MPCala Holdings Inc. expects to to obtain the original proponent status for the P22.43-billion Cavite-Batangas Expressway this month.
CTBex is a 49-km expressway that will connect Cavite and Batangas, with a spur road to Tagaytay City and ultimately terminating in Nasugbu, with another spur road to Tuy, Batangas.
President and Chief Executive of MPCala Holdings Luigi Bautista reportedly said that they already completed the required documents that they needed and it’s up to the DPWH (Department of Public Works and Highways) now to review and issue the original proponent status. “Our expectation is by this month,” said Bautista.
CTBex project is expected to start construction by the first quarter of 2019. Once completed targeted by the first half of 2022, the project shall cut travel time from Sta. Rosa, Laguna to Nasugbu, Batangas from 2.5 hours to just an hour.
The project will start at Silang East Interchange of Cavite-Laguna Expressway. The alignment will traverse the towns of Silang, Amadeo, Mendez and Alfonso in Cavite, Tagaytay City and Nasugbu in Batangas.
