Starting today, November 8, 2023, the Silang Aguinaldo Interchange of the Cavite Laguna Expressway (CALAX) is set to open to motorists, marking a significant milestone for the region's transportation network.
Managed by MPCALA Holdings Inc (MHI), the concessionaire of CALAX, this 3.9-km subsection aims to enhance travel experiences for commuters.
This expansion, which was declared 91% complete in August 2023, offers a promising solution to traffic challenges in the area.
What's more, motorists can rejoice as they will be able to use this new section without incurring any charges initially. The customer-centric approach allows travelers to enjoy toll-free passage until further notice, with charges only applied up to Silang East.
Raul Ignacio, the President and GM of MHI, expressed excitement about this development, emphasizing the positive impact it will have on both commuters and the local economy. He highlighted how the new CALAX section will not only simplify travel for motorists but also stimulate economic growth. By providing quicker access to popular destinations in Cavite, the expressway is expected to create opportunities for businesses to flourish and families to spend quality time together.
Looking ahead, CALAX is slated to expand to a total length of 45 kilometers by 2024, featuring eight strategically located interchanges: Technopark, Laguna Boulevard, Santa Rosa-Tagaytay Road, Silang East, Silang (Aguinaldo), Governor's Drive, Open Canal, and Kawit Interchange. This expansion plan will seamlessly connect CALAX to the Manila-Cavite Expressway (CAVITEX) in Kawit, ensuring efficient connectivity between key regions.
For travelers heading to Silang or Tagaytay City, the CALAX Silang Interchange will offer a hassle-free journey starting this Wednesday.
