MPCALA Holdings Inc., the concessionaire of the Cavite-Laguna Expressway (CALAX), said that in less than a month, it surpassed its targeted daily traffic for the recently opened Silang (Aguinaldo) Interchange, with the highest daily traffic exceeding11,000 vehicles—well beyond the projected 5,000 cars.

The 4-kilometer segment of CALAX, which directly connects to Aguinaldo Highway, seamlessly transports motorists towards tourist destinations in Tagaytay, Silang, Dasmarinas, and other nearby cities and municipalities in the province of Cavite.

Meanwhile, MPCALA said the construction for the remaining portion of the CALAX Cavite Segment continues in full swing. The next interchange will be a 7.9km 2x2 lane expressway that will extend from Silang (Aguinaldo) Interchange to Governor’s Drive in General Trias.

As of the date, more than 95% of the right-of-way for this segment has already been acquired, and the team has already begun earthworks and bridge constructions.

“Governor’s Drive will be the second-longest segment of CALAX, spanning almost 8km in length. We target to open it to the motoring public before the end of 2024. Through this interchange, we aspire to revolutionize our motorist travel experience, by connecting communities and helping improve the economy of the region,” shared Mr. Raul L. Ignacio, President, and General Manager of MPCALA.

Looking forward, CALAX is set to reach a total length of 45 kilometers by 2025, featuring eight strategically positioned interchanges: Technopark, Laguna Boulevard, Santa Rosa-Tagaytay Road, Silang East, Silang (Aguinaldo), Governor's Drive, Open Canal, and Kawit Interchange. CALAX will seamlessly connect with the Manila-Cavite Expressway (CAVITEX) in Kawit, further unifying key regions. Presently, operational segments span from Mamplasan Rotunda up to the Silang (Aguinaldo) Interchange.

MPCALA, a Metro Pacific Tollways Corporation (MPTC) subsidiary, is the leading mobility infrastructure and solutions provider in the Philippines. As the toll road development arm of Metro Pacific Investments Corporation (MPIC), MPTC's portfolio includes the concession rights for North Luzon Expressway (NLEX), NLEX Connector Road, Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX), and Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway (CCLEX) in Cebu, in addition to CALAX and CAVITEX.
