MPIC sees getting original proponent status for Manila-Tagaytay tollroad
A subsidiary of Metro Pacific Investments Corp. expects to obtain original proponent status from the Department of Public Works and Highways for its proposed P23.7 billion Cavite-Tagaytay-Batangas Expressway by before the end of the year.
MPCALA Holdings president and CEO Luigi Bautista said the DPWH had 60 days to evaluate the company’s unsolicited proposal to build a 46-kilometer expressway that will link its existing Cavite Expressway and the Cavite Laguna Expressway to Tagaytay City.
The link starts in Silang, Cavite and will end in Nasugbu, Batangas.
“We have been in active discussion with DPWH, in fact we are completing a few additional requirements so they can declare it as a complete submission and after that they will evaluate it,” Bautista said.
Apart from this, MPCALA is building the P35-billon Cavite Laguna Expressway, a four-lane, 47-kilometer closed-system toll expressway that will connect Cavitex and the South Luzon Expressway.
The expressway will start from Cavitex in Kawit, Cavite and end at the South Luzon Expressway-Mamplasan Interchange in Biñan, Laguna.
