Tendering Design of the Cebu – Corbova Link Expressway, in The Philippines.
SENER, integrated in a Design Joint Venture as Main Designer, worked in the preparation of the Tendering Design for the consortium within the tendering process launched by MetroPacific for the construction of the project. The services provided by SENER included:
- Marine works
- Bridges and viaducts except Main Bridge
- Safety barriers
- Toll plaza facilities including buildings.
The Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway Project calls for the construction of a new access to connect the main Cebu City industrial area to the Mactan Cebu International Airport and new developments in Cordova, situated in Mactan Island. The proposed Project establishes a toll road linking Mactan Island to the rest of Cebu province, complying a high standard in regard to safety, comfort and speed. Furthermore, it will decongest traffic in the two existing bridges.
The Project, which has a length of about 8.25 kms, is a combination of long span high level bridge which will span the navigable portion of the Cebu Strait, a viaduct to connect the main bridge over the tidal portion of the island, a causeway over the shallow area, minor bridges and a roadway on embankment. It includes connections as follows: Cebu South Coastal Road (CSCR) viaduct in Cebu City; at-grade connection at Mactan Circumferential Road in Cordova; and at-grade connections at Sanciangko and Padilla Streets in Cebu City.
The typical carriageway cross section consists of four lanes, 3.5 m wide each. Shoulders are 0.50 m wide and outer sidewalks separated by barriers are about 1.70 m wide. The median width is 1.60 m with concrete barriers. The carriageway shall be a flexible pavement motorway with median crossings, emergency parking areas, and guardrails on both sides of the carriageway.
The Project contains other relevant structures: CSCR on/off ramps (500m); Cebu Viaduct (437.64 m), Cordova Viaduct (918.60m), Cordova Reclamation Channel Bridge (180 m), Gabi-Pilipog Bridge (300 m), Fishermen´s Bridge (60 m) and Pilipog Bridge (205 m).
Technical installations (lighting and ITS) are also included in the scope of the project as well as the definition of the iconic toll plaza. The Expressway shall be fully equipped with FOE consisting of automated toll collection, traffic management and telecommunication systems. The Expressway will have some facilities to operate: Technical Service Building, electrical Service Center , pump House, guard House and toll Booths.
The main challenges in the project are the design of the bridges and viaducts, the optimization of the alignment in the interchange of Cebu to minimize the impact on the main bridge and the vertical alignment to reduce the earthworks.
