セブとコルドバを結ぶ65億円のプロジェクト

フィリピン最大のインフラ整備のプロジェクトが進んでいます。

このプロジェクトは、メトロセブの深刻な問題となっていたメトロセブの交通渋滞を緩和することを目的に始まりました。

マクタン島にある自治体によって、日本円にしておおよそ65億円の資金を投じて建設されています。

またこのプロジェクトは単に、渋滞緩和を目的としたものではなく、ビサヤ地域や、本土であるセブ島の観光の主要な玄関口として、コルドバが位置付けられています。

早く完成することで、経済成長や貿易活動がより活発になり、雇用の創出が生まれることを願うばかりです!

The Php30-Billion Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway (CCLEX) Project

The CCLEX is a PHP30-billion toll bridge that will link mainland Cebu from the SRP in Cebu City to Mactan Island through the municipality of Cordova.

Set to be a new landmark in the country, CCLEX will have two lanes in each direction that will provide a safe, quick and scenic passage to an estimated 50,000 vehicles daily, easing the traffic in the existing Marcelo Fernan Bridge and the Mandaue-Mactan Bridge.

CCLEX has a design speed of 80 kilometers per hour (kph) and a navigational clearance or height of 51 meters so as to allow large vessels to pass underneath the bridge.

In a statement, the 8.5-kilometer Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway (CCLEX) project is now 70% complete and is expected to be substantially completed by the end of 2021 and open to motorists in the first quarter of 2022.

Benefits of Cebu-Cordova Bridge

One of the biggest infrastructure projects in the Philippines, CCLEX is expected to ensure improved connectivity and reduce traffic congestion in Metro Cebu. It will also support tourism growth by positioning Cordova as the major gateway for island tourism in Bohol, the Visayas region and mainland Cebu.

The expressway bridge will serve as an alternative route between Cebu City and the Mactan-Cebu International Airport, reducing the travel time by approximately 40 minutes.

The Cebu-Cordova toll bridge is intended to further improve economic growth and trade activities in Cebu Province, as well as create new employment opportunities for local residents.
