Motorists heading south of the metro will soon be able to get to South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) via Circumferential Road-6 (C6) in a shorter amount of time.

This comes after the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) announced that they are fast-tracking a new access road project that will shorten the route between SLEX and C6. Dubbed Bambang ni Felix Road, the road project is set to be finished soon as it is already 71% complete.

Located in Barangay Sta. Ana in Taguig City, the access road will have two lanes, and will measure 688 meters. Moreover, the Bambang ni Felix road will also serve as a portion of a whole program developed to link C-6 and C-5, and will also connect with Pateros.

“Decongesting traffic in major roadways in the City of Taguig such as Cayetano Boulevard, the two (2) lane 688-meter road will also serve as an additional access from Pateros going to C-6 road which will then be linked to C-5 road,” said Mark Villar, DPWH Secretary.

Construction of the new Php 41 million access road began in July 2019 and the DPWH is looking at opening it to motorists at around March 2020.

With the C6-bound side of Taytay’s Barkadahan Bridge now open to the public, the Bambang ni Felix Access Road will help motorists living east of Metro Manila travel south once it’s officially opened. Here’s to hoping the DPWH will be able to finish it on time for its March 2020 deadline.
