Traffic congestion seen today as students, workers return

CEBU City traffic enforcers are back on the streets to decongest the expected heavy traffic and pedestrian flow in the streets as work and classes resume today.
The Cebu City traffic operations management (Citom) said personnel will take two shifts from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 2 p.m. until 10 p.m.

Citom operator Richie Famador said enforcers would be stationed at the intersection in barangay Carreta in light of a traffic light repair there.
Areas to be monitored include those in front Cebu State College of Science and Technology System, (CSCST formerly CSAT), in Gorordo Avenue in front of Colegio de la Immaculada Concepcion and Saint Theresa's College in General Maxilum, among others.

“Traffic is expected to be heaviest near schools since a lot of students are fetched by private vehicle,” Famador said.

He said they coordinated with the Mobile Patrol Group to help enforce traffic rules.
Senior Supt. Patrocinio Commendador Jr., Cebu City police director, said an additional 50 police personnel will help patrol the city streets, including the mobile police outpost along Colon Street that forms part of their Task Force Colon.

In the province, security will be elevated at the South Bus Terminal where student passengers and returning workers are expected to arrive in droves today.

Senior Supt. Jesus Gaquing, Cebu provincial police director, said Special Reaction Unit teams in Consolacion town, Cebu and one SRU team at the provincial headquarters are on standby for operational support along with a provincial mobile group in Ronda town
