Local transportation infrastructure projects are continuously being built in full swing. More highways and bridges are being started and completed in order to cater to our re-opening economy and increasing vehicle volume.
CAVITEX C5 Link Flyover Extension
Yesterday, a vital road project has just been opened for public use; the Cavitex C5 Link Flyover Extension. The opening ceremony held on August 13 was graced by Metro Pacific Investments Corp. Chairman Manny V. Pangilinan, Department of Transportation Sec. Jaime Bautista, together with MPTC Executives, MPTC President and CEO, Rodrigo Franco, and MPT South President and General Manager, Mr. Raul Ignacio, and Metro Pacific Investments Corporation Head of Government Relations and Public Affairs and Head of MVP Group Media Bureau, Atty. Mike Toledo. Also present in the event are Senator Mark Villar, Congressman Edwin Olivarez and Mayor Eric Olivarez of Paranaque City, Mayor Imelda Calixto-Rubiano of Pasay City, other government partners and various community stakeholders.
This new 1.6-kilometer segment of CAVITEX C5 Link Flyover Extension connects to the operational 2.2km flyover that provides convenient access and improved travel time for motorists bound to C5 Road in Taguig from Merville, Paranaque, and vice versa. It is a milestone achievement towards the completion of the much-awaited CAVITEX C5 Link.
With the opening of the CAVITEX C5 Link Flyover extension, a new traffic scheme will be implemented for motorists entering the expressway in Merville. Vehicles from Paranaque going to Taguig shall now pass into the new C5 Link Flyover Merville entry located in front of Shell C5 Southlink, Brgy. Moonwalk, Paranaque.
TRB has approved the provisional toll, for the now extended CAVITEX C5 Link: Php 37.00 for Class 1 vehicles; Php 74.00 for Class 2; and Php 112.00 for Class 3, but implementation will be deferred for September as the company’s goodwill to motorists.
