Question lang.. Yung ginagawa dun sa alabang overpass.. kasama rin ba yun sa Skyway Project? Pansin ko lang kasi binabawasan nila ng 1-2 lanes dun sa southbound lane ng overpass tsaka inaayos nila yung sa me Festival exit. Meron din parang road dun sa me festival exit that I assume will be exit point ng Skyway(Correct me if I'm wrong?)..

Nope...not even close. It leads to nowhere right now and some of the pillars are not even completed yet.

It's nice....just like those viaducts in Japan...

I hope that in the next 15-20 years, the government musn't stop funding for infrastructures like expressways, railways, airports and bridges not only in Metro Manila but for provinces also with a potential to become Ecozones. Just like what Malaysia did for the last 30 years since early 80's.

Skyway project all set
By Ma. Elisa P. Osorio
Wednesday, August 15, 2007


The long delayed continuation of the second phase of the skyway project connecting Bicutan to Alabang is all set as all domestic procedures have finally been completed.

In a chance interview, Trade and Industry (DTI) Secretary Peter B. Favila said “all domestic procedures are okay.”

The Indonesian firm Citra Metro Manila Tollway Corp. finished the Buendia to Bicutan stretch of the skyway project several years back. The stage two has been delayed because of the relatively slow traffic volume of the existing phase coupled with financial troubles of CITRA’s parent company in Indonesia following the collapse of the Suharto government.

In March, President Arroyo said the Philippine National Construction Corp. (PNCC) ratified the joint investment proposal with CITRA for phase 2 of the skyway project.

A month later, Favila announced CITRA has 30 days upon the issuance of the notice to start stage two of the Skyway project or else the contract will be forfeited. Nearly four months after the statement, CITRA has yet to start the 9.9-kilometer toll road.

A Chinese firm has volunteered to continue stage two and stage three of the road project but CITRA invoked its original contract perfected during the administration of former President Fidel V.Ramos. The contract gives CITRA the option to finish the entire road project.

Favila said the government had no choice but to honor the contract but gave CITRA a deadline to proceed with the project. “They really have to work on it,” Favila stressed.

On March 21, Mrs. Arroyo said PNCC would proceed with the extension of the Metro Manila Skyway project stretching from Bicutan to Alabang in Muntinlupa City.

The president pointed out that the completion of the Skyway extension project would offer a more convenient travel for people, facilitate the movement of goods, and further spur business and development in other areas in the Cavite-Laguna-Batangas-Rizal-Quezon (CALABARZON) growth area.

The Skyway project, an overhead motorway along the South Luzon Expressway, is one of the priority projects of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) in the CALABARZON area under the President’s 10-point agenda.

P8-B Gil Puyat Ave.-NLEX Skyway project

Chinese firm opts to build Stage 3


By BERNIE CAHILES–MAGKILAT

China Road and Bridge Corp. (CRBC) has opted out from Stage 2 project (Bicutan to Alabang) of the Skyway with the Citra Metro Manila Tollway Corporation (CMMTC), the joint venture between the Citra Group and the Philippine National Construction Corp. (PNCC), finally exercising its option to undertake the R8-billion elevated expressway (Stage 3).

The Chinese group is interested in undertaking the Stage 3, which will continue from the existing Skyway in Buendia to connect to the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) cutting through Manila.

Trade and Industry Secretary Peter B. Favila told reporters that CMMTC is going to start construction this quarter or 30 days from the issuance of the Notice to Proceed by the Tollways Regulatory Board (TRB).

Stage 2 is a 6.88-kilometer tollroad from Bicutan to Alabang. It is a continuation of the Stage 1, a 9.3 kilometer skyway, which starts from Magallanes to Bicutan.

It could be recalled that in April this year, the Indonesian-owned Citra has invoked that it has the Supplemental Toll Operations Agreement (STOA) as well as the funds to pursue the project.

The China Road and Bridge Corp. had expressed interest to undertake the long-delayed completion of the Skyway project and its extension and linkup with the North Luzon Expressway for an estimated P54 billion.

But the Indonesians hold the STOA, which empowers them to build and operate the Skyway. CITRA already has completed the first stage of the project covering the Buendia to Bicutan stretch.

Citra has committed to complete the project by 2010 although instead of the original 1999 completion schedule.

Should Citra failed to comply with the 30-day period by which to commence construction, the Indonesians are going to lose the contract to other proponent.

The Citra Group, which is headed by the daughter of former Indonesian Prime Minister Suharto, was supposed to have defaulted its right to construct Stage 2.

The Indonesian group, which completed the construction of Stage 1 (Buendia to Bicutan involving 14 kms.) at a cost of 4 million in 1998, was given up to 2006 to exercise its option to undertake Stage 2.

Its joint venture firm, CMMTC, had already constructed 12 advance columns in preparation for the construction of Stage 2 of the skyway.

The Chinese, on the other hand, had proposed to complete the Skyway by constructing of Stage 2 from Bicutan to Alabang and Stage 3 from Buendia to Balintawak for a total project cost of P54 billion.

In fact, it has submitted a proposal to complete the skyway to the National Economic and Development Authority for approval.

The P54 billion-project cost would be funded by the Chinese through concessional loans and equity portion.

Meantime, Stage 3 of the Skyway project proposes to extend the Skyway from Buendia following the old South Super Highway to Quirino Ave. and crossing through Araneta up to the Nagtahan Bridge to connect to C-3 out of Bonifacio going to Balintawak.

But Favila that construction of Stage 3 is met with a huge right of way problem as it has to go through the busy districts in Manila. Already, the local government of Manila has expressed reservations over the planned construction of the Skyway.

The government has yet to decide on what agency would be the implementing arm for the Stage 3 project.

The Skyway will then be connected to the Alabang viaduct, which is being rehabilitated by MTD Capital Bhd. of Malaysia. MTD is also undertaking the project in joint venture with PNCC.

The Skyway project, an overhead motorway along the South Luzon Expressway, is one of the priority projects of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) in the CALABARZON area under the President’s 10-point agenda.

The completion of the extension project is seen to further spur movement of goods and services within the Cavite-Laguna-Batangas-Rizal-Quezon growth area.

for me....i don't think we still need phase 3 of the project....phase 2 is really necessary....but phase 3 with the completion of the railway between the north and the south....parang nabawasan ang need for phase 3....i would rather that government...spend the money on railways...and subways...that is the way of the future.....
