The Cavite–Laguna Expressway (CALAX) is a proposed expressway that will cross the provinces of Cavite and Laguna in the Philippines. The construction of the four-lane 47-kilometre-long (29 mi) expressway will connect CAVITEX in Kawit, Cavite to SLEX-Mamplasan Interchange and will cost an estimated ₱35.42 billion or US$787 million. When constructed, it is expected to ease the traffic in the Cavite–Laguna region, particularly in Aguinaldo Highway, Sta. Rosa-Tagaytay Road and Governor's Drive.
Build-operate-transfer bidding process
There were four pre-qualified bidders vying for the CALAX: Alloy MTD Philippines Inc.; Team Orion, the consortium of AC Infrastructure Holdings Inc., Aboitiz Land Inc., and Macquarie Infrastructure Holdings Philippines; MPCALA Holdings Inc.; and Optimal Infrastructure Development Inc. of San Miguel Corporation.
On June 12, 2014, Team Orion, the joint venture of Ayala Corp. and Aboitiz Equity Ventures Inc., won the bid, placing a concession payment of ₱11.659 billion for the public-private partnership (PPP) project. Optimal Infrastructure was disqualified on grounds that its bid security fell short of the 180 days required by the government. Its bid envelope specified a financial bid of ₱20.105 billion.
