“We're thrilled about this CALAX expansion, which will not only make life easier for our motorists but also boost the local economy. By providing a quicker and more convenient route to popular destinations in Cavite, we’re creating opportunities for businesses to thrive and for families to make the most of their time together,” said Raul Ignacio, President and General Manager of MHI.

The Silang-Aguinaldo HWY Interchange will play a significant role in decongesting the busiest highway in Cavite, offering a faster route to the emerging tourism destinations of Silang town and Tagaytay City. It is expected to cater to an additional 5,000 motorists daily, providing them with convenient access to these vibrant areas.

Looking ahead, CALAX will further expand to a total of 45 kilometers by 2024 and will feature 8 interchanges: Technopark, Laguna Boulevard, Santa Rosa-Tagaytay Road, Silang East, Silang-Aguinaldo, Governor's Drive, Open Canal, and Kawit Interchange. CALAX will eventually connect to the Manila-Cavite Expressway (CAVITEX) in Kawit, uniting key regions seamlessly. Presently, its operational segments span from Mamplasan Rotunda up to Silang East Interchange.

MPTC is the leading mobility infrastructure and solutions provider in the Philippines. It is the toll road development arm of Metro Pacific Investments Corporation (MPIC). Aside from CALAX and CAVITEX, MPTC also holds the concession rights for North Luzon Expressway (NLEX), NLEX Connector Road, Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX), and Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway (CCLEX) in Cebu.
