President Rodrigo Roa Duterte led the inauguration of the P33 billion Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway (CCLEX) on Wednesday, April 27, which is expected to boost the province's economy and improve people's mobility in the Visayas region.

During the inauguration rites, President Duterte thanked Metro Pacific Tollways Corp., Cebu Cordova Link Expressway Corp., and the Cebu City and Cordova local government units for the completion of the province's new iconic monument.

PRRD told them that their support for the administration's aim of boosting regional development, providing a pleasant living for every Filipino, and realizing our vision of a firmly connected nation is truly admirable, as is their commitment to ensuring the huge task's accomplishment.

He noted that it is also an ideal and pertinent time to launch the CCLEX, as it coincides with the 500th anniversary of the Filipino forefathers' triumph in Mactan.

The President is pleased to see the forefathers' tenacity and commitment resonating in the Filipino people today as the CCLEX opens to the public.

President Duterte stated that the cutting-edge infrastructure will alleviate Metro Cebu's perennial traffic problems and that its completion will result in increased economic productivity as well as safer and faster mobility of goods and people in the Visayas region.

The President also reaffirmed his commitment to making life more comfortable for all Filipinos through sustainable, safe, and dependable infrastructure for better mobility and transportation, particularly as the country's urban spaces shrink.

“Once again, I assure you that no Filipino will be left behind as we steadfastly and collectively work towards a stronger and a progressive nation,” he said.

The 8.9-kilometer CCLEX connects Cordova town on Mactan Island to the South Road Properties in Cebu City and is regarded as an engineering marvel.

It was built in collaboration with the Municipality of Cordova and the City of Cebu by the Cebu Cordova Link Expressway Corp., a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Metro Pacific Tollways Corp. (MPTC). —Tacloban News Update (Source: PND)
