PATROL officers of the Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway (CCLEX) can now flag down and issue temporary operators permit (TOP) to motorists who would violate traffic rules while traversing the expressway.

The Land Transportation Office (LTO)-Central Visayas formally turned over the TOPs to 16 deputized patrol crews of CCLEX Thursday, September 1, 2022.

Mareon Therese Miole, operations manager of the CCLEX Corporation, said their personnel underwent training about road safety and traffic rules and regulations.

"We are partnering with them (LTO) in our advocacy which is really on road safety. This is the start of our partnership and future coordination with LTO 7," said Miole.

The patrol crews started their training last May 2022 wherein they underwent practical and written examinations, she added.

Miole also said that the management of the expressway is working on the vista points where motorists can safely take pictures of the iconic bridge. (IRT)
