CAVITEX repairs Kaingin Road, turns over to DPWH and Parañaque City
Parañaque City – Department of Public Works and Highways Secretary Mark Villar inspected Kaingin road with the Executives of Cavitex Infrastructure Corporation (CIC) and the Parañaque City Government. Secretary Villar asked CIC to facilitate the repair of Kaingin Road in Parañaque City to ease the traffic flow in this area.
“Kaingin Road is part of the C5 Extension road and intersects Multinational Ave in Parañaque where warehouses and logistics hubs are located. Approximately 89,000 vehicles pass through this area 24/7 and would normally take more than 45 minutes just to traverse this section during morning and evening rush hours. High volume and high load vehicles, motor chemicals and weather changes have contributed to the deterioration of the road. Kaingin has been a chokepoint ever since, even before C5 Link Expressway started construction. By way of helping the community, CIC agreed to extend their assistance. With the repairs done, the traffic flow will be eased,” said Villar.
“In coordination with both DPWH and the local government of Parañaque, we had the area studied by our engineering and traffic management teams. We proceeded to secure and deploy the needed construction works to level the road and repair the drainage in the affected area. These repair measures will not result in instant decongestion but will enable traffic to flow untroubled and smoother. Now that we have completed the repairs, we turn over Kaingin to the City of Paranaque and DPWH,” said Bobby Bontia, President and GM of CIC.
