MPCALA Holdings Inc., the concessionaire of the Cavite-Laguna Expressway (CALAX), announced the implementation of toll rates for the CALAX Silang (Aguinaldo) Interchange, as approved by the Toll Regulatory Board. These rates will be effective starting at 12:01 AM on February 10, 2024.
“The implementation of these toll rates aids in the continuous maintenance and enhancement of our toll road while ensuring efficient and safe travel for our users. The Silang (Aguinaldo) Interchange has become a vital part of our network, significantly enhancing the connectivity and economic landscape of the region,” said Raul L. Ignacio, president and general manager of MPCALA Holdings Inc.
The critical CALAX Silang (Aguinaldo) Interchange section connects directly to the Aguinaldo Highway, facilitating smoother and faster travel to key tourism destination areas in Cavite, including Tagaytay and Silang. It was opened to motorists last November 8 with a free toll until further notice. CALAX has surpassed its targeted daily traffic for the recently inaugurated subsection, with an impressive daily count of 12,000 vehicles—well beyond the projected 5,000 cars and has become an essential component of the region’s infrastructure.
Looking ahead, CALAX is set to reach a total length of 45 kilometers by 2025, featuring eight strategically positioned interchanges: Technopark, Laguna Boulevard, Santa Rosa-Tagaytay Road, Silang East, Silang (Aguinaldo), Governor’s Drive, Open Canal, and Kawit Interchange. CALAX will seamlessly connect with the Manila-Cavite Expressway (CAVITEX) in Kawit, further unifying key regions. Presently, operational segments span from Mamplasan Rotunda up to the Silang (Aguinaldo) Interchange.
