CEBU City Mayor Michael Rama is delighted to know that business tycoon Manny Pangilinan is now considering investing P1 billion in the construction of additional ramps for the Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway (CCLEX).

In a report from the Cebu City Public Information Office on Tuesday, September 20, 2022, Rama said Pangilinan’s plan will further make the Singapore-like vision for Cebu City a reality.

The mayor also welcomed Pangilinan’s enthusiasm to further pursue the proposed Metro Cebu Expressway project from Naga City to Danao City but without compromising the protection of watershed areas.

“These will further help us realize soon our vision for a Singapore-like Cebu City, nine years in just three years,” said Rama.

When Rama traveled to Manila last August 9 to conduct his “investment begging,” the mayor reminded the business tycoon about the original plan of CCLEX to include a ramp that will connect Barangay Guadalupe.

Several days after the inauguration of CCLEX, Rama had already vowed to push for the construction of the additional ramp.
