Makati to Quezon City / Caloocan City, along congested Epifanio de los Santos Avenue (EDSA), in 10 minutes. That’s by land in a car and not by way of the MRT (which takes more than 30 minutes, by the way). That’s during the day, in peak hours, and not during the wee hours of morning.
That’s the scenario painted for the proposed SKYWAY from Gil Puyat Avenue (formerly Buendia, Makati) to Balintawak (Quezon City). The proposed EDSA Skyway is a 6-lane, 14-kilometer elevated highway on top of EDSA. The proponent is Citra-PNCC (Philippine National Construction Corp).
Here’s the result as of 24 March 2012. The poll question: Want the EDSA Skyway approved? The answers:
Yes, build it ASAP (87%, 80 Votes)
No, find an alternative (8%, 7 Votes)
No, it’s not needed (5%, 5 Votes)
Total Voters: 92
