|Bohol-Cebu Friendship Bridge design|
If the new Bohol Airport which construction will start this month took decades before it got implemented, the proposed Bohol-Cebu Friendship bridge is forecast not to take that long considering the economic viability of the project.
Rep. Aumentado is scheduled to meet interested investors of the project which is estimated to cost some $2.5 billion using a floating bridge technology with an viaduct. Because of the huge investment in implementing the project, the fund is expected to come from private investors who at this early stage found the economic viability of the project.
The solon said private investors have shown interest in the project. He even quoted some investors saying the bridge to be more economically viable than the new airport in Panglao.
