Daang Hari-SLEX links Cavite to Metro Manila
Motorists will soon be able to use the Daang Hari-SLEX link, now known as the Muntinlupa-Cavite expressway as a way to get to Cavite via the South Luzon Expressway. Constuction of the expressway was done by Ayala Corp. through AC Infrastructure Holdings Corp.
The 4-kilometer 4-lane toll road starts at the junction of Daang Reyna and Daang Hari in Las Piñas/Bacoor, Cavite. It then connects to SLEX through the Susana Heights Interchange in Muntinlupa, traversing the New Bilibid Prison (NBP) Reservation. The link-road will use the Susana Heights Interchange as exit and entry from north and south of SLEX and will include the construction of a new bridge/widening of the existing bridge crossing SLEX as well as the expansion of the Susana Heights toll plaza.
The Muntinlupa-Cavite Expressway or MCX is the first contract auctioned off under the Aquino administration’s PPP scheme. The project is under the Department of Public works and Highways with a build-transfer-operate agreement with a concession period of 30 years.
Stakeholders are expecting to open the new toll road within the month to significantly ease traffic within Alabang.
