    Further, MPTC targets to break ground for Section 3 of the Cavite part of the project by the end of this month. This 7-km section will run from Governor’s Drive Interchange to Silang (Aguinaldo) Interchange.

    CALAX is a 45-km road project that will connect Manila-Cavite Expressway (CAVITEX) and South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) to reduce travel time by at least 45 minutes.
