    Cebu – Cordova Link Expressway

    Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway or CCLEX is an 8.5-kilometer toll bridge that will link mainland Cebu from Cebu City’s South Road Properties to Barangay Pilipog, Cordova Municipality in Mactan island bringing progress not only in the Province of Cebu but the entire Visayas Region.

    The artistically designed expressway, which will have two lanes in each direction, will connect from Cebu City through the Cebu South Coastal Road (CSCR) on and off ramps, which will be constructed along the sides of the existing CSCR viaduct. It will connect to the twin pylon cable-stayed main bridge spanning the navigation path of Mactan Channel, then to a viaduct that brings the bridge to the level of the causeway leading to Barangay Pilipog in Cordova and to an at grade road connecting to Mactan Circumferential Road. The bridge with design speed of 80-90 kilometer per hour (kph) and 51-meter height or navigational clearance for shipping traffic is expected to serve at least 50,000 vehicles daily.


    Current Status

    CLJV, which was issued the Notice to Proceed on January 8, 2018, immediately worked on the Detailed and Engineering Design and started the construction of the project on July 2018.


    Currently, CLJV is working on three main project sites:

    Main Bridge – All piling works for both towers are completed. Pile Cap activities are on-going.

    West – Pile Cap activities for CSCR ON, CSCR OFF ramps, and Cebu Viaduct are on-going. 

    East – The temporary causeway embankment is fully completed and used normally. Access to the Cordova Viaduct piling platforms is granted. Permanent works are on-going.



    General information

    The most awaited major infrastructure project in Cebu – the 8.5-kilometer Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway, or CCLEX, will not just be an additional bridge to link mainland Cebu to Mactan island but would also become an iconic landmark in the region.

    The Notice of Award for the “Build and Design” Contract for CCLEX was issued on November 23, 2017 to Cebu Link Joint Venture (CLJV) and the contract was signed on December 19, 2017. The project is scheduled for completion in 2021.

    Cebu Cordova Link Expressway Corporation (CCLEC), a subsidiary of Metro Pacific Tollways Corporation (MPTC), will implement the construction and oversee the operation of CCLEX through a Joint Venture Agreement with the City of Cebu and Municipality of Cordova. CCLEX will be operated as a toll expressway.

    At the end of the 35-year concession period, the project will be turned over to the two LGU-Grantors.

    The CCLEX Project is valued at 30 billion.


    • Currently one of the largest infrastructure projects in the country, CCLEX will provide alternative link between Mactan Island, where the Mactan-Cebu International Airport (MCIA) is located and Metro Cebu. It will help decongest traffic in the existing two bridges, the Marcelo Fernan Bridge and Mandaue-Mactan Bridge. It will strengthen the carrying capacity of the network of roads in Metro Cebu.
    • Aside from providing travel efficiency, CCLEX is seen to help spur economic growth and boost investments not just in Cebu City and Cordova Municipality, but also in the entire Cebu Province and Visayas Region. The project can create 1,000 direct and indirect jobs, boosts the construction industry in Cebu and benefit local suppliers and sub-contractors during the three-year construction period.
