The Manila–Cavite Expressway, more commonly known as CAVITEX and formerly as Aguinaldo Boulevard, is a 14 km (8.7 mi) long access-controlled toll expressway linking Manila to the southern province of Cavite in the Philippines. It is considered part of the Radial Road 1 (R-1) of Metro Manila. It is owned and operated by the Public Estates Authority Tollway Corporation (PEATC), a government owned corporation and a subsidiary of the Public Estates Authority, an office under the Office of the President. It is also nicknamed the Coastal Road because of its vicinity to the Manila Bay.

At the north end, it feeds into and from Roxas Boulevard in the city of Parañaque in Metro Manila, also part of R-1. At the south end, it splits into two terminii, both along the north coast in Kawit, Cavite. One feeds into the intersection of Tirona Highway and Antero Soriano Highway. Left backtracks through Binakayan back to Bacoor, straight proceeds on Soriano towards the Cavite Economic Zone, and right proceeds towards the highway's other terminus on Tirona Highway near the Aguinaldo Shrine heading towards Noveleta.

In 2011, the extension going to Kawit, Cavite, which is named as CAVITEX, was opened to the public, where it will eventually connect to C-6, the now-under-construction Bulacan-Rizal-Manila-Cavite Regional Expressway and to the proposed Cavite-Laguna Expressway. Meanwhile, when the C-5 Road and the NAIA Expressway are extended southward, it will also eventually be connected to those expressways as well. It will be the street alignment of the Manila LRT-1 South Extension when completed in Parañaque. It will have 2 stations, namely: Asia World and Ninoy Aquino International Airport.

The highway features a limited number of interchanges. The original south terminus of the expressway in Bacoor has being converted to a full trumpet interchange. There are two toll barriers on the expressway: the original barrier at Las Piñas and the extension barrier in Kawit. Vehicles are charged a flat toll rate based on class. PEATC has also incorporated a near-field communication prepaid card it calls E-TAP. The Expressway is now also accepting an electronic toll collection system called Easydrive set up by Easytrip Serivices Corporation, which currently manages ETC for the North Luzon Expressway (however, Easydrive is not cross-compatible with the NLEX's Easytrip).[citation needed]


Las Piñas Toll Barrier

Tolls are assessed in each direction at each barrier, based on class. In accordance with law, all toll rates include a 12% Value-Added Tax.

Class Las Piñas Kawit
1 24.00 ₱64.00
2 ₱48.00 ₱129.00
3 ₱72.00 ₱194.00


These are the status of the exits of Manila Cavite Expressway. On the expressway segment, exit numbers start at 9. As of now there is no official 'KM 0.' Officially, the stretch of road north of NAIA Road is Roxas Boulevard, however there are a few important intersections on that short section up to EDSA. Exit numbers currently are not posted anywhere on the expressway.
