Haven’t tried Skyway Stage 3? We’ve got you covered. Ride along as we take a joyride on the new elevated road. As an added treat, we even time it to see if it lives up to the promise of 18-mins of travel time from north to south and vice versa.

For this video, we enter the Skyway from NAIAX, driving over the existing Skyway alignment and entering the new Stage 3. We take Stage 3 all the way north as it lands us directly into NLEX.

We also share vital info about the project such as its length, key exit points, and other trivia about the project.

In a second video, we test the travel time using a Volkswagen Lamando and drive at the recommended 60 km/h speed limit. No time lapse or fast-forwarding. We show you the entire trip in real time.

While the Skyway is toll free for the time being, having an AutoSweep or Easytrip RFID is still required on your car. After all, you’ll be entering from an existing toll road like the Skyway, NAIAX, or NLEX. In addition, those headed northbound will be required to pass through one of the Skyway Stage 3’s tollboths. While no amount will be deducted, it will still check your car for a sticker before raising the barrier.

Watch the video above and get your bearings on the new expressway before you even physically drive on it. Read our story here for more tips on driving on Skyway Stage 3.
