MANILA, Philippines — San Miguel Corp. is on track to complete the northbound section of the Skyway Extension project by December, SMC president and chief operating officer Ramon Ang announced yesterday.

Ang said the structure of the northbound section is now 70 percent done and set for completion by the end of the year.

“With this, motorists from the south can easily access Makati, Manila, San Juan, Quezon City and the North Luzon Expressway,” Ang said.

“While the weather is also a factor, especially when doing finishing work, we don’t see any problems meeting our December deadline for the northbound section,” he added.

Ang said the southbound section of the project would be finished by July next year.

Originally set for full completion by end of the year, the Skyway Extension project has been delayed due to COVID-19 pandemic.

“Work had to stop when the lockdown was implemented. We resumed work in mid-June and because of health protocols, we had to limit the number of workers at the site. Apart from limitations on the workforce, we also had to contend with delays in the shipment of materials due to restrictions brought by the pandemic,” Ang said.

The P10-billion Skyway Extension project will extend the Skyway from Susana Heights along the South Luzon Expressway to Sucat and back and will provide direct access to the elevated section of the Skyway.
