Traffic rerouting options laid out due to Skyway 3 construction

/ 08:34 AM February 17, 2014

MANILA, Philippines – The Skyway O & M Corporation (Somco) on Monday released its rerouting options for motorists avoiding the Skyway Stage 3 construction works.

“Motorists who want to avoid the stretch of Osmeña Highway (in straight line) between Quirino Ave. and Buendia-end of Skyway-Slex may use the various alternate routes shown in broken lines,” Somco’s posted image over Twitter said.


The image showed nearby roads such as Edsa, Quirino Ave., Taft Ave., Roxas Blvd., Macapagal, and Ayala Ave., among others, as alternate routes.


The Skyway Stage 3 construction will start Monday night, coinciding with the construction of another roadwork connecting the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Expressway Phase 2 to the seaside Entertainment City.

The 14.8-kilometer, six-lane expressway launched Jan. 22 was supposed to reduce travel time from Buendia to Balintawak from two hours to 20 minutes or less.

Its construction, however,  was expected to cause heavy traffic in the area.

The project, worth P26.7 billion, will complete the Skyway system from Alabang to Balintawak and will connect the South Luzon Expressway (Slex) and the North Luzon Expressway (Nlex).

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.
