Thanks for the comments about Cebu.
If you have noticed names to add or correct, please add them.

I try to add road names when I can, but I'm "local" since 5 years only. I still need to rely on road name signs, and they are quite rare in many parts of Cebu. I also used shop signboards, but its difficult to drive and look out of the passenger window at the same time ^_^ 

So often I just add the road without name, hoping that others, eventually without GPS, will add them...

Regarding the separate ways, I started to add them in Mactan and Mandaue. I come less often in the center/south of Cebu city, so I don't have reliable traces of both lanes. But little by little I correct the double carriage ways there too.

Unfortunately there is no satellite imagery available here, so all needs to be traced by GPS.
