  • Skyway Stage 3 Scheduled For Soft Opening With Free Toll For One Month!
  • The much-awaited Skyway 3 project by the San Miguel Corporation (SMC), the country’s longest elevated expressway, is soft-opening this vital link between southern and northern Luzon starting December 29 and they are making it free to motorists for one month!

    For the partial opening, President and Chief Operating Officer Ramon S. Ang said motorists will be able to use up to four lanes of Skyway 3 while all seven lanes of the entire 18-kilometer stretch from Buendia, Makati to NLEX will formally open on January 14, 2021.

    Ang said that the company would have soft-opened the expressway sooner, but disruptions caused by recent typhoons meant more time needed to allow for the sufficient curing of concrete, and proper preparation for asphalting.

    Together with Skyway 1, 2, and Skyway extension which have a total of 20 kilometers, Skyway 3 extends the entire Skyway system to 38 kilometers. With the completion next year of the Skyway Extension project at the southern end, from Susanna Heights to Alabang, the entire Skyway will have 36 access points on both sides, from end-to-end.

    It is seen to dramatically reduce travel time between Makati to NLEX to only 20 minutes, and Alabang and NLEX to only 30 minutes. It will also serve as an alternative to Edsa for those traveling between Metro Manila cities, reducing traffic on the country’s busiest thoroughfare.
