The Seriously Controversial Banilad Road


The Banilad Road is one of the most controversial parts of the city.

1. It is where the Ciudad Mall was set to rise. Mayor O, however, blocked the project because

2. The traffic in Banilad Road is horrible. So, the city government proposed to

3. Build a flyover which would solve the horrible traffic condition. However,

4. Establishment owners resentment as it would surely “affect our business”.

5. The City, however, finalized its decision and a flyover was scheduled to be constructed. But

6. The establishment owners wanted to stop the construction altogether or at least postpone it until after the New Year.

7. In retaliation, the provincial government closed some roads in the city [which the province owns]

8. And threatened to do other stuff like take all the land that they own in the city back!


See how controversial it is?

  1. Flyover means overpass, right? An overpass is a good idea, it will help in solving the traffic congestion that they’re having now, they should agree to that.

  2. . . . . totally lost on Cebu’s latest booming infrastructures. Keep it up Cebu! Are all of these politically motivated? Because during the Marcos regime, Cebu was absoultely dead in infrastructures. Cebu used to be the bailiwick for the oppostions (anti-regime) and lately it was Cebu’s vote that made Mdm Glo the Prez.

  3. ley, unsa man imo boot ipasabot?? dili diay tinood ang ingon ni osmena nga traffic ang banilad/talamban area??? u mean ur gov. is right??

  4. kapoy kaayo mag drive dri dapita especially during rush hour, maka-ugtas.
    Mag UC banilad man unta ko ley (enrol ug law ba) pero the idea of driving to school at 5 pm with the construction of the overpass in the near future is just too much of an idea.

  5. nindot pud raba daw ang law sa uc. thumbs up daw!

    yup, huot gyud diha dapit, especially sa hapon… sa usc na lang gyud ka kay dili kaayo traffic didto dapit.
