The missing Cebu City circumferential road


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. To the south, there is already the familiar South Coastal Road (SCR), which passes through the South Road Properties (SRP). The SCR starts at the area near Pier I in Cebu City, follows the eastern line of the SRP, enters Talisay City and ends at the point when it merges with the old highway to the south in Lawaan, Talisay.
