Cebu City, Philippines–The Department of Transportation in partnership with the Department of Public Works and Highway in Central Visayas, and local government units inaugurated a 129-kilometer bike lane network covering at least four localities in Metro Cebu on Friday, July 16, 2021.

The inauguration was held at the South Road Properties (SRP) here.

Metro Cebu’s bike lane network covers four cities – Talisay, Cebu, Mandaue, and Lapu-Lapu, and took about six months to  complete. P140 million was spent to complete the network.  

The bike lane found in SRP is classified as a Class 1 bike lane with a width of five meters.

Apart from that, it also features a three-kilometer pedestrian sidewalk separated from the bike lane, a shed for bike racks and benches, and solar studs that light up during nighttime to guide bikers.

Officials present during the inauguration were Department of Transportation (DOTr) assistant secretary Mark Steven Pastor, Department of Public Works and Highways Region 7 Director Edgar Tabacon, Lapu-Lapu City Councilor Jan Vincent Dela Serna, Talisay City Mayor Gerald Anthony Gullas, Sixth District Board Member Glenn Anthony Soco, DPWH Secretary Mark Villar, Transport Advocate Atty. Antonio Oposa Jr., Mandaue City Councilor Andreo Icalina, and Atty. Gerry Carillo of the Sugbo Bike Lane Board.

“The establishment of the bike lanes in Cebu is a change in the transportation landscape, it inculcates the responsibility of road-sharing among all road users and [makes] the city more liveable and greener to its constituents,” Pastor said.

Most of the bike lanes are on the street protected with bollards bolted to the road. In my area they are only wide enough for one bike. Not sure if all lanes have bollards or just painted lines on the road.

Since Covid there has been a big increase in bikes as transport was and still is at times limited.
