Cordova, Cebu
March 2, 2017

President Rodrigo Roa Duterte flew to the province of Cebu and led the ceremonial groundbreaking of the Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway (CCLEX) at the Virlo Public Market in Barangay Dapitan, Cordova.

The CCLEX is a public-private-partnership (PPP) project initiated by the local governments of Cebu City and the Municipality of Cordova, together with the Metro Pacific Tollways Development Corporation (MPTDC) led by its Chairman, Mr. Manuel ‘Manny’ Pangilinan.

The 8.25-kilometer bridge will connect mainland Cebu and Cordova, which is expected to greatly ease traffic congestion in the city and will make Cordova the main gateway for island tourism (in Cebu, Bohol, and the Visayas region).
