Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Secretary Mark Villar announced the opening of the first section of the Cavitex C5 South Link, which is part of the greater Cavitex C5 link expressway. This 2.2-kilometer stretch of road is a flyover crossing South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) traversing Taguig and Pasay City.
We are supportive of road engineering solutions for everyday problems. This is a vital project that will cut travel time in half from the usual 1.5 hours spent to cross from Villamor Airbase, Pasay area to Taguig City. With 3 lanes in each direction of this flyover, passage of the anticipated 8,000 vehicles will be eased when they use the flyover starting 8:00PM sharp tonight (as of July 23, 2019)

This P1.6-billion flyover is now passable by vehicles going from Fort Bonifacio, C.P Garcia (C5), Taguig City, Paranaque City, Las Pinas City, and Pasay City. The Southlink features a bridge that crosses over Skyway and SLEX. The C5 Southlink is expected to reduce traffic in Sales interchange near Villamor Airbase. The flyover is also expected to decongest SLEX East and West services roads and EDSA allowing for better flow along these roads.
This is the second partnership between Metro Pacific Tollways Corporation to open this year following the success of the NLEX Harbor Link segment 10 in February of 2019. With this new addition to infrastructure, surely traffic around the metro will start to decongest especially along EDSA.
CIC President Roberto V. Bonita foresees that Cavitex C5 Link Expressway will experience about 50,000 vehicles a day passing through the thoroughfare. This will result in the ease of traffic around Metro Manila as well as ease the journey of motorists traveling from the Paranaque toll plaza to the C5 Taguig City area. He hopes that this new Cavitex Link Expressway can reduce travel time between Paranaque and Taguig down to 10 minutes.
