The Emilio Aguinaldo Highway, (or simply Aguinaldo Highway) also known as Cavite–Batangas Road and Manila West Road is a four-to-six lane, 41.4-kilometer (25.7 mi), network of primary and secondary highways passing through the busiest towns and cities of Cavite, Philippines. It is the busiest and most congested of the three major highways located in the province, the others are Juanito Remulla Sr. Road (Governor's Drive) and Antero Soriano Highway.
The northern terminus of the highway is at Las Piñas in Metro Manila. It then travels along Bacoor, Imus, Dasmariñas, Silang, and then ends at Tagaytay in Cavite. The highway forms part of the National Route 62 (N62), National Route 419, and National Route 410 (N410) of the Philippine highway network. The highway has several official names, like Manila–Cavite Road and Cavite–Batangas Road. The west alignment of the poblacion area of Silang, is unnumbered as a newer bypass named Silang Bypass Road (or Silang Diversion Road), designated as a tertiary road. The section that connects with Manila–Cavite Expressway (then Coastal Road), called the Aguinaldo Boulevard is also designated as National Route 62 (N62) of the Philippine highway network.
Aguinaldo Highway passes through many establishments such as malls, shops, and government offices. Various high voltage power lines, most notably the Dasmariñas-Las Piñas transmission line (operated and maintained by National Grid Corporation of the Philippines), utilize the highway right of way from its intersection with Aguinaldo Boulevard and Bacoor Boulevard to Barangay San Agustin 2, Dasmariñas for accessibility to work vehicles and also due to scarcity of land for dedicated right of way.
Originally a four-lane, it starts as a continuation of Diego Cera Avenue at Zapote Bridge. It crosses and becomes a six-lane road past Bacoor Boulevard which leads to Molino, Bacoor, and Aguinaldo Boulevard, which connects with Manila–Cavite Expressway. It then intersects with Tirona Highway that leads to Kawit and Cavite City. It then passes Imus and enters Dasmarinas, where it reduces to a four-lane road and becoming a divided highway in most portions. Afterwards, it then intersects with Juanito Remulla Sr. Road (Governor's Drive) at Palapala, Dasmariñas.
Past Palapala, it begins its climb to Tagaytay, passing Silang and then ends in Tagaytay rotunda. The highway continues as Tagaytay–Nasugbu Highway as it passes the rest Tagaytay and Alfonso in Cavite before entering the province of Batangas.
The present road originated from an old road that enters Cavite from Las Piñas. The old roads that predated the Aguinaldo Highway used a different alignment on Bacoor and Imus, that exist until today as a mixture of city-maintained roads and national roads. Portions of the road have been sites of battles of the Philippine Revolution.
During the American colonial era, the road reached as far as Silang, until an extension to Tagaytay was opened. The old roads that passed on the western barangays of Bacoor and Imus are bypassed by a new alignment that existed until today. The road was designated Highway 17 and named Manila West Road, that reached as far as the municipality of Batangas (present-day Batangas City).
