MORE ON SKYWAY STAGE 3:
San Miguel Corp. will close the 18-kilometer elevated expressway from Jan. 13, 10 p.m. through the whole day of Jan. 14 for a full inspection, set-up and staging of the opening, and other pre-opening preparation activities.
Some lanes of the skyway were previously opened to vehicular traffic last Dec. 29. The entire expressway will be free to the public until Jan. 29.
"Following the opening, motorists will be able to experience the benefits of all seven lanes and all the features of this game-changing expressway that will reduce travel time from SLEX to NLEX and vice-versa, to only 30 minutes. It will also help decongest traffic on Edsa and many parts of Metro Manila," Skyway management said.
