“We are doubling our efforts on the construction of segment 2 and segment 3A-2. With the challenges brought about by the pandemic, we will ensure to stick to the timeline as close as we can and be able to the open the new segments in Cavitex C5 Link next year,” said Roberto V. Bontia, CIC president and general manager.
Segment 2 is a 1.9-kilometer, 2×3 lane expressway from Cavitex (R1) Expressway to a proposed interchange at Sucat.
Segment 3A-2, a sub-section of Segment 3 is a 1.6-kilometer, 2×3 lane expressway from Merville to RSG (Airport View) Subdivision in Parañaque.
Upon its completion, the project is expected to serve 50,000 cars and reduce travel time to Makati and Taguig from Parañaque City, Las Pinas City, and Cavite Province from an hour to about 10 minutes.
Cavitex is set to conduct a 60-day maintenance program starting February 27 aimed at maintaining the performance standard of the expressway and improving the quality of carriageway and drive experience of its motorists.
“There will definitely be an effect on the passage of our motorists in the construction areas, that is why we have laid out a comprehensive traffic management plan supporting all these works to ease their passage and additional on-ground support and more than ample signages will also be positioned to ensure safety and smooth flow of vehicles,” Bontia said.
