Laguna Lake Highway

The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has opened a new section of the Laguna Lake Highway, bringing its total serviceable length to 6.7km.

This new section spans just 700m. And like the rest of the already-opened highway, this new section consists of a two-way, two-lane concrete road with two-meter wide planting strip and drainage. The government project also integrated pedestrian-friendly infrastructures such as a 1.5m wide sidewalk and a three-meter wide projected bike lane.

Aside from increasing mobility, this project acts as an armored elevated dike protecting Taguig City against possible flooding. “The Laguna Lake Highway can also be a temporary evacuation area during the occurrence of floods.

The Laguna Lake Highway serves as an alternative for the heavily congested EDSA and C-5 road. When completed, It  will benefit motorists and commuters from the Rizal Province going to Makati City and/or Taguig City, and vice versa.

With the new portion opened, the DPWH projects that the travel time from Taytay, Rizal to Bicutan in Parañaque City will be cut from one hour to just 30 minutes. That’s certainly good news for people from down south.
