  • In a statement, the 8.9-kilometer expressway was opened to the public at 5:08 p.m. last April 30.

    According to the CCLEC, vehicles classified under Classes 1 to 3 are allowed to use the expressway as of the moment. Motorcycles that have engines below 400cc displacement are not yet allowed to ply the new road until July 2022 as the company is putting safety measures in place for them.

    Apart from that, pedestrians and bikers are also still not allowed to use the CCLEX until July.

    Relatedly, CCLEC shared that it is also still looking into how much of a discount to give to motorcycles under 400cc.

    It can be recalled that the move to allow motorcycles under 400cc is backed by a resolution approved by the CCLEX Bridge Management Board (BMB). Aside from Alfon, the CCLEX BMB is made up of Cebu City Mayor Michael Rama, and Cordova Municipality Mayor Mary Therese Sitoy-Cho.

    “Registration of motorcycles 125cc to 399cc, however, will still be announced at a later date. The sidewalk for pedestrians and bikers, which are free to use, will be opened in July this year,” CCLEC added.

    While it has a maximum speed limit of 80kph, CCLEX asked the motoring public to drive only up to 60kph during initial operations as part of safety measures.

    “Motorists should not stop at any area in the entire stretch of the expressway. Cash payments will be accepted in the meantime and motorists are advised to prepare the exact toll fare,” the statement added.
