Starting July 12, motorists will need to pay toll in the Skyway Stage 3, San Miguel Corp said after allowing free use of the elevated highway for nearly seven months.
The Toll Regulatory Board has issued an operating permit on Skyway stage 3 allowing the collection of fees lower than the original proposed ones, San Miguel said.
"We know from experience that times are hard for many, and even a little relief for motorists can go a long way. These toll rates reflect our deferral of the collection of a substantial amount of the cost to build Skyway 3. We also further lowered the rates for those traveling shorter distances,” said San Miguel president Ramon Ang.
Final approved toll rates will be posted at toll plazas prior to the start of collection, the conglomerate said.
The 18-kilometer Skyway Stage connects the South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) to North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) and has a capacity of 200,000 vehicles daily.
