Last July 23, Department of Public Works and Highways Secretary, Mark Villar, announced the opening of the C5 Southlink. It’s now passable to those coming from Fort Bonifacio, C.P Garcia (C5), Taguig City, Paranaque City, Las Pinas City, and Pasay City.


The C-5 Southlink is a six-lane (three in either direction) expressway that will span a total of 7.7 kilometers, directly connecting the C-5/SLEX terminus to CAVITEX/R-1. In other words, in the near future, we will be able to drive unswervingly from Taguig all the way to the Coastal Road in far less time compared to before.


The C5 Southlink is the first part of the planned Cavitex C5 link expressway. It’s a Php 1.6 Billion partnership with Metro Pacific Tollways Corporation that was created to cut down the travel time from Paranaque to Taguig to 10 minutes. With this initiative, traffic in Sales interchange near Villamor Airbase is expected to reduce since it’s a 2.2 kilometer flyover that crosses over Skyway and SLEX,


Targeted to finish by 2021, the DPWH will have completed the entire 7.7-kilometers of the C-5 Southlink with Segment 2 (1.9-km R1 Interchange to Sucat Interchange), Segment 3A-2 (1.6-km Merville to E. Rodriguez), and Segment 3B (2.2-km Sucat to E-Rodriguez).


C5 South Link will give motorists from Parañaque, Las Piñas and Cavite direct access to C5. Imagine how convenient this is? Hopefully, this new project and the others on the line up, will help in decongesting traffic in the Metro.
