CEBU, Philippines — The Cebu Cordova Link Expressway Corporation (CCLEC) has announced that the implementation of full electronic for toll payments will be extended to another date.

It was supposed to be implemented today, October 1, but due to the request of many motorists, it will be rescheduled.

According to Allan Alfon, president and general manager of CCLEC, they are considering the request of motorists and allow them to get their RFID tags on their vehicles and reload their RFID accounts.

The Cebu Cordova Link Expressway (CCLEX) has 10 toll lanes, one of which is a temporary area that accepts cash for those who have not yet acquired RFID.

The third bridge officials are still finalizing the particular extended days.

Alfon advised motorists to get RFID for faster or easier transactions on the bridge adding that the installation of RFID is free.

“We want to address the strong clamor of many motorists to continue to allow them to pass CCLEX while they are complying with our RFID registration and installation. This is also to prevent long queues of motorists in our Customer Service Centers who might be in a rush to get the RFID stickers,” said Alfon.

CCLEC also encouraged motorists who already have RFID to reload their accounts online through MPT DriveHub, an all-in-one application for that purpose.

One of the features of the application, motorists can easily register or link their RFID account by simply scanning their CCLEX Card QR Code or inputting their CCLEX Card Number, or registering via email.

Aside from the MPT DriveHub app, motorists can also reload their CCLEX RFID at CCLEX Customer Service Centers in the toll plaza. It is open from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily.

Currently, there are more than 90,000 motorists who have installed RFID.

"Our CCLEX is designed to operate as an all-electronic toll collection system for faster and seamless experience when using our modern expressway. This full RFID system is also for the safety of our motorists. We would like to appeal to everyone to get their CCLEX RFIDs now for faster and seamless CCLEX drive,” Alfon added.

CCLEX now has an average of over 10,000 vehicles that pass by every day, and 20 percent of them are motorcycles.

According to the operations manager of CCLEC, Mareon Therese Miole, the bridge has a 24/7 traffic control room. Up to 84 cameras are installed in it. — GMR (FREEMAN)
