The 7.42 km Sariaya Bypass Road will decongest traffic volume along Daang Maharlika by 40%. The project is now open to the public. It will not only provide faster and safer travel for motorists but also allow efficient transport of goods to and from the markets in Southern Luzon.
The newly inaugurated Sariaya Bypass Road is a 7.42km four-lane concrete road with four two-lane concrete bridges. The New bypass road in Quezon cuts travel time between Sariaya and Lucena by 30 minutes. The road provides access from the Manila-South Daang Maharlika all the way to the Quezon Eco-Tourism Road and vice versa.
In a video presentation, the DPWH said the Sariaya Bypass Road will provide daily transport efficiency around 15,000 motorists and commuters daily going to different provinces in the Southern Tagalong region. The project began back in 2014 and was completed earlier this year.
The government expects the project to help boost economic and social development by providing transport efficiency, road safety, and expansion of existing business opportunities in the whole of Quezon province.
On Oct. 21, President Duterte led the opening and inauguration of the road project which, he said, will play vital role in the full reopening of the Philippine economy amid the pandemic.
Duterte expressed confidence that the Sariaya Bypass Road would spur the growth of industries and business opportunities in the Quezon province.
