Cebu News Digest for Feb. 9, 2016: Traffic chaos due to bridge traffic; Rama returns after suspension; Cops ready to secure national bets

TRAFFIC DISASTER. Commuters spent hours on the road early this morning for trips that should take only minutes after DPWH decided to close half of the old bridge.

COMMUTERS in the cities of Lapu-Lapu and Mandaue spent hours on the road today, the first working day after the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) decided to close one lane of the old bridge. Complaints were rife on social media networks like Facebook and Twitter and over radio stations against the monstrous traffic jam that occurred because of the closure. Some commuters reported taking two hours to go to Mandaue from Lapu-Lapu.
