Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Secretary Mark. Villar announced the opening of Circulo Del Mundo Bypass road on the first minute of December 30.
“Circulo Del Mundo Bypass road is a 125 lineal meter bypass road which will further reduce traffic congestion around the vicinity of Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Terminal 3. It is now open to the public,” Villar said.
“This is a dedicated lane for motorists coming from Sales Avenue to NAIA Terminal 3,” he said.
The Circulo Del Mundo bypass road is expected to complement the NAIA Expressway Christmas Lane and the existing NAIA expressway road network, which already connected Macapagal Boulevard and Pagcor Entertainment City to NAIA Terminals 1, 2, and 3, Skyway and Cavitex.
“We expect a surge of passengers using our airports during the holiday season. The opening of the Circulo Del Mundo bypass road is expected to reduce traffic to NAIA 3 to about 40%,” Villar said.
“We have maintained 24/7 operations in the area to meet our project deadline. We will continue to do so until the project is completed,” he added.
The P20.45-billion NAIA Expressway Project is a four-lane, 12.65-kilometer elevated expressway (including ramps) and 2.22-kilometer at-grade road traversing Sales Avenue, Andrews Avenue, Parañaque River, MIAA Road and Diosdado Macapagal Boulevard.
When all phases are completed, the Naia Expressway Project is expected to provide easy access to and from NAIA Terminals 1, 2, 3 and 4 and will interface with the South Luzon Expressway through Sales Interchange, Manila Cavite Toll Expressway and Macapagal Boulevard.
A total of 16 off and on ramps are being constructed along strategic locations at Villamor Airbase, Resorts World, Naia Terminal 3, MIAA Road, Imelda Avenue, Cavitex, Seaside Drive and Diosdado Macapagal Boulevard.
