A couple of months ago, the newly-built Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway (CCLEX) began allowing entry of sub-400cc bikes with displacements of at least 125cc.
Starting today, September 14, 2022, the management of CCLEX has lowered the minimum displacement limit to only 110cc. Simply put, scooters like the Honda Beat 110 or Kawasaki’s KSR 110 can now use the tollway.
“The lowering of engine displacement from 125cc to 110cc is to answer the clamor of motorcycle users and make the expressway more inclusive and accessible to more road users,” said the Cebu Cordova Link Expressway Corporation (CCLEC) – the company that manages CCLEX.
The decision also came after careful consideration and simulation inside the CCLEX. Additional safety features were also installed on the expressway. Motorcycles with engine displacements of 110cc to 399cc are considered under Vehicle Class M1. Their toll rate is P60.
Owners of 110cc motorcycles can now start to get their CCLEX RFID at the CCLEX Customer Service Centers near the Toll Plaza, Anjo World, and Landers Superstore for free. Walk-ins are also accepted.
Work on CCLEX started on July 5, 2018, with ceremonies marking the beginning of civil works. It is MPTC’s first toll road project outside Luzon. CCLEX has a design speed of 60 to 80 kilometers per hour (kph) and a navigational clearance or height of 52 meters to allow large vessels to pass underneath the bridge.
CCLEX will use an all-electronic toll collection system. To give more time to motorists to have the RFID sticker installed on their vehicles, cash payments will be accepted in the meantime. The full electronic toll collection will be implemented on October 1, 2022.
