A proposal of San Miguel Corp. to expand its NAIA Expressway (NAIAx) project to Bonifacio Global City in Taguig and Sucat, Paranaque is seen to get the blessing of the National Economic Development Authority-Investment Coordination Committee in the first quarter.
The project is expected to ease traffic on Sales Bridge and cut travel time from the Coastal Road, airport terminal 1,2 & 3, and SM Mall of Asia areas to BGC to just 10 minutes.
“Hopefully, [NEDA] will approve it by first quarter,” Villar said.
The project is also seen to decongest Magallanes and the Edsa-Pasay area.
The expansion of NAIAx may also be linked up with the C5 extension.
This will benefit motorists heading to Sucat, Las Pinas, and C5 who usually spend anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour just getting out of gridlock along airport roads.
NAIAx, which started operations in December 2016, is a 5.4-kilometer, four-lane elevated expressway which connects the Skyway to all three NAIA terminals and the Entertainment City of the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corp.
Aside from the NAIAx, SMC operates the Tarlac Pangasinan-La Union Expressway, the Southern Tagalog Arterial Road, South Luzon Expressway and the Skyway System.
