Cebu City Mayor Edgardo Labella will endorse the Cebu Rail Project (CRP) once it is submitted to the Cebu City Development Council (CCDC).

“We will endorse it. We will support it. As I’ve said, we will support the national government’s thrust,” said Labella.

The local chief executive, however, said he has no idea if the project has been submitted for CCDC’s endorsement.

The CRP is part of the Integrated Intermodal Transport System for Metro Cebu.

“That’s part of the integrated intermodal traffic system that will cover not just Cebu City but the other neighboring cities…This is one of the better ways to support the (resolution of the) traffic problem,” Labella said.

Udenna Infrastructure Corporation was granted the original proponent status for the P80-billion CRP.

But, the project, which includes a monorail system, needs endorsements from the CCDC and the Regional Development Council.
