Regular users of the Manila-Cavite Expressway (CAVITEX) will now be able to experience faster and safer travel times after the major rehabilitation of the pathway officially concluded on Monday (May 31).
The maintenance project – priced at P78 million – concentrated on ironing out kinks on the expressway’s surface, specifically pavement fractures, distortions, and disintegration at its Longos, Bacoor Entry and Exit points as well as a portion of the Wawa Bridge to Zapote Interchange.
Cavitex Infrastructure Corporation (CIC) and its partner Philippine Reclamation Authority (PRA) spearheaded the rehabilitation of the carriageway, which started on February 27, 2021.
“With the recently completed heavy maintenance project in Cavitex, we now have safer carriageways and smoother roads that help improve the overall driving experience of our motorists,” Cavitex President and General Manager Roberto V. Bontia shared in a statement.
“Despite challenges brought about by the pandemic, we continue to invest on projects that will ensure safety and convenience of our toll road users,” he added.
Meanwhile, PRA General Manager and CEO Janilo E. Rubiato said the completion of the project is a testament to how dedicated they are to providing an ‘easier’ and ‘safer’ travel experience to the Filipino people.
“We ensure that they get what they pay for in terms of safety, ease and convenience in travelling through Cavitex. Hence, we considered the high maintenance project a must to live up to that commitment, and with the results we now see and experience in the toll road, we consider it money well spent,” Rubiato said.
The Manila–Cavite Expressway is a 14-kilometer long motorway that connects Manila to the Southern part of Cavite.
It’s included in the road network being developed by the Metro Pacific Tollways Corporation (MPTC), which will soon link up with the C5 Link Expressway and the Cavite-Laguna Expressway.
