The Cavite Expressway (Cavitex) and C5 Link are seen to be connected by the fourth quarter of 2022.

The second segment of the C5 South Link project, which would connect the expressway to the Cavitex, is currently at a 17% completion rate.

Metro Pacific Investments Corporation unit Cavitex Infrastructure Corporation (CIC) told reporters on Tuesday, September 7, that right-of-way acquisition for the segment has reached 82%.

“Despite the challenges of stricter mobility and surging cases of COVID-19, we’re happy to report that the project is moving,” said Roberto Bontia, CIC president and general manager.

According to the project timeline, Segment 3A-2, which connects RSG Subdivision to Merville in Parañaque City, is seen to be completed by the first quarter of 2022.

The remaining segment, Segment 3B which would connect Sucat to RSG Subdivision, is targeted for the third quarter of 2023.

The Cavitex is also seen to be connected to the Cavite-Laguna Expressway. The connection is expected to cost around P2 billion and is targeted to start construction by late 2021 or early 2022, in anticipation of the CALAX completion by early 2023.

The C5 Link Expressway project is a 7.7-kilometer tollway which will connect the Cavitex to C5, passing through the cities of Parañaque, Pasay, and Taguig. When the project is completed, it is eyed to decongested MIA Road, Roxas Boulevard, and other adjacent roads.

In 2019, the C5 Link flyover from Taguig to Merville was opened. – Rappler.com
