To shorten travel time and ease traffic gridlock in major thoroughfares in Las Piñas City, a new River Drive was opened here on May 5.
Senator Cynthia A. Villar and Las Piñas Rep. Camille Villar led the ribbon-cutting ceremony of the new road which will hasten travel to and from the city’s major roads.
Villar said the new road and the other road developments in Las Piñas will entice investors to come and invest in the city. She said business movements to and from Las Piñas and adjacent areas would also be much easier.
The new 850-meter River Drive traverses Verdant Subdivision to Naga Road via Verdant Acres in Bgy. Pamplona 3 to Vergonville Subdivision, St. Joseph Subdivision and Villa Isabelita in Brgy. Pulang Lupa Dos.
The 640-meter River Drive in Casimiro will also be partially opened via Casimiro Village, Dela Cruz Compound and Batibot in Brgy. Pamplona 3.
The completion of this project will connect Casimiro Village to Zapote Road.
Both road projects are part of the Las Piñas River Drive being implemented by the DPWH under Sec. Mark Villar through the initiative of the senator.
The senator guaranteed she will continue to work closely with the city government and the DPWH to ensure that any traffic problem in Las Piñas, her home city, will be swiftly resolved.
She noted that the earlier completion of the 25-kilometer Las Piñas-Zapote River Drive reduces the volume of vehicles plying
Alabang-Zapote Road, a major thoroughfare in the southern part of Metro Manila.
