Malacañang asks for united sacrifice as Skyway 3 construction starts
MANILA, Philippines—Malacañang has asked the public for patience as the construction of Skyway 3, which would cause monstrous traffic in Metro Manila, is set to start Monday.
Secretary Herminio Coloma of the Presidential Communications Operations Office said he wishes for a collective sense of sacrifice for the construction for the Manila Skyway Stage 3.
He said that the construction of Skyway 3, which is set to begin on Monday, would “ensure” a faster travel and a better state of living in the “highly congested” National Capital Region.
The 14.8-kilometer, six-lane expressway, which would complete the Skyway system from Alabang to Balintawak is expected to be finished in April 2017.
The Metro Manila Skyway Stage 3 is led by conglomerate San Miguel Corp. and Indonesia’s Citra Group, which was also behind the original Skyway project in the Southern part of the capital district.
