Cavitex Enters Second Phase of Road Enhancements

Cavitex Infrastructure Corp. (CIC), a subsidiary of Metro Pacific Tollways Corp. begins the second phase of its road enhancements which includes additional bridge lanes that aim to widen the Parañaque, Wawa, and Las Piñas bridges. The full enhancement budge of Cavitex is pegged at P1.1 billion.

The first phase of road enhancement was completed and opened to motorists last December 2018. This included the Southbound flyover and Left Turning Facility toward Pacific Drive leading to D. Macapagal Avenue.

Noticeable ease in traveling to and from Parañaque, Las Piñas, and Cavite was immediately felt by motorists.

“Once we complete the second phase of this project by Q4 of 2019, we will be able to make more room for motorists plying CAVITEX, especially now that our traffic volume has increased by 9% since January 2019,” said Bobby Bontia, president and general manager of CIC.

“Our traffic management plans are in place. We will be deploying marshals in areas under construction. We thank our motorists for their continued understanding and cooperation. We are aware that this project will be a temporary inconvenience, so rest assured when the work is over and the project is completed, they will surely feel the ease of passage in Cavitex,”

The management of Cavitex also encourage motorists who regularly use the expressway to switch to electronic toll collection system (ETC), such as the Easytrip RFID to ensure a faster pass through the toll plazas. Doing so will maximize the benefits of road enhancements, according to Cavitex.

Aside from making it easy for motorists to shift by dropping the regular requirements and giving the RFID sticker for free, Easytrip also seamlessly facilitates sharing of information of the Autosweep RFID in Cavitex, NLEX and SCTEX. The Autosweep account holder now only needs to enroll their account in any Easytrip customer service station in any MPTC toll roads.

Cavitex is a part of the road network currently being expanded by the Metro Pacific Tollways Corp. It is envisioned to connect the 7.7-km C5-Southlink that traverses Taguig, Las Piñas, and Parañaque, as well as link to the 45-km Cavite-Laguna Expressway which connects at Kawit, traversing Imus, Governor’s Drive, Aguinaldo Highway, Silang, Sta. Rosa, Laguna up until Mamplasan, Biñan, Laguna.
