MANDAUE CITY, Cebu – On Valentine’s Day, Deputy Speaker and Cebu 5th District Rep. Vincent Franco “Duke” Frasco filed House Resolution No. 1592 that directs the House Committees on Transportation and Good Government and Public Accountability to investigate the traffic crisis that is currently affecting Metro Cebu and identify possible solutions to the said concern.

“Metropolitan Cebu, along with its growing population, has been suffering from severe traffic congestion and other transport-related problems,” read part of resolution that Frasco authored.

It added that “Metropolitan Cebu plays an increasingly significant role in the industrial, commercial and financial development of the Visayas and Mindanao regions,” thus the need to address its traffic crisis.

In his resolution, Frasco said, “the perennial issue of traffic congestion in Metropolitan Cebu greatly affects the general public, particularly the welfare and convenience of the commuters, their time spent in traveling, as well as their health and safety.”

Traffic congestion, according to Frasco, also affect the movement of goods and services “causing disruptions in various economic activities and other businesses.”

Rep. Frasco mentioned a 2018 study by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) which says that the unresolved traffic congestion in Metro Cebu results to at least P1.1 billion in economic losses each day.

“There is a need to study the current traffic situation in Metropolitan Cebu and revisit the existing transportation and development policies and projects being implement, if any,” he said.
