Metro Pacific starts installation of RFID stickers for CCLEX

Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway (CCLEX) — CCLEX.COM.PH

THE Cebu Cordova Link Expressway Corp. (CCLEC), the private company behind the Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway (CCLEX), has started inviting motorists to have their vehicles installed with radio-frequency identification (RFID) stickers in preparation for the opening of the project in the first quarter of 2022.

“The P30-billion toll bridge, which will be substantially completed by the end of 2021, will use an all-electronic toll collection system when it opens in the first quarter of 2022 to provide motorists safe and seamless travel,” the company said on its website.

CCLEC is a subsidiary of Metro Pacific Tollways Corp. (MPTC), the tollways arm of Metro Pacific Investments Corp. (MPIC). The toll bridge project is being undertaken in partnership with the City of Cebu and the Municipality of Cordova.

“People can now register online for the installation of the RFID stickers that they will need in order to use the CCLEX, the first toll expressway in this part of the country,” CCLEC and MPTC said in a statement on Monday.

A bridge connection ceremony was held on Friday last week led by MPTC Chairman Manuel V. Pangilinan and key Cebu government officials.

“We are happy to bring to Cebuanos this contactless and cashless payment through RFID when using our expressway as part of our vision to modernize the country’s transport sector and as part of our commitment to nation-building,” Mr. Pangilinan said.

The toll bridge, which is seen to increase economic activities in Cebu and throughout the Visayas region, is the “longest and tallest” bridge in the Philippines, spanning 8.9 kilometers, CCLEC said.

As of September, construction progress of the project was at 86%, it noted.

MPIC is one of three key Philippine units of First Pacific, the others being Philex Mining Corp. and PLDT, Inc. Hastings Holdings, Inc., a unit of PLDT Beneficial Trust Fund subsidiary MediaQuest Holdings, Inc., has a majority stake in BusinessWorld through the Philippine Star Group, which it controls. — Arjay L.
