In the midst of a year-long pandemic that totally disrupted and altered plans and timelines, the formal inauguration of the Metro Manila Skyway Stage 3 project (MMSS3), under the “Build Build Build Program” of the Duterte Administration, was held yesterday.
The MMSS3 is part of the overall masterplan to decongest EDSA from the daily horrendous, heavy traffic. Prior to yesterday's historic inaugural, there were lingering doubts about the ability of President Duterte's promise to significantly reduce the EDSA traffic.
But with the cooperative and collaborative endeavors expended by our government, particularly the concerned agencies such as the DPWH, DOF, DOTr, MMDA and the TRB, together with the private sector, that promise has been delivered to become a reality.
Today, the 18-kilometer MMSS3 Project fully opened its lanes, to enable travel time from Buendia to Balintawak to be reduced from 2 hours to just 15 to 20 minutes.
And the MMSS3 is just one of the anchor, game - changing projects fully dedicated to bring comfort to the lives of our people as promised.
With the remaining 534 days in our term, we remain committed and most determined to do the impossible, and make it possible.
