The Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway Corp. is planning to invest P1 billion to open a new ramp along the 8.9-kilometer Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway that would provide motorists direct access to the province’s main business district and generate more economic activities.
CCLEC president and general manager Allan Alfon said the company is only awaiting the local government to come up with an ordinance to officially proceed with the plan.
“There are proposals at the table to extend the expressway but for me what is more urgent now is the Guadalupe ramp. The Cebu City is looking at reviving the Guadalupe ramp exit and entry. In effect, if that is realized, then more tourists coming from the island,” Alfon said.
The Guadalupe ramp would be two-kilometer extension that has a “rough estimate” of P1 billion in project cost. It can potentially add around 10,000 to 12,000 daily vehicle traffic along the toll road.
“Now, a lot of constructions are being started in Cordova. We believe that this provides the sustainable volume for traffic to increase. Once you have more constructions in Cordova and the island of Mactan, then we would have more motorists coming from Class 2 during the construction,” Alfon said.
He stressed that CCLEC is eyeing to close the year with 20,000 daily vehicle traffic from the current 12,500 amid the revival of tourism activities and resumption of physical work and school setups.
