NAIA Expressway to be open to the public in the next 54 days
Getting to and from the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) may soon be a breeze once again after the Department of Public Works and Highway (DPWH) announced that NAIA Expressway will be open to the public in the next 54 days.
According to DPWH Secretary Mark Villar, he is confident that the government agency will be able to finish Phase 2 in the coming weeks. Phase 2 connects Macapagal Boulevard to NAIA Terminals 1 and 2.
“We are in the process of doing safety checks. With the help of DOTC, we are confident that the public would soon be able to access a key phase of the NAIA Expressway Project within the first 100 days of President Rodrigo R. Duterte,” Villar said.
Overall, the PhP 17.9 billion project's civil work activities is already at 79% while the Paranaque River alignment project has already been finished.
In review, the NAIA Expressway has a 7.75-kilometer four-lane elevated section, along with a 2.22-kilometer at-grade section that will allow motorists to cross over Sales Avenue, Andrews Avenue, Paranaque River, MIAA Road and Diosdado Macapagal Boulevard.
It also has 16 on- and off-ramps that are in various stages of completion at Villamor Airbase, Resorts World, NAIA Terminal 3, MIAA Road, Imelda Avenue, CAVITEX, Seaside Drive and Diosdado Macapagal Boulevard.
The expressway will also allow motorists coming in from South Luzon Expressway (SLEX), Manila Cavite Toll Expressway (CAVITEX) and Macapagal Boulevard to directly access Terminals 1, 2, 3, and 4.
When finished, the DPWH estimated that it will cut travel time to the NAIA Terminals from 24.3 minutes to about 8.2 minutes.
