Just a bridge

Traffic is always heavy here in Cebu. This is not an extraordinary item. Depending on where you are staying, you will need to cross this bridge.

A bridge is a bridge, though it can be attractive and look like a work of art occasionally. This bridge falls somewhere in the middle. Its clearly functional, judging by the amount of traffic. A work of art it is not. Attractive itt could, when viewed from the distance of another bridge nearby, because it it is part suspension so... More

This is the newest bridge across the bay to Mactan island. The old bridge is two lanes and congested, this is four lane and generally much faster to and from the airport. Cebu is a great city, much nicer than Manila.

This is a nice bridge connecting Cebu City with Mactan Island. It is nice to be able to see out over the water.

Without this bridge , businesses in Mactan would be dead , the traffic would have been triple the magnitude now, transshipment of goods from Cebu Mainland to Mactan and vice versa would have taken longer time, going to the airport ,you will need may be 12 hour leadtime. It may seem just an ordinary bridge ,functionally its very important.

There's nothing much to say. It's just an ordinary bridge. When we passed, there was too much traffic.

The Marcelo Fernan Bridge is a major contributor to ease the traffic congestion between Cebu and Mactan. Before, it was simply the old bridge that served as a link between the 2 islands. But history showed the need at least 2 more. The bridge is one of the widest and longest bridge spans in the Philippines. A majestic bridge for... More

The bridge is the fortress of Cebu Island leading to the cities of Mandaue and Cebu and other neighbouring cities like Talisay, Naga, Carcar, etc. Great views of the strait and Mactan Island and Mandaue City.

I guess I didn't see the 'big deal' of this bridge by driving on it with our tour guide, but if you think about a gigantic bridge being connected over islands, well, that is impressive in my book. It's very modern, as people say, and seemed to be the fastest route to where we needed to go. I'm sure the... More
