SMC opens Skyway Stage 3’s Nagtahan exit ramps

San Miguel Corporation (SMC) formally opened on Thursday the Nagtahan northbound and southbound exit ramps of the Skyway Stage 3 elevated expressway.

In a statement, SMC president Ramon S. Ang said that with the opening of the Nagtahan exit ramps, motorists can expect to further cut their travel time to Manila.

“We are committed to fully delivering the remaining access ramps of Skyway 3 in the soonest possible time. With the Nagtahan exits, motorists coming from both SLEX and NLEX or other points of entry to the Skyway 3, can now opt to get to their destinations in Manila faster, without having to go through traffic, or contribute to traffic on major public roads and busy streets,” Ang said.

Here’s a list of the operational access ramps of the Skyway Stage 3:


  • Buendia (Zobel) entry
  • Quirino Avenue exit
  • Nagtahan exit
  • Quezon Avenue exit
  • Quezon Avenue entry
  • A. Bonifacio exit
  • Balintawak exit


  • Balintawak entry
  • Quezon Avenue exit
  • Quezon Avenue entry
  • E. Rodriguez exit
  • Nagtahan exit
  • Plaza Dilao entry
  • Buendia (Zobel) exit

“The concessionaire is taking advantage of the dry season to fast-track the completion of ramps as we want more motorists to reap the benefits of additional interchanges in between Buendia and NLEX,” Public Works and Highways Sec. Mark Villar said.

“The timely opening of all interchanges will also further reduce traffic along major NCR roads, most specifically Edsa, Quezon Avenue, Araneta Avenue. Nagtahan, and Quirio Avenue,” he added.

Meanwhile, Ang said that the northbound ramps that will be opened next are the Quirino exit (heading to Roxas Blvd.), Quirino entry, Nagtahan entry, E. Rodriguez Entry, and Sgt. Rivera (C3) exit. Meanwhile, southbound access points to be opened soon are the A. Bonifacio entry, Sgt. Rivera (C3) exit, Sgt. Rivera (C3) entry, and Quirino exit.

SMC, which fully-funded the Skyway Stage 3 project, including the acquisition of right-of-way properties and reconstruction of public bridges to ensure no government funds or taxpayer money is spent on the project, officially opened the main alignment of the elevated expressway last January. However, due to right-of-way issues, delivery of some access ramps had to come a little later.

Recently, SMC also opened the four-kilometer northbound section of the Skyway Extension project from Susana Heights to Sucat, allowing motorists from provinces south of Metro Manila to directly access the Skyway System without having to go through the Alabang viaduct.

“With the recent opening of Skyway Extension project, motorists from Batangas, Laguna, Cavite now enjoy the convenience of seamless travel to many points in Metro Manila, all the way to NLEX. With work on the southbound section now at an accelerated pace, we are closer to fully realizing seamless connection between southern and northern Luzon,” Ang said.
