CAVITEX and C5 Link Segments to Open in 2022

CAVITEX and C5 Link Segments to Open in 2022

Updated on July 22 2024

We have good news for motorists wishing to travel from CAVITEX to C5 in record time. Secretary Mark A. Villar of the DPWH (Department of Public Works and Highways) recently announced that the CAVITEX and C5 Link Segments might open in 2022. The announcement came after Villar and representatives of the Cavitex Infrastructure Corporation (CIC) inspected the progress of Cavitex C5 Link Segments 2 and 3A2 last week.

“Together with CIC, we continue to double our efforts, all the while looking after the safety of the workers to ensure we complete Segment 3A2 by the first quarter of 2022 and Segment 2 by the third quarter, also of next year,” said Villar.

Segment 2 of the Cavitex and C5 Link is a 1.9km lane connecting CAVITEX R1 to Sucat, bypassing Sucat Road and Quirino Avenue. On the other hand, Segment 3A2 spans 1.6km and will connect Merville to RSG Subdivision in Pasay. Both segments will supplement the current 3A1 Cavitex C5 Link running from Merville to Taguig.

Currently, the existing 3A1 link serves an average of 12,000 motorists daily. But as segments 2 and 3A2 open next year, the entire 7.7-kilometer CAVITEX-C5 Link will cater to around 50,000 motorists daily from Taguig, Makati, Las Pinas, and Pasay. The new links will also decongest EDSA, Sales Road, and other thoroughfares.

Upon completing the CAVITEX and C5 link segments, motorists can save up to 45 minutes of travel time when going from CAVITEX to Makati and Taguig (and vice-versa). “With the progress we have seen on-site, we are optimistic that the CAVITEX C5 Link Segment will be completed as planned,” concluded Villar.

Additionally, the CIC provides shuttling services and PPEs (Personal Protective Equipment) to workers and employees of the CAVITEX and C5 link segments. The company has also started its vaccination program to protect workers from COVID-19 and its many variants.
