PIA Press Release

Feature: Daang Hari-SLEX, a P1.3 B toll road project

Laguna (20 February) -- The National Development Company (NDC), the investment arm of the government, has began road works in cooperation with the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) and Toll Regulatory Board (TRB), for the construction of a P1.358 billion new toll road project that will link Daang-Hari in Cavite and the South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) near the Susana Heights Interchange in Muntinlupa City.

The toll road project is a major undertaking included in President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo's SONA 2006 under the Comprehensive Integrated Infrastructure Program (CIIP) of the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA). The NDC and the Alabang - Sto. Tomas Development Inc. (ASDI) are the implementing agencies. Dubbed as the ASDI-Daang Hari C-6 Toll Road project, it is a four-lane toll road from Daang Hari to SLEX and passes through the New Bilibid Prison (NBP) Complex. Total project cost is estimated at P1.358 billion.

NDC acting general manager Ma. Lourdes F. Rebueno said the project will decongest heavy traffic in some parts of Cavite, Las Pinas and Muntinlupa and will reduce road distance from Daang Hari to the Alabang viaduct by three kilometers. The project will also complement the redevelopment plan for the NBP as directed by President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.

The project is a component of the Cavite-Laguna (CALA) East-West National Road Project of the DPWH.

The CALA evolved from the recommendation of the two studies conducted by the Metro Manila Urban Transportation Integration Study (MMUTIS) and CALA Transport Strategy, and Short-term Programs and Policies, a component of the Cavite-Laguna Urban Development and Environmental Management Project of the World Bank.
