PIA Press Release

Gov't allots P20M to complete RORO port in Santander, Cebu

By Minerva BC Newman

Cebu, Philippines (22 October) -- The Cebu Port Authority (CPA) is set to complete the RORO port in barangay Liloan, Santander Cebu with a funding allocation of about P20-million.

According to CPA general manager Angelo Verdan, the Liloan RORO port was started by Antonio Ouano, a businessman who also owns the Ouano wharf in Mandaue City that obtained a 25-year lease in the foreshore area at barangay Liloan, Santander. Ouano started developing it into a RORO port some 3-4 years ago but stopped the project with only a pier, a concrete road and a causeway.

Verdan said, CPA contracted an international appraisal company to appraise the port so CPA can pay Ouano on his expenses.

The CPA has set aside some P20-millin for the project. "The cost is not a problem because the agency will make the port an income generating port, not just a missionary port," Verdan added.

The CPA has already done the feasibility study of the port project and it plans to make it a bigger port that can accommodate cargoes and passengers.

Currently, Verdan said, the port has been a good favorite alternate RORO port between Negros Oriental and Cebu due to its proximity from Sibulan port to Liloan, a less than half an hour trip and from Liloan, Santander, aircon buses are at hand to take the passengers to Cebu City.

The income potential of this RORO port will be tremendously increased once it is improved and mobility of goods and people from Negros will pave the way to economic growth especially in the southern part of Cebu. (PIA-Cebu) [top]
