The government’s “Build Build Build” projects in the Visayas are paving the way for increased economic activity and more business and tourism ventures in the region. The government was able to build various infrastructure projects such as airport improvements, bridges, seaports, roads, housing projects, and many other infra-projects during the last five years. In the list below, let us check the status of five major development projects in the Visayas to make life easier for Filipinos.
Metro Cebu Expressway
Spanning 73.75-kilometers with a 2km tunnel, the Metro Cebu Expressway serves as an alternative backbone highway from north to south, connecting Naga City to Danao City in Southern Cebu. Approximately more than two million people will benefit from the traffic decongestion through the expressway project in Metro Cebu.

Undertaken by Cebu Cordova Link Expressway Corporation (CCLEC), a subsidiary company of the Metro Pacific Tollways Corp. At least 50,000 vehicles a day will be passing MPTC road as soon its opening.
The Fourth Cebu Mactan Bridge
In addition to the three bridges that span across the Mactan Channel, a fourth bridge that connects Cebu and Mactan Island is being constructed by the DPWH in partnership with the Japanese government to help decrease the heavy traffic in Metro Cebu. It is set to be finished in 2028.
Panglao-Tagbilaran City Offshore Connector Bridge
As part of the Mega Bridge Master Plan, the Panglao-Tagbilaran City Offshore Connector Bridge spanning 2.71-kilometers will allow connection from Bohol to the island municipalities of Dauis and Panglao. As of April last year, the bridge is almost 60% done. The project is expected to ease congestion leading to the Bohol-Panglao International Airport. A national road system from the Tagbilaran Port area to the airport is in the pipeline after the completion of the bridge.
To connect the two provinces of Negros Occidental and Negros Oriental via Gatuslao, the 2.21-kilometer Candoni-Gatuslao-Basay Boundary Road, also known as the “Negros Connector,” will link the municipalities of Candoni and Hinoba-an in Negros Occidental to the cities of Basay in Negros Oriental.

Foodies will also enjoy a grand time when in Cebu. The province offers a gastronomic adventure with all-time Filipino favorites such as lechon, danggit, dried mango, and chicharron. Cebu’s dried mangos are also a bestseller worldwide.
History and culture come alive every January upon the celebration of the Sinulog Festival. The colorful festival commemorates the arrival of Christianity in Mactan. A vibrant street parade and a fun street party are few of the things locals and tourists anticipate.
Cebu’s bustling city has a robust economy with many business and employment opportunities. It is host to several growing industries, including real estate, business process outsourcing, information technology, and furniture making.
