Lapu-Lapu City, Cebu will have its first-ever skyway that will link the Mactan-Cebu International Airport to the Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway (CCLEX) or the third bridge, the Lapu-Lapu Expressway (LLEX).
LLEX is under a Private-Public Partnership (PPP) arrangement of Lapu-Lapu city government together with Premium Megastructures, Inc (PMI), Ulticon Builders, Inc., and MTD Philippines, Inc.
The project will cut down on city traffic congestion and lessen the time it takes drivers to get from the airport to the Cebu South Road Properties (SRP) to seven minutes. Secondary gains that LLEX can bring to the city are more economic growth from investors and more traffic on its tourist spots both of which will generate more jobs for its citizens.
The Lapu-Lapu City Government and Lapu-Lapu Expressway (LLEX) Corporation signed a memorandum of agreement on the projected P24.8 billion Lapu-Lapu expressway, at the city’s Charter Day last June 17, 2022, at the Session Hall.
It is anticipated to be operational by 2025, and is predicted to generate economic benefits worth P66.5 billion over the course of 50 years, or 40% of the joint venture’s commercial revenues will be donated to the City’s funds.
