MANILA, Philippines — San Miguel Corporations (SMC) announced that the two-lane steel ramp connecting the Alabang viaduct to the elevated Skyway system will be used for southbound traffic only starting on Monday, April 19.

“We are asking for your kind understanding and cooperation as we make these necessary adjustments in order to complete the southbound Skyway extension,” said SMC president Ramon Ang in a statement.

SMC said the closure of the steel ramp will also be part of the new traffic rerouting scheme to be implemented by the company’s infrastructure unit to accelerate the construction of the Skyway Extension project.

This comes after the announcement of the permanent closure of the Hillsborough Skyway off-ramp which also aims to speed up the extension project.

FEATURED STORIES

With the steel ramp now fully dedicated to southbound traffic heading to Cavite, Laguna, and Batangas, SMC said northbound motorists looking to take the elevated Skyway can take the following routes:

Class 1 vehicles from SLEX bound for Pasay, Makati, Manila, and Quezon City should take the new northbound ramp of the Skyway Extension Project near Soldiers Hills.

Class 1 vehicles from Alabang bound for Pasay, Makati, Manila, and Quezon City should enter at SLEX Filinvest southbound entry, exit at Susana Heights, make a U-turn, then enter at Susana Heights northbound entry to access the Skyway Extension ramp at Soldiers Hills.

The company said that it is eyeing to complete the southbound section of the Skyway extension by the third quarter of this year.
