The Cebu Cordova Link Expressway Corporation (CCLEC) has resumed its RFID installation for the 8.9-kilometer Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway (CCLEX).
The resumption came a month after Typhoon Odette battered Cebu, putting the brakes on the activity as the severe weather disturbance downed power infrastructure and internet connectivity.
On January 17, 2022, CCLEC resumed installing CCLEX RFID in the following locations:
• SM Seaside City Cebu
• Il Corso Lifemalls by Filinvest
• Robinsons Galleria Cebu
Vehicle owners who have previously registered but were affected by the suspension of the CCLEX RFID installation can now conveniently and easily reschedule their appointments through the “Manage Appointment” tab on the CCLEX website or visit https://mptc.outsystemsenterprise.com/ORRAS/.
CCLEC is also preparing the resumption of operations in other installation sites so it can cater to more motorists soon. These additional sites will be announced through CCLEX’s official Facebook page @CCLEXexpressway.
The P30-billion CCLEX will use an all-electronic toll collection system when it opens in the first quarter of 2022 to provide motorists safe and seamless travel.
Construction progress of the project is now at 90 percent.
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.
CCLEX, which will be the third link to Mactan Island from Cordova Municipality to mainland Cebu through Cebu City’s South Road Properties, has a design speed of 80 kilometers per hour (kph) and a navigational clearance or height of 51 meters 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 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.
