Third bridge con­trac­tor gets to use City lot in Er­mita

Sun.Star Cebu - - TOP STORIES - / RVC

The Cebu Link Joint Ven­ture (CLJV) can now pro­ceed with the con­struc­tion of the Cebu-Cor­dova Link Ex­press­way (CCLEX) after the City Coun­cil au­tho­rized Mayor Tomas Os­meña to sign the deed of usufruct to use a City prop­erty in Barangay Er­mita.

The viaduct com­po­nent of the CCLEX project, com­monly known as the third bridge project, will oc­cupy a por­tion of Lot 4, Block 31.

Fran­cisco “Bimbo” Fer­nan­dez, the mayor’s ex­ec­u­tive as­sis­tant, said the City is al­low­ing CCLEX to use the area as part of its com­mit­ment to sup­port the project.

The small multi-pur­pose of­fice owned by the City that stands on the lot will be de­mol­ished, he said.

Un­der the joint-ven­ture agree­ment that the City en­tered with CLJV, the for­mer will al­low posses­sion and use of pub­lic lands as may be re­quired by the CCLEX project.

The City will also be re­spon­si­ble for pro­vid­ing the right of way of the CCLEX project on pub­lic land, in­clud­ing all in­ci­den­tal costs re­quired in re­mov­ing and clear­ing struc­tures and re­set­tling oc­cu­pants, if there are any.

The third bridge will con­nect Cebu City to Cor­dova town in Mac­tan Is­land.

The CCLEX project is ex­pected to be com­pleted by 2021.
