Pasil opposes P27-billion bridge because it will affect residents’ sleep, displace people
Barangay Pasil in Cebu City issued a resolution opposing the construction of the Cebu-Cordova bridge. The P27-billion, 8.25 kilometer bridge will use 7.5 meter of space in each side of the Guadalupe River and will displace residents in Barangay Pasil. One of the ramps that will connect to the bridge will be constructed at the South Coastal Road part of the Guadalupe River and that could displace people living in Sitios Lawis, Lawis Riverside, Concepcion Riverside and Tikaban Riverside. The council also said the construction of the mega-project could also disturb the sleep of the residents.
Barangay Pasil resists and defies the proposed construction of the third bridge that will traverse perpendicular along Guadalupe River. However, another venue will be more acceptable as a proposal. Barangay Pasil resolution.
Di man mi against sa improvement sa Guadalupe River, pero daghan lang gyud ang maapektaran. Dako kaayo na nga trabahoon. Madisturbo and tulog inig ka gabii kay saba na kaayo. Residential man ang naa sa coastal area. karon lang gani, madungog namo nang dagkong sakyanan gaagi sa SRP. Pasil Barangay captain Julius Guioguio.
