The provinces of Cavite and Laguna are growing industrial and commercial centers in the Southern Tagalog Region. ¬†This, however, is causing traffic congestion in major road networks in the area particularly the Governor’s Drive, Aguinaldo Highway, and Sta. Rosa-Tagaytay Road. ¬†The proposed expressway project aims to provide faster, safer, more comfortable and reliable route between Bacoor and Kawit, Cavite areas, and the Laguna and South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) areas; thus enhancing trade and socio-economic activities around them.
Department of Public Works and Highway (DPWH)
The project is a 4-lane, 47.02 km at-grade, which will connect the Manila-Cavite Expressway (CAVITEX) and South Luzon Expressway (SLEX). The private sector will finance, design, and construct the Cavite Section with a total of 28.9km from Kawit to Aguinaldo Highway, Silang, Cavite; and operate and maintain the entire 47km CALAX. The Government, on the other hand, will finance, design and construct the Laguna Section with 18.1km from Aguinaldo Highway to SLEX Mamplasan Exit, Laguna.
Cavite Section: ¬† PHP 19.705 Billion ¬†
Laguna Section: ¬†PHP 15.872 Billion ¬†
¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†Total Cost: ¬†PHP 35.577 Billion ¬†
35 years inclusive of design and construction
