Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH)

Project Description

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.

The Cavite-Laguna Expressway (CALAX) involves the financing, design and construction, operation and maintenance of the entire 4-lane, 44.63 km closed-system tolled expressway connecting CAVITEX and SLEX. The Project will start from the CAVITEX in Kawit, Cavite and end at the SLEX-Mamplasan Interchange in Biñan, Laguna. The Project will have interchanges in 9 locations, namely: Kawit, Daang Hari, Governor’s Drive, Aguinaldo Highway, Silang, Sta. Rosa-Tagaytay, Laguna Blvd., Technopark, and a Toll Barrier before SLEX.
