MPTC mulls Cavitex extension to Sangley

An extension linking the Manila-Cavite Expressway (Cavitex) and the airport in Sangley Point, Cavite is being considered by the Metro Pacific Tollways Corp. (MPTC) amid government’s plan to utilize the air base to decongest the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA).

MPTC president Rodrigo Franco said that the company may look for a spur road from Cavitex that can be used to get to Sangley Point in Cavite, according to a report from BusinessWorld.

“Cavitex can build a segment that will extend to Sangley. But the project will depend on the plan of the government for the airport. If there is a definite plan for the commercial use of Sangley airport, Cavitex can build the extension,” he said in a text message.

Meanwhile, the Department of Transportation (DOTr) is studying a ferry system from the Mall of Asia in Pasay City to Sangley to resolve traffic congestion that might be experienced by motorists going to the former Philippine Air Force base in Cavite.

The DOTr ordered additional manpower to speed up the construction of Sangley Airport to meet the operational timeline that was set by President Duterte.

Operations of NAIA general aviation would be transferred to Sangley to decongest and prevent flight delays at the country’s main airport.

General aviation refers to light aircraft operations and training planes, which currently occupies 46 hectares of prime land with 87 occupants at NAIA. – With reporting from Denise A. Valdez/BusinessWorld
