DPWH to start building P31.3-B C6 toll way in 2018

Philippines:The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) intends to start building the Southeast Metro Manila Expressway (C6), DPWH chief Mark A. Villar said Thursday.

"Siguro by this year, tatapusin namin 'yung right of way (ROW) issues. So, hopefully, within the next year, we can start the C6," he told GMA News Online on the sidelines of a signing ceremony in Quezon City.

During the Philippine Development Forum on Wednesday, the business community urged the government to complete the C6 from the Skyway-FTi in Taguig, to the Batasan Complex in Quezon City.

Estimated to cost P31.3 billion, the C6 toll road project will run 34.024 kilometers from Taguig City to Quezon City.

The objective C6 is "to decongest EDSA, C5 and other major arteries of Metro Manila and Rizal by providing an alternate route from Para?aque to Quezon City by passing through developing areas of Taguig, Taytay, Antipolo, and San Mateo."

"Kami naman, we're taking into consideration lahat po ng suggestions sa development forum. Marami po kaming project sa Metro Manila para sa decongestion," Villar said.

"Right now, 'yung sa C6, inaayos na namin 'yung ROW issues. So, ongoing pati 'yung detailed engineering design," he added.
