MPCala Holdings Inc., a unit of Metro Pacific Investments Corp., said it plans to complete the Laguna Boulevard to Malampasan section of the Cavite Laguna Expressway by December this year, ahead of the original target of February 2019.
“The original target is February. We will expedite the construction and we will finish it by end of the year,” Luigi Bautista, president and chief executive of MPCala, told reporters.
The whole segment of the Laguna side of Calax is up for completion by June 2020.
Bautista also said groundbreaking of the Cavite side of Calax was expected by April this year.
MPCala Holdings earlier tapped Leighton Holdings of Australia to build the Cavite side, while local contractor DMCI Consunj Inc. will construct the Laguna side.
Public Works Secretary Mark Villar said the project was expected to decongest traffic in Metro Manila.
