MANILA, Philippines — The Skyway Stage 3, which links North Luzon Expressway (NLEx) to the elevated highway above the South Luzon Expressway (SLEx), will be closed indefinitely starting at 5 p.m. of March 16, the San Miguel Corp. (SMC) Infrastructure announced on Twitter.

The closure is in compliance with a directive issued by the Toll Regulatory Board (TRB).

The tollway will only be reopened once all ramps to and from it have been completed.

“Apologies for the inconvenience, SMC Infrastructure has no choice but to comply,” the firm said in its tweet.

FEATURED STORIES

The Skyway Stage 3 was opened on Dec. 28, 2020, with the SMC promising to waive toll fees for a month before it finalizes the road. The fee-less trips continued well into March, as TRB said that SMC Infrastructure could not collect toll fees unless the skyway is finished and unless the fees are approved.

Last Jan. 19, news broke that a full trip from the NLEx’ Balintawak exit up to the Skyway exit in Buendia would cost around P274.

Aside from the end-to-end trip from Balintawak to Buendia, Skyway Stage 3 also has several exits in Quezon City, Manila, San Juan, and Makati that are expected to decongest major thoroughfares in Metro Manila, especially EDSA.
