MPIC eyes original proponent status for Cavite-Batangas expressway by June
Metro Pacific Investments Corp is confident about obtaining original proponent status for its planned P22.4 billion Cavite-Batangas Expressway by next month.
According to the Department of Public Works and Highways, construction of the project is expected to start in the first quarter of 2019 with completion targeted in the first half of 2022.
CTBex is a 49-kilometer expressway that will connect Cavite and Batangas, with a spur road to Tagaytay City and ultimately terminating in Nasugbu, with another spur road to Tuy, Batangas.
Once completed, the project will cut travel time from Sta. Rosa, Laguna to Nasugbu, Batangas from 2.5 hours to just an hour.
