The C-6 to SLEX link is now 71% complete and SMC waives toll fees for vehicles delivering aid to Taal Volcano evacuees.

The new C6 to SLEX Connecting road

Good news folks! Currently, the new access road linking up C6 to SLEX is now 71% complete. Once completed, motorists who’re traveling south of Metro Manila will reach the South Luzon Expressway quicker.

Called the “Bambang ni Felix Road”, this new road project is currently being fast-tracked by the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) because not only will it serve to reduce the traffic on several thoroughfares in the City of Taguig but also, it will serve to significantly reduce travel times.

Several portions of the said road are already completed so without a doubt, it's on schedule

“Decongesting traffic in major roadways in the City of Taguig such as Cayetano Boulevard, the two-lane 688-meter road will also serve as additional access from Pateros going to C-6 road which will then be linked to C-5 road,” Mark Villar, the DPWH secretary said in a statement.

The construction of this new C6 to SLEX link will open on March 2020 and costs a total of around Php 41 million.
