MVP Group hopes to get original proponent status for Cavite-Batangas tollroad project
MPCALA Holdings Inc., expects to secure original proponent status for its proposal to build the P22.43-billion Cavite-Batangas Expressway (CTBex).
?As far as we are concerned, we already completed the required documents. It’s really up to the DPWH [Department of Public Works and Highways] to review and issue the original proponent status. We expect to get it this month,? said Luigi Bautista, president and CEO of MPCALA Holdings.
Bautista said construction of the project could start by the first quarter of next year and is targeted for completion in the first half of 2022.
The project, when completed, will cut the travel time from Sta. Rosa Laguna to Nasugbu, Batangas from 2.5 hours to just one hour.
CTBex is a 49-kilometer expressway that will connect Cavite and Batangas, with a spur road to Tagaytay City and will ultimately end in Nasugbu, with another spur road to Tuy, Batangas.
The project will start at Silang East Interchange of Cavite-Laguna Expressway. The alignment shall traverse the towns of Silang, Amadeo, Mendez and Alfonso in Cavite, Tagaytay City and Nasugbu in Batangas.
