Villar welcomes Inauguration of Coastal Service Road in Las Pinas

Sen. Cynthia Villar led today the inauguration of the completed construction of the C5 Road South Extension project spanning the Las Pinas City and Paranaque City segment.

Villar, who hails from Las Pinas, expressed confidence the project would help ease traffic for commuters plying the Coastal Road-South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) route.

The road construction project, which started in 2006, has been delayed due to Right of Way problems faced by the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) with private residents and business establishments that were affected by the expansion.

The 15-kilometer project covers the construction of the C5 service road, including 10 bridges and a flyover. It spans the cities of Las Pinas, Pasay and Paranaque, and affected the streets in MIAA, Kenko, Radar Area, RSG, Areas 5, 6 and 7, Kaingin Road, SM Warehouse AMVEL, SM Sucat and properties in the Las Pinas area.

The C5 Road is a network of roads and bridges that serves as a beltway around the city of Manila. It serves as an alternate route for travelers headed to the southern side of the National Capital Region.

"This project has always been envisioned to be a part of government's solution to the terrible traffic woes of motorists and commuters. With the completion of the project in the Las Pinas - Paranaque area, travel from the Coastal Road to SLEX and vice versa passing through the cities will be faster," Villar said.

She added: "As a resident who uses this route on a regular basis, I am happy that the government has pushed through with this project despite the difficulties that it faced during the initial phase of the undertaking."
