In case you’ve been living under a rock, the C5 South Link—or Segment 3A1 of the Cavitex-C5 Link Project—was officially opened to the public yesterday, July 23. The opening ceremonies were led by the Department of Public Works and Highways and the Metro Pacific Tollways Corporation (MPTC).
Earlier this morning, the MPTC shared via the Cavitex official Facebook page an informative guide on how motorists within the metro can utilize the newly opened thoroughfare. Check out the post below:
The infographic shows alternative routes that have opened up for motorists coming from Sucat, SM Mall of Asia, and Villamor toward C5, or vice versa. As an added bonus, new optimal routes for those traveling from Sucat or Merville to BGC or Ortigas via the new road were also illustrated in the guide.
Like we said just yesterday, traversing the flyover takes just three minutes or less—that is, if traffic flows freely in and out of both ends of the road. Outside of controlled conditions, however, we’ve yet to see how much this new route will affect the traffic in the surrounding areas. For now, the good thing is that motorists can still enjoy passing through this tollway for free.
