Philippines' Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) announced on April 1st that the bidding for the 47-kilometer Cavite-Laguna Expressway PPP deal has been moved by a month.

In a bid bulletin, DPWH said the deadline for bids has been pushed back to May 21st from the original schedule of April 21st. DPWH has given interested parties until April 7 to submit queries.

The four qualified bidders for the project are the following:

For the CALAX project, the private partner shall finance, design, construct, operate and maintain the 47 kilometers close-system toll expressway starting from the existing Cavite Expressway (CAVITEX) and ending at South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) Mamplasan Interchange in Binan, Laguna.  This covers the 28.9 km Cavite Section from Kawit to Silang and the 18.1 km Laguna Section from Silang to SLEX.

CALAX is the DPWH's third and biggest infrastructure project under the government's public-private partnership (PPP) program with a project cost of 35.42 billion pesos (US$806 million).

The first project, the Daang Hari-SLEX, was awarded to the Ayala group, while the second, the NAIA Expressway, went to Optimal Infrastructure.
