First ever skyway in the Visayas and Mindanao will soon rise in Lapu-Lapu city.

The Lapu-Lapu Expressway (LLEX) will connect from the airport to the third bridge which is believed to lessen the congestion of traffic in the city as well as the travel time of the motorist coming from the airport going to the Cebu south road properties (SRP) to seven minutes.

Chan added that the said project will pave the way for the city’s economic growth as this will invite more investors and offer more jobs to the citizens. This will also become a stepping stone for more tourist spots to rise in the city. 

If approved, the LLEX will be done under a private-public partnership (PPP) arrangement, which will be ventured by Premium Megastructure, Inc (PMI), Ulticon Builders, Inc., and MTD Philippines, Inc.

On December 9, the Lapu-Lapu City Council referred the proposal back to Ahong Chan as it needs to clarify some concerns. The council also added that barangays affected were not consulted by the city.

The City Council has also raised concerns on the project’s toll fee, the annual gross revenue share of the city, road right of way, among others.
