Metro Pacific Investments Corporation has awarded the Cebu Link Joint Venture (CLJV) the contract to design and build the 8.5-kilometer Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway (CCLEX) project. CLJV is composed of Spanish company Acciona Construccion S. A. and Filipino companies First Balfour, and D. M. Consunji Inc. A landmark project, CCLEX will connect the main Cebu City industrial area to Mactan Island via the municipality of Cordova. The expressway will have two lanes in each direction and will feature the main twin cable-stayed bridge, viaduct approach bridges, a causeway, and toll facilities. The link is expected to serve at least 40,000 vehicles daily and is seen to help decongest the traffic in the two existing bridges between Mactan and Cebu. Construction is expected to begin by the second quarter of 2018.
