President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. welcomed Friday the announcement of CAVITEX operator Philippine Reclamation Authority (PRA) to suspend toll fee collection for all vehicles passing through the Manila-Cavite Toll Expressway.

This means the Manila-Cavite Toll Expressway in Taguig, Parañaque, Las Piñas, Bacoor, and Kawit will be free from toll fees for 30 days.

In his message during the inauguration of the new Cavitex C5 Link Sucat Interchange and Groundbreaking of the Cavitex C5 Link Segment 3B, Marcos invited the public to take advantage of the expressways and experience firsthand the ease and convenience they bring to travel.

"This will introduce our new roads, expressways to those who are in need of that transport system," the President said.


"We welcome this call and thank the PRA for its initiative to help mitigate the impact of rising fuel costs to our motorists. I now count on our Toll Regulatory Board to ensure the immediate implementation, for the benefit of the riding and the transport public," he added.

Marcos noted that flagship PPP projects are the result of a great deal of hard work, thorough planning, and collaborative efforts of the PPA, the Cavitex Infrastructure Corp., and the principal company Metro Pacific Tollways Corp.

He also thanked architects, engineers, construction workers, project managers, and all the individuals involved for their accomplishments.

Aside from the smart minds of the builders, Marcos also thanked the public for their patience, understanding, and support during the completion of the large projects.


According to the Presidential Communications Office, the CAVITEX C5 Link Sucat Interchange is expected to bring smooth, safe, and convenient travel from CAVITEX R1 to Sucat Parañaque City within just five minutes, a dramatic improvement from the usual one-hour travel time via existing public roads from Kawit, Cavite. It is set to benefit around 23,000 vehicles regularly.

Meanwhile, the CAVITEX C5 Link Expressway Segment 3B, a two-kilometer road coming from Sucat Interchange going to E. Rodriguez in C5 Road, Taguig City, is expected to reduce travel time from CAVITEX R1 Expressway Section to SLEX/C5 Road from 40 minutes to just 10 minutes once the project is completed.
