The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) will open the 1.54-km portion of the Tagaytay Bypass Road this month.
Public Works and Highways Sec. Mark Villar said that the soon-to-be-opened Maitim and Kaybagal sections are seen to divert traffic within the congested city roads of Tagaytay, running through Luksuhin, Sikat, Zambal, Guinhawa, Patutong Malaki, Balagbag, Salaban, Kaybagal, and Maitim road sections.
Villar said that once completed, the Tagaytay Bypass Road will reduce travel time from Alfonso to Tagaytay City from the usual 53 minutes to just 20 minutes.
Aside from the Maitim and Kaybagal Section, DPWH is currently implementing road opening and concreting at the 746-meter Balagbag Section, road opening of 1.32-kilometer Salaban Section, road concreting of 590-meter Guinhawa Section; and road opening and concreting of 580-meter Patuto Section 3.
