ALL systems are go for the P358-million international seaport in two barangays in San Fernando town, Cebu, Mayor Lakambini Reluya said in her State of the Municipal Address (Soma) at the San Fernando sports complex last Sunday.

Reluya told her constituents that stakeholders in the town’s Barangay South and North Poblacion have lent their support to the seaport project which is said to be part of an ongoing reclamation project in the town.

But the mayor was unable to disclose when the five-hectare project will start.

About P6 million was allocated for a road widening project leading to the seaport site.

“The project is budgeted in the General Appropriations Act and it is intended for San Fernando, since the town is included (in the province’s central transport trunkline). The Cebu Port Authority will work on the project,” Reluya said.

Reluya said locals will be prioritized in hiring of workers for the seaport project.

“A fisherman’s village will be built after the project is completed. The town will build economic structures for San Fernando town,” she said.

Mayor Reluya said the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) approved the reclamation project which includes the seaport. She said the area is open for joint ventures with private companies.

Reluya credited Rep. Samsam Gullas of Cebu’s 1st district for lobbying the seaport project to the national government.
