Authorities will remove heavy equipment and road obstructions used for Skyway extension project on December that will decongest South Luzon Expressway, the manager said.

One-way traffic scheme was enforced in SLEX East Service Road to speed up the Skyway extension, according to Skyway O&M Corporation (SOMCO) president, Manuel Bonoan.


“The purpose of that is magkaroon kami ng kaunting space pa para mabilisan namin iyong ginagawa namin d’yan sa portion ng Skyway, para matapos namin ito lahat by end of November, wala na tayong sagabal sa December. Iyong service road ang medyo binabantayan namin ngayon dahil nga para magiging smoother iyong traffic… Inside the expressway, I think manageable na doon sa pagdaloy ng traffic,” he said.


Starting October 14, the entry of northbound trucks in SLEX during certain hours will be limited by the authorities that are very cooperative to further reduce traffic.
