Motorists heading to Cavite, Laguna and other parts of Southern Luzon will soon have faster trips with the anticipated completion of the three-lane Skyway Extension that connects the elevated Skyway to the South Luzon Expressway (SLEX), through the Alabang Viaduct.
Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Secretary Mark A. Villar said the 3.9-kilometer Sucat-Alabang Skyway Extension Project will provide convenient travel to motorists who will be diverted from the at-grade segment of the Skyway to the elevated link.
“With 61% of the project already complete, travel time from the Skyway mainline toll plaza in Sucat, Paranaque to Susana Heights in SLEX will soon be reduced by around 50%, greatly easing the traffic situation for those who are going home to the provinces,” Villar said.
Villar also announced that the project includes widening of the Skyway Alabang Toll Plaza to accommodate more motorists from both Northbound and Southbound directions.
“We are targeting completion of the northbound segment in the second quarter of this year while the southbound segment is being fast-tracked for delivery in September as part of our goal”, Villar added.
