The stretch of Don Hilario Cruz Avenue between Megawide and the Manila East Road is paved and generally wider than Highway 2000. While there are residential villages along this stretch as well as a significant traffic generator in Club Manila East, which is a resort, traffic is usually light. There are actually few establishments and informal settlements along the road, which retains its exclusive subdivision feel.

The only setback when traveling using this alternate route to Highway 2000 is that stretch beside Megawide. It very dusty during the dry season and muddy during the wet season. The road can be quite rough and will damage cars over time. You definitely cannot speed up along this section even if you are on an SUV and are familiar with the bumps along the road. Hopefully, the Taytay could address this issue and the Rizal Provincial government can also facilitate the paving of this section, which is used by many Rizalenos heading to work or school in Metro Manila.
