Liloan, Cebu’s Pier 88 Port is set to open to the public by the end of the month, Deputy Speaker Duke Frasco of Cebu said Thursday.
Frasco said Pier 88 will serve commuters from Bohol, Camotes Islands, Leyte, and Metro Cebu.
“This will decongest the traffic in northern Metro Cebu, particularly in Consolacion and Mandaue City, by providing an alternative mode to land transport via sea transport from Liloan to Mactan and Cebu City," said Frasco.
"Residents from the northern parts of Cebu who commute daily on the way to their respective workplaces in the cities of Mandaue, Lapu- Lapu and Cebu would also greatly benefit from this as this significantly cuts their travel time by half,” he added.
The project had its groundbreaking ceremony in October 2019 and had an inauguration in 2021. The development project was done through the partnership between the Municipality of Liloan, Pier88 Ventures, Inc., Topline Group of Companies, Vikingland Corporation, and FL Port Management Corporation. —Llanesca T.
