Alabang Sucat Skyway Extension (Northbound) open for motorists by Q2 2021

The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) is set to open the northbound portion of the Alabang Sucat Skyway Extension to motorists the second quarter of 2021.

Vehicles going to Cavite, Laguna and other parts of Southern Luzon will soon experience faster travel times with the expected completion of the three-lane skyway extension. The project aims to alleviate traffic conditions with the elevated roadway merging with the South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) through the Alabang Viaduct.

Just last month, concessionaire San Miguel Corporation (SMC) announced closure of the Alabang Southbound Toll Plaza of the South Luzon Expressway to give way to the expedited work on the Skyway Extension project.

On Wednesday, March 10, 2021, DPWH Secretary Mark Villar expressed optimism in the conducted inspection. The 3.9-kilometer Sucat-Alabang Skyway Extension Project is set to provide convenient travel to motorists who will be diverted from the at-grade segment of the skyway to the elevated link.

“With 61% of the project already complete, travel time from the Skyway main line toll plaza in Sucat, Paranaque to Susana Heights in SLEX will soon be reduced by around 50%, greatly easing the traffic situation for those who are going home to the provinces,” said Secretary Villar.

According to the Secretary, the road project also includes the widening of the Skyway Alabang Toll Plaza which will allow the tollway to accommodate more motorists coming from both the Northbound and Southbound directions.

“We are targeting completion of the northbound segment second quarter of this year while the southbound segment is being fast-tracked for delivery on September as part of our goal”, added the DPWH Secretary.
