Skyway Stage 3 will remain open to motorists, according to San Miguel Corp. (SMC) president and chief operating officer Ramon Ang.
Ang on March 16 confirmed that there will be no closure of the expressway, following a statement by the Toll Regulatory Board (TRB) denying it issued a directive to indefinitely close Skyway Stage 3 starting 5 p.m. of March 16, 2021.
“The position of the TRB and its management is to keep Skyway Stage 3 open for the benefit of all motorists,” TRB said.
The agency’s statement followed an announcement late March 15 by the Skyway management that Skyway Stage 3 would be closed indefinitely and would be reopened when all ramps were completed, in accordance with a TRB directive.
Skyway Stage 3, built and fully funded by SMC, officially opened to motorists last January 15, allowing motorists to bypass EDSA and other busy streets in Metro Manila.
Seamlessly connecting South Luzon Expressway with North Luzon Expressway, the Skyway will also serve as an alternative thoroughfare to EDSA, with its eight access points that traverse Makati, Manila, San Juan, and Quezon City.
Last February, SMC opened two new ramps and said more north and south access ramps will follow.
