PGMA to inaugurate fly-over along C-5 extension in Parañaque City

President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo will inaugurate tomorrow, (Thursday, August 20) the 390-meter flyover along President Carlos P. Garcia (C-5) Extension which will cross Sucat all the way to the South Luzon Expressway and cut travel time easily by half.

Since the fly over is toll free, traffic along Sucat Road--- where several subdivisions are located—will be decongested of vehicles bound for SLEX or NLEX, according to Project Engineer Rey Rosario.

Costing P260 million, the road was started September 16 last year and completed two months earlier than schedule last July 15.

The flyover is a major component of the ultimate design of the C-5 Extension Project (NLEX-SLEX-Coastal Road connection), which is funded out of the regular Infrastructure Budget of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH).

The President, will make a 30-minute drive-through of the newly-built road at around 4 p.m.

She will be met by Public Works and Highways Secretary Hermogenes Ebdane, Metro Manila Development Authority Chairman Bayani Fernando, Paranaque Mayor Florencio Bernabe Jr., Rep. Eduardo Zialcita of the 1st District, Paranaque, Las Pina Mayor Vergel Aguilar, Congresswoman Cynthia Villar of the lone district of Las Pinas, and Barangay San Dionisio chairman Mael de Leon.

Also invited to attend are Rep. Roilo Golez, Buhay Party List Rep. Rene Velarde, chairman of the Senate Committee on Public Works Senator Bong Revilla and Chairman of the House Committee on Public Works Roger Mercado.

The President will then motor to the Amvel City Business Park in San Dionisio, Paranaque City and then proceed to the El Shaddai International House of Prayer and College of Wisdom, where she will be met by Brother Mike Velarde, Servant Leader and Founder of El Shaddai. (PND)
