Department of Transportation (DOTr) Secretary Arthur Tugade, along with other DOTr officials, conducted earlier today, 26 May 2018, a site visit to inspect progress at the Cavite Gateway Terminal Phase 1 Project in Tanza, Cavite.

The Cavite Gateway Terminal Phase 1 will accommodate barges, which will ferry 20 and 30-footer container trucks now plying the routes of Metro Manila from Subic Port in the North and Batangas Port from the South.

Dubbed as the first barge terminal of its kind in the Philippines, the project will have 550 ground slots for containers.

An estimated two to three hours of ferry time, with initial multiple pick-up locations from Cavite-Manila, Cavite-Batangas, and other future routes such as Cavite-Subic, this facility will have empty depot.

This original concept of Secretary Tugade, under the leadership of President Rodrigo Duterte, was silently constructed, aimed at decongesting Metro Manila traffic by reducing the number of cargo trucks plying its roads by 50%.

"Malaking tulong ang proyektong ito para maibsan ang parating dinaraing na traffic ng mga motorista sa Metro Manila, lalo na ng mga working class. Kahit papaano ‘pag nawala iyong mga mahahabang truck na katumbas ng hanggang tatlong sasakyan, mararamdaman natin ang kaunting ginhawa,” Sec. Tugade said.

Also present in the inspection were DOTr Usec. for Finance Garry De Guzman, Usec. for Aviation and Airports Manuel Antonio Tamayo, Officer-in-charge Usec. for Administration Artemio Tuazon, Jr., Asec. for Maritime Fernando Juan Perez, and CAAP Director General Jim Sydiongco.

Now at over 90% completion, and with over 300 manpower working 24/7, the Cavite Gateway Terminal project is slated for launch before the end of June 2018.
