SAN MIGUEL Corp. (SMC) announced on Monday that it has opened the southbound Quirino exit of its Skyway Stage 3 expressway, but limited to Class 1 vehicles, which include cars, vans and others below seven feet.
With the opening of the Quirino exit, motorists coming from Balintawak and Quezon Avenue can now reach Manila in “less than 20 minutes” from more than an hour without traffic, the company that funded and built the elevated expressway said in an e-mailed statement.
“This will redound to relief from congestion and faster and easier commutes for many of our countrymen on our major thoroughfares,” said SMC President Ramon S. Ang.
The elevated expressway is seen to reduce travel time from the South Luzon Expressway in Alabang to the North Luzon Expressway to about 30 minutes from about three hours. — Arjay L. Balinbin
