The Cavite-Laguna Expressway (CALAX) is set to make a major milestone this 2022, as it eyes the operationalization of its upcoming interchange – the Silang (Aguinaldo) Interchange in the latter part of the year. This will extend CALAX’ operational sections from Mamplasan, Laguna, to Aguinaldo Highway in Silang, Cavite.
As of today, the 3.9-kilometer 2×2 lane CALAX subsection has reached 56% of completion. Part of the ongoing works includes drainage and bridge constructions, excavation and roadway earthworks, and installation of fence and coco net.
Once operational, the Silang Aguinaldo Interchange, aside from the Santa Rosa-Tagaytay Road Interchange, will be a convenient alternative exit of CALAX for motorists coming from Metro Manila going to the country’s second summer capital, Tagaytay City. The interchange is 16 kilometers away from the city proper of Tagaytay via Aguinaldo Highway, and the travel time is around 20 minutes only.
Other interchanges of CALAX namely Open Canal, Governor’s Drive, and Kawit, are targeted to be completed by 2023.
CALAX’s operational segment spans 14.24-kilometer with interchanges at Greenfield-Mamplasan, Laguna Technopark, Laguna Boulevard, Santa Rosa-Tagaytay, and Silang East. Upon completion of the entire CALAX project, it will connect to the Manila-Cavite Expressway (CAVITEX) in Kawit, Cavite.
