Cavitex C5 Link to open in 2022 – Villar

Public Works and Highways Sec. Mark Villar expressed optimism that two segments of the Cavitex C5 Link Expressway will be completed in 2022.

Villar, together with representatives from the Cavitex Infrastructure Corporation (CIC), visited Cavitex to check on the progress of the ongoing construction of the Cavitex C5 Link ramp, which is part of Segment 2 that will soon connect Cavitex R1 to Sucat, bypassing Sucat Road and Quirino Avenue. 

Additionally, they also went to the construction site of Segment 3A-2, which is a 1.6km 2×3 lane portion that will connect Merville to RSG Subdivision in Pasay City. 

“With the progress we have seen on-site today, we are optimistic that the CAVITEX C5 Link Segment will be completed as planned. We really look forward to the completion of this project because aside from helping decongest EDSA, Sales Road and other major thoroughfares, this expressway will help reduce the travel time of our motorists from CAVITEX to Makati and Taguig and vice versa by forty-five minutes,” Villar said.

Currently, Cavitex C5 Link’s Segment 3A-1 from Merville to Taguig caters an average of 12,000 motorists daily. Upon completion of the entire 7.7-kilometer segment, it is expected to benefit around 50,000 motorists, particularly those coming from Taguig, Makati, Las Pinas, and Pasay.  

“Together with CIC, we continue to double our efforts, all the while looking after the safety of the workers to ensure we complete Segment 3A-2 by the first quarter of 2022 and Segment 2 by the third quarter, also of next year,” Villar added.

Cavitex C5 Link is a segment of the Manila-Cavite Toll Expressway Project, a joint venture project of CIC and the Philippine Reclamation Authority. The CIC is a subsidiary of the Metro Pacific Tollways Corporation.
