Cebu-Cordova Bridge to use electronic toll system

THE Cebu–Cordova Link Expressway (CCLEX), also known as Cebu-Cordova Bridge, will use radio frequency identification (RFID) as its electronic toll collection system.

The RFID will be in the form of stickers, making the process cashless and contactless at CCLEX, which is managed by Cebu Cordova Link Expressway Corp.

RFID is a wireless system comprising two components: tags and readers. According to the US Food and Drug Administration, the reader is a “device that has one or more antennas that emit radio waves and receive signals back from the RFID tag, while tag uses “radio waves to communicate their identity and other information to nearby readers, can be passive or active.”

As of Sept. 30, 2021, the construction progress of the 8.9-kilometer CCLEX project is at 85.38 percent.

The P30-billion toll bridge will be completed by the end of 2021. It will use an all electronic toll collection system when it opens in the first quarter of 2022 to provide motorists safe and seamless travel.

The project recently achieved a major milestone with the construction completion of the CCLEX main bridge.

On October 5, 2021, the final segment of the 390-meter deck was concreted, covering the remaining two-meter gap. This means Cebu City and the Municipality of Cordova are connected by the bridge. (JOB)
