7-kilometer diversion road to ease traffic in Taytay and Ortigas

A new diversion road connecting Antipolo City and Angono in Rizal is set to open in June. This new 6.97-kilometer road is expected to cut travel time between the two towns, bypassing the populous Taytay and may even decongest Ortigas Extension in Cainta.

The four-lane diversion road is divided into three packages: with A and B now at 49.5% and 45% completion, respectively. Meanwhile, Package C now has an approved allocation of PhP 150 million and will be constructed soon.

“Going in and out of Rizal will soon be traffic jam-free with the completion of this project. Packages A and B of the four-lane bypass road now have a significant accomplishment, with a 49.5% and 45.08% completion rate, respectively,” said DPWH Secretary Mark Villar.

Total cost for the Package A and B is PhP 122 million, which came from the 2018 DPWH Regular Infrastructure Program and is set to be completed by June of this year.
