First publishedon www.ITSInternational.com
San Miguel Corporation is seeking a high-level solution to congestion in Metro Manila in the Philippines.
The company - whose flagship product is the San Miguel beer – is proposing an elevated toll road on top of the EDSA (Epifanio de los Santos Avenue) highway, stretching from Macapagal Avenue in Pasay City to either Samson Road or Balintawak in Quezon City.
A report by ABS-CBN News says the toll road would have five lanes northbound and southbound and may also include dedicated lanes for a bus rapid transit system.
San Miguel says it intends to release more details about the project and submit its proposal to the Department of Transport.
