Roads in the Philippines
The Emilio Aguinaldo Highway, (or simply Aguinaldo Highway) also known as Cavite–Batangas Road and Manila West Road is a four-to-six lane, 41.4-kilometre (25.7 mi), network of primary and secondary highways passing through the busiest towns and cities of Cavite, Philippines. It is the busiest and most congested of the three major highways located in the province, the others are Governor's Drive and Antero Soriano Highway.
The highway is a component part of the National Route 62 (N62), National Route 419, and National Route 410 (N410). The highway has several official names, like Manila–Cavite Road and Cavite–Batangas Road. The alignment west of the poblacion area of Silang, is unnumbered as a newer bypass named Silang Bypass Road (or Silang Diversion Road), designated as a tertiary road. The section that connects with Manila–Cavite Expressway (then Coastal Road), called the Aguinaldo Boulevard, remained unnumbered as a tertiary national road.
Aguinaldo Highway passes through many establishments such as malls, shops, and government offices. Various high voltage power lines, most notably the Dasmariñas-Las Piñas transmission line, operated and maintained by National Grid Corporation of the Philippines), utilize the highway right of way from its intersection with Aguinaldo Boulevard and Bacoor Boulevard to Brgy. San Agustin 2, Dasmariñas, Cavite for accessibility to work vehicles and also due to scarcity of land for dedicated right of way.
Originally a four-lane, it starts as a continuation of Diego Cera Avenue at Zapote Bridge. It crosses and becomes a six-lane road past Molino Boulevard which leads to Molino, Bacoor, and Aguinaldo Boulevard, which connects with Manila–Cavite Expressway. It then intersects with Tirona Highway that leads to Kawit and Cavite City. It then passes Imus and enters Dasmarinas, where it reduces to a four-lane road and sometimes becoming a divided highway at some portions. Afterwards, it then intersects with Governor's Drive at Palapala, Dasmariñas.
The present road originated from an old road that enters Cavite from Las Piñas. The old roads that predated the Aguinaldo Highway used a different alignment on Bacoor and Imus, that exist until today as a mixture of city-maintained roads and national roads. Portions of the road have been sites of battles of the Philippine Revolution.
During the American colonial era, the road reached as far as Silang, until an extension to Tagaytay was opened. The old roads that passed on the western barangays of Bacoor and Imus are bypassed by a new alignment that existed until today. The road was designated Highway 17 and named Manila West Road, that reached as far as the municipality of Batangas (present-day Batangas City).
