MPTC eyes Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway completion by 2021

The Metro Pacific Tollways Corp. (MPTC) said that the Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway (CCLEX) is on track to be completed by next year.

In a report by The STAR, MPTC subsidiary Cebu Cordova Link Expressway Corp. (CCLEC) said that the progress of the P30-billion toll bridge project is now at 49.85 percent after the completion of the substructure of the main bridge’s two towers.

CCLEX said that they have successfully conducted the lifting of the 400-ton form traveler for Towers 1 and 2, which will be used for bridge work and to build pier table.

Concreting and construction of columns and piers for the bridge’s on-ramp and bored piling for the off-ramp alongside the Cebu South Coastal Road are also being conducted at the project site. 

The toll bridge project will connect the mainland Cebu from Cebu City’s CSCR to Barangay Pilipog, Cordova in Mactan Island.

Once completed, around 50,000 vehicles are expected to benefit from the expressway everyday, relieving traffic congestion along the Marcelo Fernan Bridge and the Mandaue-Mactan Bridge. – Richmond Mercurio
