DPWH Advisory for Alternative Routes to Manila Airport

Tuesday, October 14, 2014

Aware of the impact on traffic of the on-going NAIA (Ninoy Aquino International Airport) Expressway within the bounds of Pasay and Parañaque Cities, the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) advises motorists to consider EDSA and Roxas Boulevard in going to and from the airport.

As construction activities shift to high gear at NAIA Expressway, a 7.15 kilometer four (4) lane elevated expressway project under the Public Private Partnership (PPP) Program, we anticipate that vehicular movement along the vicinity of Andrews Avenue, Domestic Road, MIA Road and Diosdado Macapagal Boulevard will be affected by the on-going works, said DPWH Secretary Rogelio L. Singson.

Singson advised that while the proponent San Miguel Corporation thru their infrastructure arm Optimal Infrastructure Development Inc. and their nominated civil work contractors will do their best to manage traffic along the road network traverse by the project, we hope the motorists and commuters will also plan their trips, be aware of the traffic conditions leading to airport, and take other route options.

To date, cumulative work accomplishment is at 10.6% with construction implementation divided into two phases: phase II-A between Entertainment City to NAIA Terminals 1 & 2 and phase II-B from Domestic Road to Terminal 3 at Sales Street.

The project will provide better access to the NAIA and PAGCOR Entertainment City and will connect to the Skyway network of Metro Manila with the existing Manila South Luzon Expressway at Sales Interchange.

About 80,000 travellers per day will benefit from reduced travel time once the elevated road opens as scheduled by October 2015.
