneys (PUJs) and tricycles from Barangay Paknaan in Mandaue City are no longer allowed to pass D.M. Cortes St. (formerly Plaridel Street) starting today as the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) will start its road rehabilitation project in the area.

Engr. Rachel Lumapas, DPWH-7 project engineer, said the project was supposed to start last April but was delayed because of Cobra IronMan Triathlon and the repair of the first Mactan-Mandaue bridge.

The road rehabilitation project covers the stretch from Sea Oil gasoline station in Plaridel Street to Total gasoline station at corner UN Avenue.

Traffic Enforcement Agency of Mandaue (TEAM) chief Glenn Antigua said PUJs from Parkmall and JCentre Mall going to MEPZ 1 and Soong and tricycles from Paknaan would be affected by the road repair. “Ang mga PUJs going to MEPZ 1 and Soong ang ma-affected kay di na sila makaagi sa Plaridel,” Antigua said.

Antigua said PUJs from Parkmall may use the first bridge and will turn right on A.C. Cortes St., while vehicles from JCentre Mall may pass through MC Briones Street, then right to AC Cortes, left to SB Cabahug then right turn to UN Avenue going to Marcelo Fernan bridge. While tricycles from Paknaan may pass through P. Burgos at the back of Pacific Mall.

“Ang moagi nalang unya sa Plaridel mao ang mga PUJ going north ug mga buses ug trucks kay dinha man gyud sila moagi,” Antigua said.

Antigua also encouraged private vehicles to divert their route.

“Kon gikan sila sa Lapu-Lapu mas maayo nga moagi sila sa daang taytayan ug kon mopaingon sila sa Lapu-Lapu moagi sila sa dalan MC Briones then right turn paingon sa UN Avenue lahos sa Marcelo Fernan Bridge,” Antigua said.

Mandaue Mayor Gabriel Luis Quisumbing said they would hold a monthly meeting with the DPWH for a proper traffic coordination, while the road project is ongoing.
