Named ‘A bridge for tomorrow’ by National Geographic, the CCLEX project – the longest and tallest bridge in the Philippines – is built to improve the connectivity between Cebu and Mactan Islands and to relieve congestion on the existing inter-island crossings.
The project is intended to boost the local economy and accelerate growth and trade activities in Cebu Province, as well as create new employment opportunities for the residents. The infrastructure is supporting sustainable tourism growth by positioning Cordova as the major gateway for island tourism in the region. The shape of the cable stayed main bridge was developed by the team of engineers and architects to integrate local culture and heritage symbols into the design of the main structural elements
We believe this project is an outstanding example of how the values of FIDIC are implemented in a large infrastructure project in the developing part of the world. The CCLEX project helped bringing new technology as well as learning and development opportunities to a region in need. After opening it improves connectivity and quality of life in the local communities. The project itself is of international standard both in terms of design, procurement and execution. It addresses several of UNs 17 Sustainable Development Goals, including poverty alleviation by providing opportunity, better access to health and educational facilities, sustainable cities by providing improved connectivity and overarching the activities the project and its execution demonstrates a deep respect for the unique environment.
