The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH), led by Sec. Mark Villar, recently opened to motorists the Php 264-million flyover project at Aguinaldo-Daang Hari Intersection in Imus City, Cavite.
Villar said that the four-lane flyover in Barangay Anabu, Imus will solve the heavy traffic flow in Aguinaldo Highway – Daanghari Road intersection and nearby roads leading to the Cavite-Laguna Expressway (CALAX).
The opening of the newly-completed flyover will improve the living standards of the people near the area and will fast-track the delivery of goods and services towards sustaining the growth and development of Imus City and even neighboring Dasmariñas City in the Province of Cavite.
This is a vital project that will cut in half travel time of about 15 to 30 minutes from Daang-Hari Road – the main road to and from thickly populated Cavite and Metro Manila, going to Malagasang-Bucandala-Alapan Road, added Secretary Villar.
The flyover is expected to eliminate delays especially for the through traffic movement at Daang Hari Road and will also result in savings on vehicle operating costs.
Villar said that the Aguinaldo-Daang Hari Intersection Flyover will also have an impact on the government’s program for air pollution control as the reduction of heavy traffic along the intersection had the added benefit of reducing carbon emissions due to idling of vehicles.
The project was implemented by DPWH Regional Office IV-A headed by Regional Director Samson Hebra together with the Cavite 1st District Engineering Office.
