Yep, absolutely right.  It's a tarmac section I think, pounded daily by trucks and just not up to the job.  Concrete roads are the only way to go for high traffic routes here as they figured out long ago in Thailand and elsewhere. 

 

The whole traffic/road situation in Cebu City is deteriorating at a rapid rate of knots.  Even less of enforcement of traffic rules - such as they are - as there are hardly any CITOMs these days.  The helmet law is a complete joke and I've lost count of the number of families on a bike that I seen dicing with death with only dad wearing a helmet or not as the case may be.  Complete gridlock will come one day soon, probably during a heavy rain storm, with some flooding and the break down of a few unmaintained vehicles on key roads and intersections.

I drove from Moalboal to Mactan yesterday and from the SRP to the old bridge was the worst bit of road on the whole journey.

 

I think it's the only part of Cebu that you need an SUV.

Big potholes everywhere, all is true what you said including helmets etc.

 

At least we are winning the war on drugs - which will go on forever since the supply of young people with no hope shows no end.

I saw last week in Talisa a girl or I should say two girls on a bike with 3 babies between them which is not unusual except the driver was or must of been new she was wobbling all over the road I was scared to pass her just in case she fell oh no helmets of course and paper plate and slippers for the driver

Ive taken my L3 up roads in the hills only Habal Habals or crazy foreigners would traverse, and those roads are better than some Cebu city streets..
