A new segment of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Expressway (NAIAX) was partially opened today, December 21, 2016. The new “Christmas lane” is said to cut travel time by 40%.
In a report by Rappler, the Christmas lane will allow motorists from Diosdado Macapagal Boulevard, Pasay City to use 1 of the 4 lanes on the elevated highway to reach NAIA Terminal 3 and Skyway.
For the first 2 years of its operation, toll fees will be rated at P45 (Class 1), P90 (Class 2), and P134 (Class 3). Adjustments to toll fees will be implemented every 2 years according to the project’s concession agreement.
As a review, the NAIAX is a Public-Private Partnership (PPP) program that features a 12.65 km elevated highway. When completed, the project will provide better access to NAIA Terminals 1,2, and 3 from PAGCOR’s Entertainment City, Diosdado Macapagal Boulevard, Villamor Airbase, Skyway, and South Luzon Expressway (SLEX). NAIAX is expected to be fully operational by the first quarter of 2017.
These huge vehicles will be locally manufactured and assembled.
Three new water facilities as part of its Operation Better World program.
This proposal will also include the expansion of Passenger Terminal Buildings.
