Just recently, Cavitex Infrastructure Corporation (CIC), a subsidiary of Metro Pacific Tollways Corporation (MPTC), presented their plans and progress for their ongoing and upcoming projects, respectively.
Besides some new traffic schemes that they have already implemented, CIC also presented a video of how the future CAVITEX-C5 Link Expressway will look and work.
Besides cutting travel time from CAVITEX to C5 and vice versa significantly, the future expressway also features 4 interchanges, namely C5, Merville Sucat, Amvel Business Park, and CAVITEX.
It's not all out ground level. There will be 3 flyovers. The first will go above Merville, which will then land on the property inside the Manila International Airport near the radar area. The second will go above Multinational Village until it lands in Amvel. Finally, a third flyover will go above Dr. A. Santos Avenue and meet with the CAVITEX interchange.
The C5 Link Expressway is compromised of Segments 2 and 3. Segment 2 is a 1.9-kilometer, expressways with 3-lanes on both sides from CAVITEX (R1) Expressway to a proposed interchange at Sucat Segment 3A-2. A sub-section of Segment 3 is a 1.6-kilometer, expressway with two 3-lane sides from Merville to RSG (Airport View) Subdivision in Parañaque.
Upon completion, this PhP15-B project is expected to serve 50,000 cars and reduce travel time to Makati and Taguig from Parañaque City, Las Pinas City, and Cavite from an hour to about 10 minutes, and will play a huge role in economic development.
CIC aims to complete the construction of Segment 2 and Segment 3A-2 of C5 Link Expressway in second quarter of 2022.
