President Benigno S. Aquino III attends the project briefing on the Cavite-Laguna Expressway (CALAX) Project. The PPP project entails a 45.5-km, four-lane paved toll road that will connect CAVITEX in Kawit, Cavite and the SLEX-Mamplasan interchange in Biñan, Laguna—which is expected to reduce travel time between CAVITEX and SLEX from an average of 1.15 to 2 hours to only 45 minutes.

The ceremonial turnover of funds for the project was witnessed by the President.

When constructed, the expressway is expected to ease the traffic in the Cavite–Laguna region, particularly in Aguinaldo Highway, Sta. Rosa-Tagaytay Road and Governor’s Drive.
