The DPWH said the new elevated expressway will connect Macapagal Avenue and Pagcor Entertainment City in Pasay City to NAIA Terminals 1 and 2 in Parañaque City.

“This project would effectively improve traffic flow in the area and will cut travel time by at least 60 percent,” DPWH Secretary Mark Villar said.

He said they are aiming finish the second section that would connect NAIA Terminals 1, 2, and 3 to the South Luzon Expressway before Christmas.

Also, he said the DPWH will maintain 24/7 operations in this project.
