PSA: Motorists Will Have to Pay to Use the Cavitex-C5 Link Starting October 24
The flyover has been toll-free since it opened in July.
(SPOT.ph) So moving south of the Metro has entered fresh levels of difficulty lately—with the construction of the Skyway extension and general congestion—but it looks like something new is about to add to the long list of things motorists have to take note of: the Cavitex-C5 Link Expressway is set to charge toll starting October 24.
The provisional initial toll fees for Class 1 vehicles is at P22, Class 2 vehicles at P44, and Class 3 vehicles is at P66. The link, which first opened in July and was toll-free for the past few months, is currently 2.2 kilometers long but will be 7.7 kilometers once completed. It connects the Sucat and Merville areas directly to C5, making it easier for motorists to get to Bonifacio Global City and Ortigas.
As of now, the link serves around 8,000 vehicles daily but, once the full 7.7. kilometers is completed, that number will hopefully rise to around 50,000, according to a report by the Manila Bulletin. Once everything is settled, motorists will be able to go from the Cavitex Parañaque Toll Plaza to C5 in Taguig City in around 10 minutes.
