SMC opens Skyway Stage 3 Quirino southbound exit

San Miguel Corp. (SMC) has opened the Quirino exit of the Skyway Stage 3 to Class 1 vehicles, cutting travel time from Balintawak and Quezon Avenue to Manila to less than 20 minutes from 1.5 hours without traffic congestion.

Ramon S. Ang, the company’s president, said the opening of the Quirino southbound exit will greatly improve accessibility from Quezon City and Manila, helping reduce congestion in major roads and other alternate routes.

“With more private vehicles diverted to Skyway Stage 3 on their way back from Nlex, or coming from Quezon Ave., to Manila, traffic on our major public roads as well as on streets usually utilized as ‘short cuts’ or ‘alternate routes,’ will be a thing of the past. This will redound to relief from congestion and faster and easier commutes for many of our countrymen on our major thoroughfares,” he said.

He also assured motorists that the group will honor its commitment of helping provide greater accessibility to motorists through traffic decongestion.

“We remain dedicated to providing convenient and seamless travel for motorists to help decongest Metro Manila and enable growth in all areas that we reach.”

The group is awaiting the full completion of the right-of-way delivery to deliver the other access ramps. There are currently 15 operational ramps on the elevated expressway.

“The full completion of Skyway Stage 3 will divert at least 75,000 vehicles away from Edsa or C5. This is a realization of President Duterte’s promise to decongest Edsa. Skyway Stage 3 is proof that the private sector and the government can work together towards a unified solution,” Department of Public Works and Highways Secretary Mark A. Villar said.
