    “We are happy to announce that this toll-free road will be able to cut travel time from Bicutan to Taytay and vice versa from an hour to just 30 minutes or less,” claimed Villar in a press release. He highlighted the 3-meter-stretch protected bike lane and 1.5-meter pedestrian sidewalk that would provide order and safety to the motorists.

    “Aside from increased mobility, this project acts as an armored elevated dike protecting Taguig City against possible flooding,” added Villar. “The Laguna Lake Highway can also be a temporary evacuation area during the occurrence of floods.”

    The Laguna Lake Highway is composed of a two (2) lane concrete road plus a two (2) meter-wide planting strip and drainage. Apart from that, it also includes a widened of three (3) bridges namely the Napindan Bridge, Barkadahan Bridge, and Tapayan Bridge.
