"We are working to make sure that the 18-kilometer north-south stretch of Skyway 3 will be ready for official opening starting Jan. 14. That is why we need to close it during non-peak, late night to early morning hours. We need to complete finishing work on the main stretch," said San Miguel Corp President Ramon Ang.
In an earlier statement, SMC said it was installing street lights along the stretch of Skyway Stage 3, which aims to enhance safety for motorists on the road at night.
