New traffic scheme with Alabang-Zapote Road elevated ramp scheduled closure starting Dec. 9
MANILA, Philippines — San Miguel Corporation (SMC) on Saturday implemented a new traffic scheme to ease traffic congestion as the Alabang-Zapote Road elevated ramp near the Bunye South Station will be closed Mondays through Saturdays starting Dec. 9 (Monday).
In a statement, SMC said the ramp’s northbound lane will be closed from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. while the southbound lane will be closed from 6 a.m. to 8 a.m. The ramp is open on Sundays, the SMC said.
With the closure, SMC has advised motorists to follow its new traffic rerouting scheme:
Motorists headed to the northbound elevated Skyway must use the ramp before the Sucat area.
Meanwhile, southbound motorists must use the new Alabang viaduct-Skyway ramp at the Alabang viaduct.
Motorists headed to Alabang or the Alabang-Zapote road can exit at the Filinvest Toll plaza.
SMC President Ramon Ang vowed that traffic at South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) will continue to improve amid the ongoing construction of the Skyway Extension Project.
Ang said traffic will improve due to the opening of a new Alabang viaduct-Skyway ramp and reopening of the third at-grade lane of the Skyway on Dec. 1.
“We’ve seen a big improvement in the flow of traffic at the SLEX this past week. Traffic moves quickly even during peak rush hours, and there is no longer a sea of cars on the SLEX,” Ang said in the same statement.
The reopening of the new ramp and third at-grade lane increased the number of northbound lanes from three lanes to five lanes, SMC said.
