The P7.03 billion Segment 3A-2 and P1.8 billion Segment 2 of the Cavitex C5 Link project are set to break ground on Friday. They are targeted for completion by the second quarter of 2022.
Public Works Secretary Mark Villar said these projects would “decongest EDSA and Sales Road in Pasay City by about 50,000 vehicles per day, and connect major business districts in Taguig and Makati to Parañaque, Las Pinas, and Cavite.”
Segment 2 is a 1.9-kilometer, 2×3 lane expressway that will run from R-1 Expressway to Sucat Interchange while Segment 3A-2 is a 1.6-kilometer, 2×3 lane expressway that will run from Merville to RSG Subdivision in Parañaque.
Upon their completion, Segments 2 and 3A-2 will reduce travel time to Makati and Taguig from Parañaque City, Las Pinas City, and Cavite by 30 minutes.
Cavitex-C5 Link Expressway is a 7.7-kilometer dual three-lane expressway that runs from R-1 Parañaque Toll Plaza to C-5 Road in Taguig.
