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.

“We call on our people to share in the burden of sacrifice and bear with short-term inconvenience,” Coloma said in a radio interview on Sunday.

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.
