The Maitim and Kaybagal Sections of the Tagaytay Bypass Road Project in Cavite will be opened to motorists this month, the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) said.
The two portions to be opened have a combined length of 1.54-kilometer, the DPWH said in a statement Wednesday.
This length will form part of an 8.59-kilometer, four-lane bypass road that will decongest Tagaytay traffic, specifically the areas of Luksuhin, Sikat, Zambal, Guinhawa, Patutong Malaki, Balagbag, Salaban, Kaybagal, and Maitim.
Public Works Secretary Mark Villar said: “The opening of these two sections this October is only the beginning as we have been prioritizing the inclusion of Tagaytay Bypass Road Project in the national budget since 2018.”
He said the completion of the Tagaytay Bypass Road would cut travel time from the usual 53 minutes to only 20 minutes from Alfonso town to Tagaytay City.
Other projects in the area include the 746-meter Balagbag Section, the 590-meter Guinhawa Section, the 1.32-kilometer Salaban Section, and the 580-meter Patuto Section 3. Jojo Mangahis
