I had a very pleasant surprise when I went home to Cavite this morning after a 4-Day/3-Night stay in Batanes. The new section of the Metro Manila Skyway all the way to Alabang is now open! As a result, the travel from Osmeña Highway to Alabang took approximately 15 minutes. Yey! I expect that my usual 3-hour daily commute to and from Cavite will be cut down to just 2-2.5 hours. The Philippine Daily Inquirer also reported that Skyway concessionaire Citra Metro Manila Tollways Corp. (CMMTC) will allow motorists to use the new section without any new charges until April 20. Now, that’s good news!
Here’s a view of the National Power Corporation (NPC) Thermal Plant in Sucat from the skyway and the toll booths.
