Pero ‘di sa EDSA ang daan! 5-minute Cubao to Makati travel doable this year, says Villar
By Prince Golez
Public Works Secretary Mark Villar on Wednesday assured the public that President Rodrigo Duterte’s promise of five-minute travel time from Cubao to Makati is possible this year.
People, however, have to take the Skyway to achieve this, Villar intimated.
“Hindi naman sinabi (ni Duterte) na through EDSA. The President just said Makati to Cubao, 5 minutes,” the secretary said in a media briefing in Malacañang.
“Pag natapos na ang Skyway luluwag din ang EDSA. Ang point ko, wag na tayo mag focus sa maliit na detalye. Ang importante sa term ni President ma-decongest natin ang EDSA at ang 5 minutes from Cubao to Makati posible po, magagawa natin,” he added.
Villar said EDSA will be relieved of 100,000 vehicles with the completion of the Skyway Extension Stage 3 in the coming months.
