1-B flyover to decongest roads to NAIA and domestic airport terminals

May 29, 2009 1:46 pm 

MANILA, May 29 — The traffic jams on roads to the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) and the domestic airport terminals will be a thing of the past when President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo inaugurates tomorrow morning (Saturday, May 30) the 1.5- to 2-kilometer viaduct and other road systems in Pasay City.

In inaugurating the 1-B flyover, the President will drive through and hold a brief program in the site before entering the NAIA Terminal 2 to board her Philippine Airlines flight to Korea and Russia at 11 a.m. for official trips to these two countries.

The NAIA Expressway Flyover connects the existing Metro Manila Skyway and South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) with the NAIA Passenger Terminals via elevated roadway or viaducts.

The President will arrive at the NAIA Flyover Ramp 4 (Phase 1 Package 2 section) via Skyway.

She will be received by Public Works and Highways Secretary Hermogenes Ebdane, Metro Manila Development Authority Chairman Bayani Fernando, Transportation and Communications Secretary Leandro Mendoza, NAIA General Manager Alfonso Cusi and Mayors Wenceslao Trinidad of Pasay City and Sigfrido Tinga of Taguig City.

The flyover is expected to cut down travel time to the NAIA from Alabang, Makati and towns/cities north or south of Metro Manila and will greatly benefit frequent travelers, overseas Filipino workers, businessmen and even local and foreign tourists using both international and domestic airports.
