MANILA - Skyway Stage 3 that links the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) and the South Luzon Expressway fully opened to motorists early Friday.

Built to decongest major Metro Manila roads, particularly the capital region's main thoroughfare EDSA, the Skyway 3 was built by San Miguel Corp.'s subsidiary, Citra Central Expressway Corporation.

According to the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) website, the Skyway's construction cost was around P44.86 billion.

The Skyway 3 project began in Jan. 2014, through a Public-Private Partnership (PPP) under the administration of then-President Benigno Aquino III.
