NLEX, SLEX NOW CONNECTED VIA SKYWAY 3 AS SAN MIGUEL COMPLETES ‘LINK’ PROJECT
San Miguel Corp said it has finished the Skyway Stage 3 project that will connect the country’s two main toll roads.
San Miguel president and chief operating officer Ramon Ang announced that over the weekend, the company finished construction of the entire 17.93-km stretch of Skyway 3 that will link the South Luzon Expressway with the North Luzon Expressway.
Skyway 3 is expected to cut travel time between SLEX and NLEX to just 20 minutes from 3 hours at present, by bypassing Metro Manila’s main roads.
The project was originally targetted to be finished by March this year, but a fire caused parts of the structure to collapse in February. The COVID-19 pandemic also caused delays in construction.
But Ang said the company was still able to finish the project ahead of its Oct. 31 schedule.
