The CALAX Silang-Aguinaldo Interchange was opened last November to the motoring public with the subsection being free of charge. Since then, it has surpassed its projected traffic count with 12,000 vehicles daily. Now, it’s time to pay up as the toll fees will be implemented starting 12:01am on February 10.

For its future plans, CALAX is set to span a total length of 45km with eight interchanges by 2025: Technopark, Laguna Boulevard, Santa Rosa-Tagaytay Road, Silang East, Silang-Aguinaldo, Governor’s Drive, Open Canal, and Kawit Interchange (where CALAX will seamlessly connect with the Manila-Cavite Expressway).

If you plan on going to Tagaytay or nearby areas this long weekend, don’t be surprised when you’re charged at the tollgate.
