San Miguel Corporation (SMC) has stated that it plans to send in a proposal to build an elevated tollway on EDSA.
According to a report by CNN, SMC Chairman and Chief Operating Officer Ramon Ang stated that the elevated tollway could be built in 24 to 30 months. It will begin in Macapagal Avenue in Pasay City and end at either Samson Road in Caloocan or EDSA-Balintawak. He added that the tollway could be similar to that in Japan, stating that it could be built with steel but it would be more expensive. He had also asked the media to ” imagine adding 10 lanes on EDSA without traffic?”
For toll rates, Ramon Ang stated that it could be between PHP 150 to 200. The proposal is set to be submitted to the Department of Transportation in the coming weeks.
