The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) officially opened on December 18 the newly constructed four-lane southbound flyover along Manila-Cavite Expressway (Cavitex).

The flyover, along with the Marina left-turning facility, has been opened to provide seamless passage along Cavitex, and remove the previous stop-and-go scheme that causes traffic congestion in the area, DPWH said in a statement.

Cavitex is a 14-kilometer (km) expressway along the coast of Bacoor Bay south of Roxas Boulevard which exits to Bacoor City and Kawit. It is located 11 km from Manila and 7 km from the Ninoy Aquino International Airport.

The concessionaire, Cavitex Infrastructure Corp., which is part of the Metro Pacific Tollways Corporation, earlier said it is investing about P1.1 billion on its ongoing enhancement project for Cavitex, with the aim to ease traffic on the expressway.

The first phase involves widening of the road from NAIA to Zapote Road, which has a cost of about P800 million, while the second phase involves widening of the bridges along Wawa, Las Piñas and Parañaque, which has a budget of P300 million.
