One of the longest bridges in the Philippines is halfway done and, once it’s finished, it is set to become the longest cable-stayed bridge and one of the most beautiful modern bridges in the country. The highlight of the bridge are the illuminated crosses at the top of the two pylons that support the cables and the entire bridge.

In 2017, the Cebu Cordova Link Expressway Corporation, a subsidiary of Metro Pacific Tollways Corporation, awarded the project to the joint venture led by Acciona. The project includes the 650-meter cable-stayed bridge with a span of 390 meters between tower pylons, several viaducts, and a section of the highway on a 5.2-kilometer length embankment.

“By connecting Cebu City to Mactan Island, the expressway will alleviate traffic congestion on the existing bridges and provide a faster connection between Cebu’s industrial zone, Mactan International Airport, and Cordova’s new urban developments, which will further boost the local economy,” said Ruben Camba, Acciona country manager for the Philippines and Southeast Asia.
