Department of Public Works and Highways Secretary Mark Villar said the highway will be used as an alternate route to Edsa via Bonifacio Drive and Roxas Boulevard.
“Filipinos will soon have access to an improved and widened Radial Road 10 or R-10 which they may opt to use as alternate route to EDSA via Bonifacio Drive and Roxas Boulevard in travelling from north to south and vice versa,” Villar said.
“We have completed the clearing of illegal structures along the road right-of-way. We will now resume construction activities for the full completion of the upgrading and widening of the remaining section particularly at Pacheco, Tondo area,” he added.
The 9.7-kilometer R-10 stretches from Delpan Bridge in Tondo, Manila to the mouth of the Malabon River at Bangkulasi Bridge on C-4 Road in Navotas City. It may be used as an alternate route to EDSA and C5 for motorists travelling from Quezon City to Manila and Pasay.

“The Bangkulasi Bridge at the end of C-4 in Navotas City has also been recently opened following the relocation of informal settler families previously occupying the foot of the bridge,” Villar said.
“The Duterte administration is committed to speeding up implementation of infrastructure projects. We are commited to opening R10 January 2017,” Villar said.
