Metro Cebu board tackles bridge repairs
ACTING Gov. Agnes Magpale will meet with the Metro Cebu Bridge Management Board (MCBMB) on Wednesday to discuss plans for the repair of the Marcelo Fernan and old Mandaue-Mactan bridges.
“The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) will do the repairs. But first the board should meet. Then work can start anytime after that date,” she said.
She said the agency will advance P774,000 to start repairs on the two bridges.
The DPWH-7 entered into an P18-million contract with contractor PLD Construction to replace the asphalt and corroded bars and steel trusses on the old Mactan-Mandaue Bridge.
About P27 million was set aside to replace the asphalt and two damaged expansion joints of the Fernan bridge. Correspondent Carmel Loise Matus
