LESS than two weeks after it was closed on May 28, San Miguel Corporation’s SLEX Alabang Southbound Entry reopened on June 7—eight days ahead of schedule.
The toll plaza entry was closed to enable SLEX contractors to undertake bored piling works for the resumed construction of the Skyway Extension Project.
To hasten completion of the bored piling works while maintaining quality, SMC, through its contractor, EEI, used two rigs instead of just one. Workers who returned to work also had more leeway to move on the construction site since Metro Manila was still in quarantine.
“We want to assure the motoring public and government that the Skyway Extension Project will be finished at the soonest possible time. This is to demonstrate our commitment to continue to improve our facilities and services—no matter what the situation or circumstance is,” SMC president and COO Ramon S. Ang said.
