In mid-May the DPWH extended the bid submission for CALAX to June 2. The original deadline was on April 21, but the agency moved it to May 21.

The four bids were submitted by the four qualified bidders for the project:

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.
