P50-M colon project stopped.
Cebu City has stopped the implementation of a P50-million underground canal project by the Department of Education along Colon st. Tinago Barangay Captain Joel Garganera, the chairman of the Reduction of Danger Zones, said the canal is too big and the planned exit–Estero-Parian creek–is heavily stilted.
The water will become stagnant because it won’t be drained. You are just creating another problem. With the present siltation, the main creek is shallow. That is why I cannot recommend that project. Joel Garganera, Tinago Barangay Captain.
