The R-10 is expected to be an alternate route located at the old Smokey Mountain area that will help ease traffic in major highways like EDSA and C5.

“Filipinos will soon have access to an improved and widened Radial Road 10 or R-10 which they may opt to use as an alternate route to EDSA via Bonifacio Drive and Roxas Boulevard in traveling from north to south and vice versa,” said DPWH Secretary Mark Villa.

He also added that they have completed clearing out the illegal structures along the road and will resume the widening of the remaining section “particularly at Pacheco, Tondo area.”

The entirety of R-10 stretches to 9.7 kilometers from Delpan Bridge, Tondo, Manila, to Malabon River at Bangkulasi Bridge, C-4 Road in Navotas City. It can be used as an alternate route from Quezon City to Manila and Pasay.

This rehabilitation, apart from decongesting traffic flow in EDSA and C-5, is also said to enhance economic efficiency and competitiveness of the export industry as it is able to provide freight movement that’s faster and more reliable.

Finally, the DPWH Chief said that they are “committed to opening R-10 January 2017.”

    Wag nyong paaalisin ang iskwater sa delpan, pasay at iba pang lugar. Mawawalan ng boto ang mga politicians next year.

    Tama lang yan. Ang laki ng magiging kaluwagan sa trapiko pag nabuksan yan. Biruin mo. Yung mga galing sa south from Cavite via Roxas Boulevard. Kung pupunta ng North via North Expressway, mas mabilis na ang byahe dahil connecting to EDSA na agad at hindi kung saan-saan pa iikot yung mga sasakyan.

    Actually malapit lang ako dyan at ngayon pa lang eh heavy traffic na dyan minsan kasi dyan dumadaan ang mga trucks galing sa pier. I mean yes maganda nga ang project na yan pero sana pag-aralan pa ng mabuti kasi malaki talaga ang potential nyang Road 10. #peace
