Contractors Finish Main Bridge Pylons for Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway
The two main bridge pylons of the 8.5-kilometre Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway (CCLEX) are already finished. According to the Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway Corp. (CCLEC), “We finished over the weekend the concreting of the pylon on the side of Cebu City.”
The firm said that Tower 1 has reached its final height at 145 meters, meaning that the two pylons are already complete. The firm has also started installing the cross on top of the pylons of the CCLEX’s main bridge. Last month, the firm has also finished the construction of Tower 2 on the side of the Cordova town.
Senior Research Manager at Colliers Philippines said the 3rd bridge - set to be finished later this year - will further boost the economic growth of the city.
Once finished, this bridge will connect Cebu City to Mactan Island through Cordova and will also ease traffic.
A subsidiary of Metro Pacific Tollways Corporation, CCLEC is undertaking the bridge project under a joint venture agreement with Cebu City and Cordova, a municipality to the south of Mactan.
