The Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway (CCLEX) is set to be opened tomorrow, and as expected, its use will be bound by toll fees.
Ahead of its inauguration, the CCLEX toll fees which are still subject to approval by the Local Toll Regulatory Council have been announced.
The proposed fees are as follows:
- Class I (Cars, Jeepneys, Pick-ups, Vans, Motorcycles) = PHP 90.00
- Class I vehicles with above 7ft in height (except when the top load are recreational equipment such as bikes, surfboards, and the like which must be securely fastened and not intended for commercial use) = PHP 180.00
- Class II (Light trucks, Tourist/School, and Public Utility buses) – PHP 180.00
- Class III (Heavy and Multi-Axled Trucks and Trailers) – PHP 270.00
CCLEX toll information
This information was allegedly disclosed by Atty. Ben Cabrido. He has likewise suggested to CCLEX Operator, Cebu Cordova Link Expressway Corporation (CCLEC), that a special and lower PHP 50.00 toll fee be collected from motorcycles who will use the expressway. We earlier reported that motorbikes 125cc and above will be allowed to traverse the length of the bridgeway, thereby making it a road for all, motor vehicles, bicycles, and people alike. Bicycles and pedestrians may use CCLEX free of charge.
If the various Cebu-based sources online from which these prices were gathered are correct, we should have a final toll fee matrix by the end of today or early tomorrow.
With another infrastructure project coming to fruition, we can remain hopeful that it will help with better vehicular traffic flow, and that we can all continue enjoying better roads for traveling between different areas of the Philippines.
Do you think the CCLEX toll prices are fair? Will it stop you from using it? We think they’re reasonable.
