San Miguel Corporation Breaks Ground On PAREX


Just a few days after it was awarded the proponent status of the Pasig River Expressway (PAREX), San Miguel Corporation has broken ground on the 19.37-kilometer project.

The project, a P95 billion investment by SMC, will be a six-lane elevated expressway that will run along the banks of the river, from Radial Road 10 in Manila to C-6 Road or the South East Metro Manila Expressway (SEMME) in Taguig.

Once operational, PAREX will link the eastern and western cities of Metro Manila and will connect to the Skyway system, realizing the vision of an integrated elevated road network that will link the north, south, east, and west corridors of the capital.

According to Ang, PAREX will be built to accommodate more than just private motor vehicles. Once complete, it will feature a Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system that will benefit commuters all over Metro Manila, who will then have a comfortable, safe, and reliable, alternative to commuting anywhere in the metro.

The expressway will also have dedicated bike lanes to encourage healthy, environment-friendly modes of personal transportation, as well as pedestrian walkways to encourage walking or exercise.

San Miguel Corporation says that PAREX will be completed by 2023.
