Next year, CAVITEX and C5 will only be 8-minutes apart. This is after the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) inspected the ongoing construction progress of the new CAVITEX C5 Link expressway, saying the thoroughfare should open to motorists as scheduled in 2022.
“With the progress we have seen on-site today, we are optimistic that the CAVITEX C5 link Segment will be completed as planned,” said public works secretary, Mark Villar.
The inspection team of the DPWH, checked the progress of the ongoing construction of the CAVITEX C5 Link ramp. It is part of Segment 2 that is a 1.9-km, 2x3 lane portion that will soon connect CAVITEX R1 to Sucat, bypassing Sucat Road and Quirino Avenue in Paranaque.
The team also went to the construction site of Segment 3 A2, which is a 1.6-km, 2x3 lane portion that will connect Merville to RSG Subdivision in Pasay. CAVITEX C5 Link is a segment of the Manila-Cavite Toll Expressway Project, a joint venture project of CIC and the Philippine Reclamation Authority.
Set to open as early as the Q1 of 2022, the new expressway is expected to serve around 50,000 vehicles daily, and should cut travel time from Bacoor Cavite to C5 Taguig, in as little as 8-minutes through the 7.7-kilometer expressway link that will connect R1 to C5.
Back in March, we were given a glimpse of what the project will look like once it is completed. Read more here.
