Metro Cebu Expressway (Cebu Circumferential Road)

Project Description: 

Approximately 56.9 km long high standard arterial toll road planned to meet Metro Cebu’s existing and future traffic demand.  The project will serve as another north-south backbone highway providing a seamless traffic flow from Naga City up to Danao City traversing along the slopes of the mountain range of Cebu Province and is expected to significantly address the traffic congestion within Metro Cebu especially its urban core and Central Business Districts.

The proposed Cebu Circumferential Road, based on the pre-feasibility study report of JICA, is a South to North bypass road along the hills of Metro Cebu and is divided into three (3) segments. The stationing and the corresponding lengths of each station are shown below:
