More traffic woes for Paranaque as C5 link construction begins next month

February will be a stressful time for people down south. This is due to the beginning of the construction of the 7.6 km C5 expressway link.

The project which is expected to be completed in 2019 is said to bring “productive living in the city” especially for residents of BF Subdivision, Merville, Moonwalk Village, and Multinational Village. It's also expected to “ensure faster travel and more productive living in the city” says City Administrator Fernando Soriano. The C5 expressway link will connect Taguig City to Cavite expressway and vice versa.

Construction is set to start on February and will cause short term heavy traffic along the surrounding areas such as Andrews Avenue, Airport Road, and Sucat Road. This is on top of the ongoing construction of the NAIA elevated expressway.

Not to worry though as Paranaque Mayor Edwin Olivares says that they will deploy more traffic enforcers in the areas leading to the airport. Olivares advised plan trips ahead of time and to take alternative routes in order to avoid inconvenience.
