Connecting Communities with Metro Manila Skyway Stage 3


The Skyway Stage 3 opened in late May of this year, signaling another huge milestone in Philippine infrastructure. Opening the southbound Quirino exit to Class-1 vehicles, motorists are now able to cut their commuting time from Balintawak and Quezon Avenue to Manila within less than 20 minutes from 1.5 hours without traffic. 

Also called the Metro Manila Skyway Stage 3 Project (MMSS3), the elevated expressway that runs from Buendia, Makati City to the North Luzon Expressway in Balintawak, Quezon City spans a length of about 18.83 kilometers, with 2 by 3 lanes from Buendia to Sgt. Rivera corner A. Bonifacio, Quezon City, 2 by 2 lanes from Sgt. Rivera corner A. Bonifacio to NLEX Balintawak, Quezon City, and 2 by 3 lanes elevated roadway structure. The infrastructure also connects it to the NLEX-SLEX Connector Road Project in the vicinity of Polytechnic University of the Philippines (PUP).

And if you happen to be living in a luxury house and lot in Tagaytay or any of the luxury homes in Tagaytay or in South of Manila like Crosswinds or Swiss Quadrille Crosswinds, Skyway Stage 3 is a blessing in so many ways.

Anywhere in the world, people want good infrastructures, such as smooth and safe roads, and timely and reliable trains and transportation systems that allow people and cargo to move across a wide range of destinations.

Moreover, for those who are planning to buy a luxury home, or checking out luxury homes for sale in Tagaytay or Tagaytay luxury lots for sale, for example, know location is one of the most important considerations. Before you make the final decision, you want to make sure that your new luxury home has access to important destinations like the supermarket, bank, school, and even those that are essential to you, like your school or workplace. Moreover, you also want to know you have access to alternative routes that have manageable traffic so you do not spend so much unnecessary time on the roads.

Expressways like Skyway Stage are great infrastructure developments that not only connect you to the other cities in Metro Manila, but also other communities important to you. They also help decongest current thoroughfares and provide you route alternatives depending on where you need to go.

The Skyway Stage 3 is part of the Metro Manila Skyway System or Metro Manila Skyway. The Skyway System is an elevated highway that serves as the main expressway in Metro Manila, Philippines. The Skyway System connects the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) and the South Luzon Expressway (SLEX), which are two major thoroughways in Metro Manila. NLEX is a limited-access toll expressway that connects Metro Manila to the provinces of the Central Luzon region in the Philippines. SLEX, on the other hand, is also a limited-access toll expressway that connects Metro Manila to the provinces in the Calabarzon region, and spans from its north exit, Magallanes Interchange, to south exit at Santo Tomas, Batangas, connecting it to the Southern Tagalog Arterial Road.

The recent opening of Skyway Stage 3 and its continuous improvement came as a blessing for all as it aims to shorten travel times within and going out of the Metro significantly. If you’re set to buy a home anytime soon, Skyway Stage 3 also brings you closer to luxury home developments and even luxury lot properties like Tagaytay luxury lots for sale.

An Important Component in National Utilities Delivery

Infrastructure projects allow utility agencies of the government to plan, develop, and deliver utilities throughout Metro Manila and its connecting rural areas.


Major road infrastructure such as the Skyway system is a key piece of the institutional infrastructure not only for the successful decentralization of the connecting rural roads. They also serve as important locations for major utilities such as the electricity grid and water lines. 

Land acquisition to develop the land and install a normal power line may be impractical in certain areas, especially those that may present legal challenges, like densely populated areas. However, utilizing the span and breadth of massive road infrastructures like the Skyway System allows the government to deliver and decentralize the distribution of utilities. One notable power line that uses the Skyway System’s right-of-way, for the most part, is the Hermosa–Duhat–Balintawak transmission line, which is connected to the Hermosa and Balintawak substations of the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP), with line segment termination at the Duhat substation of Manila Electric Company (Meralco), which is located in Bocaue, Bulacan.

Skyway Stage 3 System: A self-Sustaining Project

Back in the old days, people pay a toll, or a user fee. Nowadays, high-tech tolling means you can go and travel to any accessible point. It is also a smart way to fund and finance the highways, bridges, and tunnels that help move our economy, and get people where they want to go to and from your luxury home, whether it is for business or for work.

Tolling is already a proven, viable funding option. It is a central component of the transportation funding system of a country. This is because roads are not truly ever free. And just like investing in a luxury home or a luxury property, it doesn’t mean that you wouldn’t spend anything else well after you have paid the total contract prices.

Our highways are not free nor have they ever been. Even if its development is funded completely by the government or via a public-private partnership, keeping these extensive infrastructure in operations means ensuring that these roads are well-maintained and that there are traffic, emergency, and roadside assistance services are available for the people who are using it. A road, just like your home, requires ongoing upkeep and maintenance, so what more for a massive network of roads? 

Tolls provide a sustainable source of revenue for ongoing road maintenance and improvement. While Skyway 3 has since applied toll rates for people who use the road network, the public is assured that tolling is an innovative and cost-effective approach to ease the transportation infrastructure challenges of the country while providing a safe and reliable option for the traveling public.
