MANILA, Philippines—President Benigno Aquino III on Wednesday led the launch of the P26.7 billion Metro Manila Skyway Stage 3 project that will connect the South Luzon Expressway (SLEx) and the North Luzon Expressway (NLEx).

Aquino was joined by Transportation Secretary Joseph Emilio Abaya, and Ramon Ang, president and chief operating officer of San Miguel Corporation, which is among the project proponents.


The Stage 3 project, which consists of a 14.8 kilometer six-lane elevated expressway, will complete the Skyway system from Alabang to Balintawak. It is expected to decongest traffic in other main thoroughfares of Metro Manila.


It connects Skyway Stage 1 at Buendia, runs along Osmeña Highway, Quirino Ave. towards Plaza Dilao, continues crossing Pasig River, then cuts through at the back of SM Sta. Mesa towards G. Araneta Ave., crosses Aurora Blvd., E. Rodriguez and Quezon Ave. towards Sgt. E. Rivera then along A. Bonifacio towards Balintawak.

The project’s concessionaire, Citra Central Expressway Corp. (CCEC), is a joint corporation of Citra Lamtoro Gung Persada and the Philippine National Construction Corp. (PNCC) in partnership with San Miguel Corp.

Other officials who attended the ceremony held at the Buendia-end of Skyway Stage 1 were former president Fidel Ramos, Public Works and Highways Secretary Rogelio Singson, Metropolitan Manila Development Authority Francis Tolentino, Citra Metro Manila Tollways Corporation president and chief executive officer Shadik Wahono, CCEC director Dodik Marseno Catur Utomo, and PNCC president and CEO Luis Singson.
