Alternative to Highway 2000, Taytay, Rizal – Part 1
An alternate route to the poorly maintained Highway 2000 in Taytay, Rizal that leads to Barkadahan Bridge and Circumferential Road 6 (C-6) is via Don Hilario Cruz Avenue, along which is the new Taytay Municipal Hall, the Land Transportation Office in Taytay, and Club Manila East. While most of Don Hilario Cruz is paved, there is a significant section that remains unpaved. It is very dusty during the dry season and muddy during the wet season.
The road section is unpaved but appears to be graded (probably by the tires of all the vehicles using it everyday). The wall on the right is Megawide’s. Megawide is a major contractor.
Motorcycles are the fastest along these types of roads. Other vehicles including trucks need to slow down so their suspensions will not be damaged by the rough road.
I have wondered whether Megawide has considered contributing to paving the road considering their stature in the construction industry. This can be their CSR project and one where a lot of people will be very appreciative with the results.
Intersection with Velasquez Street, which connects to the Manggahan East Service Road to the north and the Manila East Road to the south.
