When completed, the P12.65 Billion Cavitex C5 Link will be a 7.7-kilometer, 6-lane toll road that will decongest traffic in major business districts in Makati/Taguig area, to Cavite/Paranaque/Las Pinas, reducing travel time from South Luzon Expressway/C5 and Cavitex from the current 40 minutes to just 10 minutes.

Another high-impact project that broke ground today is the 1.2-kilometer Cavitex-CALAX Link Project which is seen to decongest traffic in Cavite, specifically along Centennial Road from Gahak to Tirona Highway.

The project will directly link the coastal expressway and CALAX, with alignment crossing Tirona Highway at Barangay Binakayan and Daang Bangkal Road at Barangay Marulas in Kawit, and Centennial Road at Barangay Pag-asa III in Imus.
