Cavite-Laguna expressway OKd
ABS-CBNnews.com
Posted at 07/23/2012 2:05 PM | Updated as of 07/23/2012 2:05 PM

MANILA, Philippines - The P43.3 billion (US$1.03 Billion) Cavite-Laguna Expressway (CALAX) project and the P4.8 billion Bicol airport project have recently been approved by the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) Investment Coordination Committee-Cabinet Committee (ICC-CabCom).

The CALAX project involves the construction of a 4-lane, 47.018 kilometer expressway from the end of Cavite Expressway in Kawit, Cavite to Mamplasan Interchange of the South Luzon Expressway in Biñan, Laguna.

"The project is consistent with the Philippine Development Plan 2011-2016's transport sector objective of providing dependable access to production areas such as Cavite and Laguna, being rapidly growing industrial and commercial centers south of Metro Manila," Socioeconomic Planning Secretary Arsenio M. Balisacan said, in a statement.

The P43.319 billion CALAX project will be financed partly through public-private partnership and official development assistance from the Japan International Cooperation Agency.

The roads that will connect the two expressways that goes to the country's capital will be constructed next year!

NEDA OKs NLEx-SLEx road link projects - MVP group

MANILA, Philippines - The National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) has approved both the proposals of Manuel V. Pangilinan-led Metro Pacific Tollways Corp. (MPTC) and Ramon Ang-led San Miguel Corp. for tollway projects that will connect the north and south Luzon expressways.

MPTC President and CEO Ramoncito Fernandez confirmed the approval to reporters on Wednesday, November 7.

"NEDA just approved both connector roads for execution," he said.

MPTC and San Miguel-backed Citra Metro Manila Tollways Corp. earlier submitted to Malacañang their respective proposals to construct roads that will link the North Luzon Expressway and South Luzon Expressway.

The road projects will run from Makati City to Caloocan and Balintawak.

Philippines expressways are nice! They bear many similiarities to Indonesian expressways I see, like the view from the roads.

I have one question, does Philippines has its own uniformed expressway standards?, I think almost all expressways I see here doesn't have any similiarities to each other expressways (like signage. I know that European standards is the one Philippines use for, but I saw that SCTEx use the American one)

In terms of standards, the expressways in the Philippines are built differently from expressways in other countries, sometimes even differently from each other. The most noticeable difference (at least to me) would be the signage. The different expressways each have different signage systems. It's very inconsistent.

If I remember correctly, the Philippines follows the Vienna Convention by law.
Go to the following post: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showpo...&postcount=104 and you'll see that the signs are all different from each other. Only the third one and the last two at least partly conform to the American signage standards.

I'd also like to point out that I do not know of any standard that prescribes the use of this sign: (image from zconson.wordpress.com)


Which is why I'm designing a new signage system based on the British one that I hope will be more efficient:

Thanks for the information chance_deguzman and nice signage design! (I hoping that all Philippines expressway standards would be like that, not like various of uniformed designs like now which is very confusing) Btw, what is "Walang Tawiran Nakamamatay" means? This is the first time I saw a Filipino road sign was written in Tagalog

Walang Tawiran; Nakamamatay = No Crossing; It can kill (you)

Basically a "No Jaywalking" sign, just worded differently.

NLEX Harbor Link is one of two expressways that will connect North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) to South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) that would bypass EDSA Avenue which is the main thoroughfare in Metro Manila.

It's made of two parts and the first part broke ground 07 Feb.

Dark blue backgrounds patched on light blue ones aren't really a good idea - they will fade eventually and you might find they look much less distinct. Plus people might not see it clearly when they are driving fast. Better to use different colour backgrounds for different grades of road.

I was only experimenting with using the dark one, but the British signs didn't use it so I didn't know the results yet. Anyway, I've done another redesign.. http://chancehenrik.x10.mx/blog/256 The sign image above no longer applies.

On the other hand, it isn't really necessary to have to differentiate this much between the light and dark blue. The two are technically two different classes of road, light for expressway and dark for the Asian Highway 26, which is a primary road. I guess the colors are too similar. Would you suggest a better color to use?
