Ever since the Cavite-Laguna Expressway (CALAX) opened, it has allowed travelers easy access to places like Technopark, Laguna Boulevard, Santa Rosa, and Silang East within Cavite and Laguna.

But for those hoping for a faster way to get to one of the most popular summer destinations (Tagaytay), travelers will be excited to know that the Silang (Aguinaldo) Interchange is currently 91% complete, and is targeting an opening date in September of this year.

As of now, the remaining construction jobs are the development of the toll plaza and the concrete pouring for the main line and median barriers. Once complete, it will cater to at least 5,000 motorists daily.

By 2024, CALAX will expand to a total of 45km and have eight interchanges that will eventually connect to the Manila-Cavite Expressway (CAVITEX) in Kawit, Cavite for seamless connections between the Cavite, Laguna, Tagaytay, and Manila.
