The Metro Pacific Group is set to commence on 24 October the collection of toll for portions of the Manila-Cavite Toll Expressway Project (MCTEP).
In a statement, the conglomerate, through its subsidiary Cavite Infrastructure Corp. (CIC), will collect a toll rate of P22 for ordinary cars, P44 for mini vans and shuttles, and P66 for large trucks and trailers for the Segment 3A-1 of the Cavite-Laguna Expressway (CAVITEx)-C5 Link project.
Segment 3A-1 is comprised of a two-by-three lane toll road that runs from C-5 Road in Taguig westward to Merville, Parañaque. It includes the flyover crossing the South Luzon Expressway.
It is expected to alleviate congestion and enable motorists to easily travel between Merville, Parañaque and Taguig and decongest Sales Road, as well as the East and West Service Roads.
“CIC shall continue to work on the next 5.5 kilometers of the Cavitex-C5 Link starting this November. A better and more efficient road network awaits motorists and residents of neighboring cities when the full 7.7-kilometer C5 Link Expressway is completed” said CIC president Bobby Bontia.
Once completed, the entire alignment is forecast to serve 50,000 vehicles daily, and ease travelling along the south corridor of the Metro Manila from CAVITEx Paranaque Toll Plaza, Las Piñas, Pasay up to C5 in Taguig City in under ten minutes.
