Traffic in major thoroughfares in Las Piñas and in neighboring towns and cities is expected to ease in time for the holiday season as the second phase of the Las Piñas River Drive and fourth phase of the Zapote River Drive road projects were opened to motorists.
Senator Cynthia Villar and daughter Camille led the inauguration of the partially completed Phase 2 of the Las Piñas River Drive, a 600-meter road connecting the CAA Bridge to Manuela 4B.
It will pass through the Villanueva, Dela Cruz and Batibot compounds, through the Daimar Subdivision and ends at Manuela 4B. Once completed, the entire 1.2-kilometer Phase 2 of the road project will cover the foot of the CAA Bridge up to the Carmella 3D Bridge.
The first phase of the undertaking spanned 1.7 kilometers, covered the Navas Road and passed through the Doña Julita Subdivision to the C-5 Extension Road. The Las Piñas River Drive project seeks to provide homeowners and travelers an alternate route that connects the CAA Bridge to the C-5 Extension Road.
The Villars also opened the 1.2-kilometer Phase 4 of the Zapote River Drive, which cuts through the Manuela Subdivision, Samanta Village, Christianville Subdivision in Talon 5, and across Soldiers Hills 2 and Almanza 1 subdivisions. Phase 3 of the road project was inaugurated last year. It covered a full kilometer of flood control structures and improvements from Pegasus St., Moonwalk, Talon 5 to M. Alvarez Ave. Phase 1 of the road project starts at Brgy. Zapote all the way to Margie Moran Street to Pegasus Street in Moonwalk Village. The Zapote River Drive road project is expected to cut travel time to and from Las Piñas City by 30 percent, and at the same time address the flooding problem.

Senator Villar expressed hope that with the opening of the alternate routes, motorists will get faster to their destinations, especially with the beginning of the holiday season.
“We would like to express our gratitude to the DPWH for helping the city government in addressing the worsening traffic situation in Las Piñas. The residents of Las Piñas will now have a shorter and more convenient travel time to their destinations,” the veteran lawmaker said.

The Villars were joined by city government officials and homeowners of private properties traversed by the two road projects.
They were also accompanied by the Zapote Elementary School and Almanza Elementary School drum and lyre bands.
