Cebu City Transportation Office Head (CCTO) Rafael Yap recently announced that jeepneys from Mandaue will no longer be allowed to pass through J. Panis St. The jeepneys will enter Gaisano Country Mall through the right turning lane close to the Mahiga Bridge and use the vehicle exit of the mall in turning left along Gov. M. Cuenco Ave. on their way back to A.S. Fortuna St. Yap said the no-left-turn policy is to reduce congestion along the area.
On October 7, San Miguel Brewery will hold the Oktoberfest Beer and Music Festival at the Mactan Export Processing Zone (MEPZ) Football Field. Due to this, moderate to heavy traffic can be expected from late afternoon to early evening along M.L. Quezon National Highway. Travelers going to Mactan International Airport are advised to add an hour or two in their travel time to avoid missing their flights.

From October 7 to 9, the Miraculous Image of Mama Mary of Lindogon, Simala will be brought to Cebu City for the first time. At least 5,000 devotees are expected to visit the International Eucharistic Celebration (IEC) Pavilion and the Basilica Minore del Sto. Niño for the event. A Halad Concert for Mama Mary will also be held at the Pavillion on October 7 at 7:30 PM. Thus, motorists should brace for moderate to heavy traffic along Pope John Paul II Ave. and the Colon area during said dates.
