The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) held a groundbreaking ceremony as the construction of the Cavite-Laguna Expressway (CALAX) kicks off.
DPWH Secretary Mark Villar said CALAX will have 8 interchanges and 1 main toll barrier. He added that CALAX will cut travel time from CAVITEX to SLEX, and vice versa, to 45 minutes.
“The road construction project from Tirona Highway to the end of Greenfield near Mamplasan Exit, Laguna will be closely monitored so that by 2020, our travel time from CAVITEX to SLEX will be reduced to only 45 minutes.”
The CALAX project is part of the 45-kilometer closed system modern tolled expressway that the DPWH awarded to the Metro Pacific Group's MPCALA Holdings. The contract, which involves the construction of a 4-lane highway with 4 interchanges from the Aguinaldo Interchange to Mamplasan Interchange of SLEX, was signed in March 2017.
Villar also noted that the CALAX is expected to lessen traffic along Governor's Drive, Aguinaldo Highway, and Santa Rosa Tagaytay Road. In addition, the secretary has assured the fast development of the project with the acquisition of road right-of-way for its contractor. The CALAX project is expected to be completed by 2020.
