Cavitex C5 Link flyover opens today

The C5 Link flyover, which will cut travel time from Pasay City to Taguig City to 45 minutes, will be accessible to motorists starting tonight.

Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Secretary Mark Villar said that the project will offer motorists crossing from Villamor Airbase in Pasay City to Taguig City a chance to reduce their travel time from 1.5 hours to 45 minutes.

“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 three lanes in each direction of this flyover, passage of the anticipated 8,000 vehicles will be eased when they use the flyover starting 8 p.m. sharp tonight.” Villar said.

The P1.6-billion C5 Link flyover will be accessible to vehicles plying between Fort Bonifacio, CP Garcia (C5), Taguig City, Parañaque City, Las Piñas City, and Pasay City. 

The alignment features the bridge which crosses Metro Manila Skyway (at grade) and South Luzon Expressway. The flyover is seen to reduce traffic in Sales interchange near Villamor Airbase and expected to decongest the east and west service roads of SLEX and EDSA.
