Manila Expressways

Palace OKs skyway project linking NLEX, SLEX

Malacañang has approved the contract for the Metro Manila Skyway (MMS) Stage 3 project which would connect two major expressways in Luzon.

The Department of Transportation and Communication (DOTC) said Friday the new road is expected to help decongest EDSA and other major roads such as Quezon Avenue, Araneta Avenue, Nagtahan, and Quirino.

The agency said the six-lane expressway, which has an approximate length of 14.2 kilometers, is flood-free and mostly elevated.

This is arguably the most important project in Manila. From what I've read, EDSA is a hugely congested road.

This is arguably the most important project in Manila. From what I've read, EDSA is a hugely congested road.
This will definitely help because weekday vehicular traffic here in EDSA is a nightmare (even until Fridays where a lot of people would go on gimmicks, parties and clubbing night-outs and whatnot).

And right on about Quirino and the Nagtahan flyover because on some days, the traffic going from Manila to San Juan gets intense.

So yes, something like this is definitely needed.

With that said, I do hope that the Philippine government (via DPWH) would do something about C-5 as well.

This is great timing for those who plan to take a vacation up-north this Holy Week season.

Carmen Section of TPLEX Opens Today

http://news.pia.gov.ph/index.php?article=561397573721

By: Carlo Lorenzo J. Datu Wednesday 16th of April 2014

TARLAC CITY, April 16 (PIA) -- Diversified conglomerate San Miguel Corporation (SMC), through its subsidiary Private Infra Dev Corporation, Inc. (PIDC), will open today the Paniqui-Carmen stretch of the 88.85-kilometer Tarlac-Pangasinan-La Union Expressway (TPLEX).“This portion brings to 50 kilometers the total length of the TPLEX that is operational following the opening of the 23-kilometer Phase 1 from Tarlac City to Paniqui last year,” PIDC said in a statement.With this, the two-hour travel time from Tarlac to Carmen will be cut to only 30 minutes.Moreover, the remaining 25.83-kilometer part from Urdaneta, Pangasinan to Rosario, La Union will be completed by 2015.From end-to-end, TPLEX will traverse 17 towns and two cities in the provinces of Tarlac, Pangasinan, La Union and Nueva Ecija.It connects the Northern and Central provinces of Luzon to Metro Manila via the North Luzon and Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressways.Originally designed as a two-lane road, SMC decided to upgrade the infrastructure to four lanes to ensure road safety and in anticipation of future traffic growth.

Skyway Columns to Rise Along Osmeña Highway

http://www.mb.com.ph/skyway-columns-...smena-highway/

by Anjo Perez
April 15, 2014

Citra Central Expressway Corporation, the project proponent of the 14.8-km Skyway Stage 3 extension project, divulged yesterday that work on the initial phase of the construction of bored piles that form the foundation of the Skyway superstructure is right on schedule.As vehicular traffic along Osmeña Highway, especially between P. Ocampo St. and Arellano Ave. in Manila, continues to be manageable, Team Skyway Stage 3 also continues to undertake Stage 3 advance work according to schedule.By last Monday, 37 bored piles that form part of the foundation for the Skyway superstructure have been installed.The bored pile work is followed by the installation of pile caps after which the columns are erected.

To date, the 10 columns for the 90-day advance work schedule will be erected by May 16, 2014.Advance work is part of the construction of Section 1 – Buendia to Plaza Dilao/Quirino Ave. Other sections are: Section 2 – Plaza Dilao-Aurora Blvd.;Section 3 – Aurora Blvd-Quezon Ave/Del Monte Ave.; and Section 4 – Quezon Ave.-Bonifacio Ave. /Balintawak.Skyway Stage 3 is the 14.8-km. 2×3 elevated toll way with eight access points in strategic locations that will connect South Luzon Expressway with North Luzon Expressway from Buendia in Makati City to Balintawak in Quezon City.The project aims to decongest traffic in Metro Manila’s major thoroughfares like EDSA, C5 and Central Manila.

It's great that we're using the Motorway Logo Symbol (aka 'CHOPSTICKS') which is used internationally

In November of last year, the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) released the National Route Numbering System (RNS), which standardizes for the first time in a very long time the numbering of major roads and highways in the Philippines. All I can say to this wonderful achievement is, well, finally!

More information on the RNS (including how the numbering system works) is available at http://www.dpwh.gov.ph/infrastructur...w_page_142.htm, and the DPWH has a map of all the routes which I've included below. More detailed maps, meanwhile, are available at http://www.dpwh.gov.ph/infrastructure/R_B/roads.htm.

(WARNING: This map's huge!)
