Preparatory work on the second segment of the 45-kilometer Cavite-Laguna Expressway (CALAX) has started following the opening of the road’s first section.

In a Philippine Star report, MPCALA Holdings Inc. said it opened the 10.7-km stretch between Mamplasan Entry and Santa Rosa-Tagaytay Interchange to vehicular traffic on Feb. 9.

The toll road has been serving around 10,000 vehicles daily since its partial opening last Oct. 2019. The second segment is a 35-km. road from Silang to Kawit, Cavite.

“The end-to-end opening of the first segment of CALAX is imperative to reduce traffic congestion in various parts of Laguna, specifically Laguna Boulevard and Aguinaldo Highway,” MPCALA president and general manager Roberto Bontia  said.

“Now that all lanes are accessible, it serves as a viable option for motorists given the growing traffic demands in the area,” Bontia said.

After being toll-free in the first three months of its partial operations, the MPCALA started yesterday the collection of toll from motorists who utilize the 10.7-km segment of the road.

Toll rate for class 1 vehicles is P47, P95 for class 2 vehicles, and P143 for class 3 vehicles. 

Completion of the entire CALAX segment is being eyed by 2022. – Richmond Mercurio
