Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway (CCLEX)

Construction Progress

As of July 31, 2021, the construction progress of the Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway (CCLEX) is at 82 percent.

The P30-billion toll bridge, which will be substantially completed by end of 2021, will use a full electronic toll system when it opens to motorists in the first quarter of 2022 to enable faster traffic flow and seamless travel.

Works at the main bridge continue to progress with only 56 meters left before the gap of the 390-meter bridge deck will be fully closed while 52 out of the 56 cables have already been installed.

Construction of the substructures for the Cebu South Coastal Road (CSCR) on the ramp and off-ramp sections of the project, on the other hand, is now complete. Girder installation for the remaining spans is ongoing as well as the installation of precast planks and concreting of the carriageway or road deck.

We have also finished building the 200-meter pedestrian footbridge beside the CSCR with all six prefabricated steel walkways already installed. The footbridge will start near the U-turn slot of the South Road Properties’ welcome tower and will connect to the on-ramp sidewalk of CCLEX.

At the Cebu viaduct, construction of the road deck is underway while installation of handrails and ducting is ongoing at the Cordova viaduct, following the completion of its substructure.

Embankment works are simultaneously being done at the causeway section of CCLEX.

The placing of 20 vent pipes along the causeway’s stretch are now complete. These vent pipes will equalize the flow of seawater in the Cordova Channel.

Aside from these, embankment and piling works are ongoing for the toll plaza and the CCLEX Operations and Maintenance Center.

CCLEX, highlighted by its iconic crosses on top of the twin pylons of the cable-stayed main bridge over the Mactan Channel, is Metro Pacific Tollways Corporation’s (MPTC) first toll road project outside Luzon.

It will be the third link to Mactan Island from Cordova Municipality to mainland Cebu through Cebu City’s South Road Properties. CCLEX has a design speed of 80 kilometers per hour (kph) and a navigational clearance or height of 51 meters so as to allow large vessels to pass underneath the bridge.

Not only is CCLEX seen to reduce traffic and make traveling more convenient but also spur trade activities and open greater economic opportunities for Cebu and the rest of the Visayas region.

CCLEX is a project of Cebu Cordova Link Expressway Corporation (CCLEC), in partnership with the local government units of Cebu City and Municipality of Cordova.
CCLEC is a wholly-owned subsidiary of MPTC, the toll road arm of Metro Pacific Investments Corporation (MPIC), a publicly listed infrastructure holding company and a member of the MVP Group of Companies.

MPTC is the largest toll road concessionaire and operator in the Philippines, which expansion goals include establishing toll operations in the Visayas, other parts of the Philippines, and in neighboring countries notably Vietnam, and Indonesia.
