The Cebu Cordova Link Expressway Corporation (CCLEC) confirmed Sunday its intention to extend its bridge project to Mactan Cebu International Airport (MCIA).
In an exclusive talk with The Daily Tribune, CCLEC President and General Manager Allan Go Alfon said, “Yes, our company would like to pursue this project to extend CCLEX up to the airport.”
“The skyway roughly is 7 kilometers but all are still for refinement on alignments, costs included. We’re most confident of getting support from Mayor Ahong (Chan) of Lapu-Lapu City as we look forward to collaborate with him and his team closely,” Alfon added.
Mayor Junard Chan, in a recent interview, disclosed that a skyway is to be constructed linking Cordova to Mactan airport.
“Imagine, from SM seaside at the South Road Properties (SRP) in Cebu City to Mactan airport, you would travel in just 15 minutes,” Chan said of the skyway’s benefit.
“Timeline to start hopefully in 2 or 3 years, once all government legal and documentary requirements met,” Alfon revealed.
CCLEC is a subsidiary of the Metro Pacific Investments Corporation (MPIC), a member of the MVP Group of Companies.
CCLEC is currently constructing the 8.5-kilometer Cebu-Cordova Link Exchange (CCLEX) that will link the town of Cordova in Mactan Island with the Cebu mainland, including the SRP in Cebu City.
As of October 2020, construction of the bridge is 63.43 percent complete.
Once completed, the bridge is expected to decongest traffic in the two existing bridges of Sergio “Serging” Osmeña Jr. and Marcelo Fernan going to and from the MCIA.
