CAVITE-LAGUNA (CALA) EXPRESSWAY PROJECT

PROJECT BACKGROUND:
The provinces of Cavite and Laguna (CALA) are now considered as among the most industrialized and urbanized areas in the country. Both have been a home to international and multinational electronic, semiconductor, automotive and manufacturing companies. They also serve as catchment areas for the residential population of Metro Manila. This rapid growth and development, however, has resulted in traffic congestion on the major road networks in the area, particularly along the Aguinaldo Highway, Governor’s Drive, and Sta. Rosa–Tagaytay Road.

The project will start from the CAVITEX in Kawit, Cavite and end at the SLEX–Mamplasan Interchange in Biñan, Laguna. The project will have interchanges in 9 locations namely; Kawit, Open Canal, Governor’s Drive, Aguinaldo Highway, Silang East, Sta.Rosa–Tagaytay Rd., Laguna Blvd., Technopark, and a toll barrier before SLEX.

PROJECT OBJECTIVE:
* Support national development policy and provide efficient transport facilities for the Eco–zones in Cavite and Laguna;
