The first toll road project bid out under the Aquino administration’s public private partnership program is set to open within the first quarter of 2015.
Formerly known as the Daang Hari-SLEX Connector Road, the Muntinlupa Cavite Expressway or MCX, is scheduled to complete construction in the next 3-4 months. The road will connect Muntinlupa City to Cavite via Bacoor.
Construction went on high gear in February 2014 when access to the interchange was obtained. As of November, construction is estimated to be over 60% complete and is expected to ramp up to 80% by year-end.
Ayala invested around P2.2 billion in the project and will operate and maintain the road for 30 years.
The toll rate for the 4-kilometer, four lane road is set at P17 for Class 1 vehicles and P34 for Class 2 vehicles. MCX is expected to relieve traffic congestion along the Daang Hari Road and Commerce Avenue and give commuters from Molino and Bacoor Cavite faster and easier access to the South Luzon Expressway.
