The proposed Cebu Light Rail Transport (LRT) system is being included in the list of high-priority public-private partnership (PPP) projects with national economic and transport partners for possible execution.

Philippines’ President Benigno Aquino III issued Executive Order No. 8, which established the Public-Private Partnership Center under the National Economic Development Authority (NEDA), in order to hasten the construction and maintenance of badly needed but costly new infrastructures.

The center would identify potential projects and facilitate the development of proposals as well as feasibility studies.

“Cebu desperately needs a modern, efficient and reliable LRT system, backed by extra railways on both ends, to keep pace with rapid population growth and economic expansion. Cebuanos deserve a fast, safe and convenient LRT system, which would go a long way in addressing our swelling motor vehicle traffic and pedestrian congestion.”

Eduardo Gullas, former Cebu governor and current representative for Cebu, 1st district.

Rep. Eduardo Gullas is author of House Bill 92, the proposed Act Providing for the Cebu LRT System for Operation in Cebu City and Metro Cebu, and Appropriating Funds Therefor.

As proposed in House Bill 92, the Cebu LRT system would run between Talisay City and Mandaue City. New railways would also be provided from Talisay to the Municipality of Dalaguete in the south, and from Mandaue to the Municipality Sogod in the north.

Confidence has been expressed that the project can be a powerful engine for island economy’s future growth.
