C-5 link construction to cause heavy traffic


Motorists and commuters should expect heavier traffic in Parañaque City’s already troubled major thoroughfares, particularly in the vicinity of the Moonwalk and Merville Park villages on Sucat Road. Mayor Edwin Olivarez warned the public of the “short-term inconvenience” because of the construction of C-5 Link Expressway beginning next month. The Metro Pacific Tollways Corp., a unit of Metro Pacific Investments Corp., got a go-signal from the Toll Regulatory Board to start the first phase of the road project. The 7.6-kilometer expressway will connect the Circumferential-5 (C-5) Road in Taguig City to Cavitex Coastal Expressway with P9- billion budget. Olivarez advised motorists to take alternate routes, saying additional enforcers will be deployed to assist traffic flow. It was noted that the NAIA Elevated Expressway and Skyway Stage 3 are already snarling traffic in some parts of Parañaque, Pasay and Manila, affecting those going to the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA).
