Cemex pivotal on CCLEX construction

Cemex recently announced that it was the sole supplier of cement for the construction of the longest bridge in the Philippines — as it supplied nearly 70,000 metric tons of cement for the construction of the Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway, a milestone project for the country.

CCLEX connects Cebu City to the municipality of Cordova on Mactan Island and spans a total of 8.9 kilometers standing on twin tower pylons reaching 145 meters in height.

The bridge, which opened to traffic in 2022, is expected to provide a safer and more efficient route for approximately 50,000 vehicles every day, seeking to improve the quality of life for residents of the area.

“Cemex has been a proud contributor to the development of the Philippines for over a century, and our participation in CCLEX is further proof of our commitment to the country,” Cemex Philippines president Luis Franco, said.

“Projects such as this modernize the country and foster the wellbeing of its residents. Improving the quality of life of the citizens of our communities sits at the core of our purpose — to build a better future,” he added.
