CCLEX will use radio frequency for the toll system


THE third bridge’s fully electronic toll system will use radio frequency identification (RFID), Cebu Cordova Link Expressway Corporation (CCLEC) said.

It will come in the form of stickers, making the process cashless and contactless.

According to the United States Food and Drug Administration, RFID is defined as a wireless system consisting of two components: tags and readers.

“The reader is a device with one or more antennas that emit radio waves and receive signals from the RFID tag. Tags, which use radio waves to communicate their identity and other information to nearby readers, can be passive or active, ”he added. said in his website.

As of September 30, 2021, the construction progress of the 8.9 kilometer CCLEX project was 85.38%.

The 30 billion peso toll bridge, which will be largely completed by the end of 2021, will use a fully electronic toll system when it opens in the first quarter of 2022 to provide motorists with safe and smooth journeys.

The project recently reached an important milestone with the completion of the construction of the CCLEX main deck.

On October 5, 2021, the last segment of the 390-meter deck was concreted, covering the remaining space by two meters. This meant finally connecting the city of Cebu and the municipality of Cordova.

With the end of the construction of the main bridge, all of the form travelers used to build its jetty table and bridge were already lowered.

The 56 shrouds holding the deck were installed last month.

In addition, the 434 NU (Nebraska University) beams for the entire project were already in place and the mobile launching gantry used to install them has been dismantled.

Work on the other segments of the CCLEX project continues to progress.

The South Cebu Coastal Road (CSCR) substructures on the ramp and exit sections of CCLEX are now complete. The work in progress covers the installation of prefabricated boards and the concreting of the deck slab.

The 200-meter pedestrian walkway next to the CSCR is also completed with the six prefabricated steel walkways already installed. The walkway begins near the turn-around slot of the South Road Properties welcome tower and will connect to the CCLEX access sidewalk.

At the Cebu Viaduct, construction of the deck slab is underway. The Cordoba Viaduct, on the other hand, is now structurally complete with its already made substructure. The installation of handrails and conduits is in progress.

At the causeway, work continues with the construction of concrete safety barriers and the installation of sidewalk handrails. The laying of 20 ventilation pipes, which equalize the flow of seawater along the Cordoba Canal, has been completed.

The four low-level bridges along the causeway are also structurally completed, which will allow fishermen to have continuous access to their fishing grounds.

Apart from these, work is underway for the toll booth and the CCLEX operation and maintenance center. (EMPLOYMENT with RP)
