The Puntod Section of the Cagayan de Oro Coastal Road near Solid Shipping Lines Warehouse which was designed to decongest traffic at Agora area is now a huge parking area with its 4 lanes reduced to just 2 lanes as illegally parked vehicles occupy the outer lanes.

Traffic in this section is currently designated as a one-way street from Valenzuela Avenue to Corrales Extension as construction of Gaabucayan Bridge and approach remains unfinished. All vehicles particularly large trailer trucks use this road due to the re-routing scheme but as shown, the road’s effectiveness has been greatly reduced with the outer lanes now used for parking. Yet, the area has not been cleared of said illegally parked vehicles.
