San Miguel Corp. (SMC) announced that the Skyway 3’s temporary night-time closures will be extended in preparation for the elevated expressway’s formal opening on January 14.

In a statement, the Skyway management said that the Skyway 3 project from Buendia in Makati to North Luzon Expressway will be open throughout the day, especially through morning and evening rush hours. However, the elevated expressway will be closed from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m. from January 8 up to January 13.

“We are working to make sure that the 18-kilometer north-south stretch of Skyway 3 will be ready for official opening starting January 14. That is why we need to close it during non-peak, late night to early morning hours. We need to complete finishing work on the main stretch,” SMC president and chief operating officer Ramon S. Ang.

The temporary closure will give way to the installation of street lamps along the expressway.

“This is to enhance safety especially for motorists driving at night, and overall maintain the qood quality of the experience of driving on the new expressway,” the company said.

“Again, we thank motorists for the positive feedback, their enthusiasm, and patience. This project is one of the most significant infrastructure achievements in our country—a game-changer that links north and south, and completes the backbone of future economic growth. Along with other important infra projects, it reflects our positive attitude and outlook for the future despite the challenges we face today,” Ang said.

“That is why we will work hard to make sure it will serve Filipinos well, provide convenience and safety, contribute to lessening traffic congestion, and help boost our economic recovery, he added.

SMC opened an initial four lanes of the 18-kilometer expressway last December 29.
