Public Works and Highways Secretary Mark Villar led the opening of the Maitim and Kaybagal Section of the ongoing 4-lane Tagaytay Bypass Road Project in Tagaytay, Cavite today.

Public Works and Highways Secretary Mark Villar on Wednesday, October 21, 2020 led the inauguration of the 1.54 kilometer road segment which is also complete with bike lane component.

The 1.54 kilometer road segment also has a bike lane component. Secretary Villar’s Department Order 88 series of 2020 requires the inclusion of bike lanes in all future national road and bridge projects.

The two opened segments are part of the 8.59-kilometer Tagaytay Bypass Road which will divert traffic within the congested city roads of Tagaytay, running through Luksuhin, Sikat, Zambal, Guinhawa, Patutong Malaki, Balagbag, Salaban, Kaybagal, and Maitim road sections.

“The opening of these two sections is only the beginning as we have been prioritizing the inclusion of Tagaytay Bypass Road Project in the national budget since 2018,” said the DPWH Secretary. The Tagaytay Bypass Road when completed will reduce to only 20 minutes travel time from Alfonso towards Tagaytay City, saving as much as 33 minutes from the usual 53 minutes according to Secretary Villar.

The DPWH is also currently implementing road opening and concreting at the 746-meter Balagbag Section, road opening of 1.32-kilometer Salaban Section, road concreting of 590-meter Guinhawa Section; and road opening and concreting of 580-meter Patuto Section 3. P466.24 million has been released so far by DPWH for the ongoing and completed sections of the bypass road project.
