Due to its physical configuration, the spatial development of Metro Cebu is linear in form that goes north and south from Cebu City’s central business district (CBD). For so long, one could only travel from Cebu City to the north or south through the old national highway that connects all the cities and towns in Metro Cebu. Now one can go to the north by crossing the new Cansaga Bridge in Mandaue City and following the Tayud provincial road that goes through Consolacion and ends in Liloan.
