To achieve national progress in the real sense is to put in place modern infrastructure.
Being one of Asia’s growing economies in the early 1990’s, the Philippines needed to maintain the correlation between economic growth and infrastructure investments. At that time, one of the Metro Manila’s biggest setbacks in stepping up productivity and increasing business opportunities that could spur economic growth was the worsening traffic situation especially along the Alabang –Makati corridor.
In recognizing this, the administration of then President Fidel V. Ramos sought private investments in projects that could pump-prime the economy and help decongest vehicular traffic in the Megacity’s central business district.
One such project was his administration’s flagship project: the Metro Manila Skyway Project (SMMSP). Aimed to serve as the vital link between Metro Manila and the growth centers north and south of it, the MMSP was pursued by FVR who laid the groundwork for the public-private partnership of the state-owned Philippine National Construction Corporation (PNCC) and Jakarta-based Citra Lamtoro Gung Persada (CITRA).
The South Metro Manila Skyway Project consists of 4 stages:
Construction of 9.5km Buendia-Bicutan elevated tollway and the rehabilitation of the Magallanes-Alabang section of the SLEX.
Construction of 6.88km Bicutan-Alabang elevated tollway.
Construction of the 18.5km Buendia-Balintawak (NLEX) elevated Tollway.
Metro Manila Tollway, a component of the C-6 road at the eastern corridor of Metro Manila from Skyway at-grade section in Bicutan to NLEX in Marilao.
The South Metro Manila Skyway Project (SMMSP) is a modern six-lane elevated toll expressway built above the existing at-grade highway from Makati City to Muntinlupa City. It includes the rehabilitation of the South Luzon Expressway from Magallanes to Alabang.
Citra Metro Manila Tollways Corporation, the SMMSP developer, initiated the implementation of an integrated toll road network which one of the country’s most significant infrastructure projects, aimed at helping decongest Metro Manila’s major road system and increase the area’s economic opportunities.
Known as the Skyway System, SMMSP effectively doubles the road capacity to accommodate 300,000 vehicles daily, easing the flow of traffic between the country’s major urban centers and the industrial heartland.
