Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway 

One of the largest infrastructure projects in the Philippines and a landmark for the Cebu Province. Spanning 8 kilometres, the Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway (CCLEX) will connect Cordova to Cebu City, the second largest city in the Philippines. Serving as an alternate route to and from the Mactan Cebu International Airport, the CCLEX is envisioned to enhance economic growth and increase development in the region. With its monumental scale, the bridge is certain to become a local focal point.

The link’s 400 metres cable-stayed main span is supported by two single pylons, rising to a height of 145 metres. Besides the main span bridge with a 60 metres navigation clearance, which allows for shipping traffic, the project includes viaduct approach bridges and a causeway as well as toll road facilities on an artificial island. Expected to serve at least 40,000 vehicles daily, CCLEX will provide a much needed additional route from Cebu City to the Mactan-Cebu International Airport, the second busiest airport in the Philippines.

The 8 kilometres link is designed by an international team lead by local engineers DCCD Engineering Corporation and COWI in collaboration with DISSING+WEITLING architecture, responsible for engineering and technical advice on behalf of the owner, the Metro Pacific Tollways Corporation.
