SMC’s Skyway adds lanes for faster toll collection
Skyway O&M Corporation, a unit of conglomerate San Miguel Corp., is set to open a newly completed runway toll plaza.
Located on the northbound section of the elevated Skyway near the NAIA on-ramp, the new toll plaza, consists of three lanes dedicated to the faster Electronic Toll Collection (ETC) system and four cash lanes—with up to five tellers per lane–dedicated to cash payments.
These new lanes are designed to better handle increased traffic volume by facilitating faster toll collection.
“At Skyway, traffic volume is a reality we all have to contend with. But for our part, we continue to look for ways to manage traffic better,” said San Miguel president Ramon S. Ang.
“This new toll plaza is an enhancement to the Skyway that we initiated in order to facilitate more efficient toll collection. With dedicated ‘ETC’lanes and ‘Cash’lanes that can accommodate more tellers per lane, we’re hoping to improve traffic throughput at the toll plazas,”he added.
