Mayor Ahong Chan, for his part, said that they are currently negotiating with the residents who will be impacted by the skyway’s alignment. (

“We will try our best that not many residents will be affected by the alignment,” added Chan.

LLEX will link the Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway, which ends in Barangay Gabi, Cordova, to the Mactan-Cebu International Airport in Lapu-Lapu City.
