Here are some good news for motorists that frequently travel along CAVITEx, but find it a bit short.

The Metro Pacific Investment Corp (MPIC) and the Cavitex Infrastructure Corp. (CIC) have recently announced that they plan to extend the expressway all the way to the municipalities of Rosario and Noveleta, Cavite.

This comes after the two corporations proposed to the Toll Regulatory Board (TRB) the addition of Segment 5 for the Manila-Cavite Toll Expressway. When finished, the 9.5-kilometer toll road will connect Kawit to Rosario and Noveleta. The construction of Segment 5 is estimated to cost Php 22.5 billion.

“We’re done with the feasibility study. So, it will take us another month to put together the proposal to TRB,” said Luigi Bautista, CIC president.

Apart from the planned extension of CAVITEx, CIC also plans on spending Php 700 million to further expand and improve the expressway. The plans include putting up an additional lane for both directions, as well as constructing a flyover along for those that are coming in from the South bound to Pacific Drive. This will allow drivers to avoid having to stop at the traffic lights before continuing on to their respective destinations.
