SMC opens two new ramps on Skyway Stage 3

San Miguel Corporation (SMC) opened on Thursday two new ramps along the Skyway Stage 3.

One of the newly opened ramps along the 18-kilometer elevated expressway is the A. Bonifacio northbound off-ramp, which is situated just before the Cloverleaf Mall in Balintawak. The other one is the E. Rodriguez southbound off-ramp on Araneta Ave., which also provides access to España. 

“Our Skyway 3 engineers and construction personnel worked double time to be able to open these two new ramps, better serve motorists, and provide them seamless and convenient travel,” SMC president and chief operating officer Ramon S. Ang said in a statement.

“With the opening of these ramps, those who are coming from Alabang, Paranaque, Las Pinas, Pasay, or Makati will no longer have to take EDSA and get stuck in several traffic chokepoints in order to get to Balintawak.  Meanwhile, those coming from NLEX headed to Quezon City, on the other hand, can opt to take Skyway 3 to get to E. Rodriguez Ave,” Ang added.

Ang said that contractors of SMC Infrastructure are working continuously to deliver other access ramps. Full completion of these were delayed due to pending Right-of-Way (ROW) acquisition. 

“Despite delays, we’re excited for the next access points to be opened soon. For northbound motorists, next to be opened will be the Quirino Entry, Nagtahan Entry, Nagtahan Exit, E. Rodriguez Entry, and C3 Exit. For southbound, we will soon open the C3 Entry, C3 Exit, A. Bonifacio Entry, Plaza Dilao Exit, and Nagtahan Exit,” Ang said.

“Once all of these access points are opened, traffic in many parts of Metro Manila, especially major thoroughfares, will be virtually a thing of the past. People will be able to get from one place to another within the city much faster and easier, without the stress. And because of this, our main thoroughfares and city streets will also be decongested, making travel for those not using the expressway better as well,” he added.

Here are the operational access ramps along the Skyway Stage 3:


  • Buendia (Zobel) Entry  
  • Quezon Ave. Entry
  • Quirino Ave. Exit 
  • Quezon Ave. Exit 
  • A. Bonifacio Exit
