Pres. Duterte to Attend Groundbreaking Ceremony of the Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway (CCLEX)


The tough-talking President of the Republic of the Philippines, Pres. Rody Duterte will attend the groundbreaking ceremony of the Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway (CCLEX), the third bridge connecting Mactan Island to mainland Cebu.


Pres. Duterte and other Cabinet officials confirmed their attendance in the groundbreaking ceremony of CCLEX this coming March 2, 2017. Former Cordova Mayor Adelino Sitoy, the current head of Presidential Legislative Liaison Office (PLLO) confirmed the news to local media in Cebu City.

The P30-billion Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway, the third bridge linking mainland Cebu Province to the island of Mactan is scheduled for a groundbreaking ceremony that took years to materialize.

The eight kilometers CCLEX is considered as one of the major infrastructure projects of the Duterte administration outside Metro Manila. It will serve as an alternate route in going to and from the Mactan Cebu International Airport.


The CCLEX project will be built, managed, and operated by Metro Pacific Toolways Development Corportation (MPTDC). It is estimated to cu off travel time for those coming from mainland Cebu going to the international airport, one of the busiest international terminal outside of Metro Manila.

Pres. Duterte's bridge project will span eight kilometers from the mouth of the Guadalupe River to Shell Island then to the municipality of Cordova. It includes the construction of a toll plaza and causeway. The project is set to be completed in 2020.

According to former Cordova Mayor during an interview with the local media in Cebu, he will try to bring President Duterte to the South Road Properties (SRP) so he can get a view of Shell Island and the flag that will be used in the groundbreaking.

Pres. Duterte will visit Cebu City for the groundbreaking of the third bridge and he will be accompanied by some prominent Cabinet officials who already expressed their interest in attending the event.
