The Toll Regulatory Board (TRB) clarified on Tuesday that it did not issue a directive ordering the indefinite closure of Skyway Stage 3.
“The position of the TRB and its management is to keep Skyway Stage 3 OPEN for the benefit of all motorists,” it said.
The clarification came on the heels of an advisory from Skyway O&M Corporation, which said that the 18-kilometer elevated expressway will be closed indefinitely beginning March 16 at 5 p.m. “in accordance with the Toll Regulatory Board directive.”
“As per TRB directive, the Skyway Stage 3 will be reopened when all ramps are completed,” it said on Monday evening.
However, Skyway O&M Corporation’s tweet has been deleted following the clarification of the TRB.
San Miguel Corporation formally opened the expressway linking the South Luzon Expressway and North Luzon Expressway on January 15.
