MVP Group on track to finish C5 South Link by mid-2019
Cavitex Infrastructure Corp. said it is on schedule to complete the construction of a 7.7 kilometer tollroad that will connect C5 to the Manila-Cavite Toll Expressway by June next year.
The first 2.2 km section of the P10 billion C5 South Link, which connects C5 to Merville, Paranque, is expected to be completed by the first quarter of 2019.
With the project, travel time from Parañaque, Las Piñas and Cavite to Taguig will be cut to 20 to 30 minutes from the usual 1 1/2 hours.
The project is seen to benefit 50,000 vehicles by decongesting Sales Road in Pasay and EDSA when it starts commercial operations.
“We also want to inform the public that by the end of September, we will be launching girders that will cross the at-grade portion of Skyway and South Luzon Expressway. This is a critical activity of the project and we expect substantial completion after the girders are installed,” said CIC president Luigi Bautista.
