Roads in the Philippines

Circumferential Road 5, more commonly known as C-5 Road or C-5, is a network of roads and bridges that altogether forms a major route that transverses in Metro Manila, in the National Capital Region of the Philippines.[2] It is also known officially as Carlos P. Garcia Avenue, and as N11, N128 and N129 in the National Route Numbering System implemented in 2014. Expressway portions, part of the North Luzon Expressway Mindanao Avenue and Karuhatan Link, are numbered E5.

The road serves as a beltway around Metro Manila, spanning some 32.5 kilometres (20.2 mi) as it transverses through the cities of Parañaque, Taguig, Makati, Pasig, Marikina, Quezon City and Valenzuela. It runs parallel to the four other beltways around Metro Manila, and is also known for being the second most important transportation corridor, after Circumferential Road 4, better known as EDSA.[3]

The road is not yet complete to date, because of certain controversies regarding right of way, but portions of the road are already open for public use.[4] The two segments of the road will be connected together with the completion of the CAVITEX - C-5 Link Expressway, through a flyover over the Skyway and SLEX in the Pasay - Taguig boundary, by 2020.

Route description[edit]

The C-5 road lies parallel to Epifanio de los Santos Avenue, passing through the cities of Valenzuela, Quezon City, Marikina, Pasig, Makati, Taguig and Parañaque. The road is divided into segments.

NLEX-Karuhatan connector link[edit]

Also known as the NLEX Segment 9, the NLEX-MacArthur Highway connector is a 2.42 kilometres (1.50 mi) tollway starting from Smart Connect Interchange, a cloverleaf interchange between NLEX-Mindanao Avenue link, NLEX-Karuhatan link and the North Luzon Expressway. The western end of the road is located at MacArthur Highway in Karuhatan, Valenzuela and also a part of C-5 Road.

NLEX-Mindanao Avenue connector link[edit]

Also known as the NLEX Segment 8, the NLEX-Mindanao Avenue connector is a 2.7 kilometres (1.7 mi) tollway starting from the Smart Connect Interchange, a cloverleaf interchange between the NLEX-Mindanao Avenue link, NLEX-Karuhatan link and the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) and ending in a 3-way signalized junction with the Mindanao Avenue. The entire 2.6 kilometres (1.6 mi) tollway is designated as part of a C-5 Road.

Mindanao Avenue[edit]

N128 (Philippines).svg

Mindanao Avenue
Location: Quezon City to Valenzuela
Length: 6.7 km (4.2 mi)

Mindanao Avenue is a 6.7 kilometres (4.2 mi), 10-lane divided carriageway that serves as the main transportation corridor of the Talipapa and Tandang Sora districts of Quezon City. The northern terminus of the road is a dead end 1.1 kilometres (0.68 mi) north of the NLEX-Mindanao Avenue Connector Road and the southern terminus of the road is the Epifanio de los Santos Avenue. The 3.5 kilometres (2.2 mi) portion of the road from the NLEX-Mindanao Avenue Connector Road junction to Congressional Avenue is designated as a portion of the C-5 Road.

Congressional Avenue[edit]

N129 (Philippines).svg

Congressional Avenue
Location: Quezon City
Length: 6.0 km (3.7 mi)

Congressional Avenue is a 6 kilometres (3.7 mi), 6-lane divided carriageway that serves as the main east to west transportation corridor of Muñoz, Culiat and Tandang Sora districts in Quezon City. The western terminus of the road is Epifanio de los Santos Avenue and the eastern terminus of the road is a junction with Luzon Avenue. The 3.9 kilometres (2.4 mi) portion of the road from Mindanao Avenue to Luzon Avenue is designated as a portion of C-5 Road. The whole segment of Congressional Avenue is designated as part of N129.

Luzon Avenue[edit]

Luzon Avenue is a 2.5 kilometres (1.6 mi), 4-lane divided/undivided city road that serves as the main thoroughfare of the Holy Spirit district of Quezon City.

The 850 metres (2,790 ft) portion of the road from Congressional Avenue to Commonwealth Avenue is designated as a portion of C-5 Road. Before crossing ending in Commonwealth Avenue, a 6-lane flyover starts 850 metres (2,790 ft) north of the junction and heads towards Tandang Sora Avenue on the other side of Commonwealth Avenue.

Tandang Sora Avenue[edit]

Tandang Sora Avenue is a 9.6 kilometres (6.0 mi), 2-lane undivided municipal road that serves as the main thoroughfare of the Talipapa, Culiat and Tandang Sora districts of Quezon City. The northern terminus of the road is the Tullahan Road, while the southern terminus is the junction with Magsaysay Avenue inside the University of the Philippines campus. The original planned route of C-5 included the entire road, however, due to the incapacity of the road to carry a large amount of vehicular traffic, only the 1 kilometre (0.62 mi) portion of the road from the Luzon Avenue flyover to Magsaysay Avenue was designated as a portion of C-5 Road. Furthermore, Tandang Sora Avenue becomes a 6-lane divided carriageway shortly after crossing Capitol Hills Drive, 350 meters south of the flyover. After crossing Magsaysay Avenue, Tandang Sora Avenue becomes Katipunan Avenue.

Katipunan Avenue[edit]

N11 (Philippines).svg N129 (Philippines).svg

Katipunan Avenue

The entire road, from the F. Manalo Bridge to South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) is designated as a portion of C-5 Road. The road ends in a junction with South Luzon Expressway.

Location on the West Valley Fault[edit]

Studies by the PHIVOLCS reveal that a large portion of the C-5 road is built on top of the West Valley Fault. A map of the fault line released in May 18, 2015 shows the C-5 road in Taguig beside the fault line.[5] The C-5 road is prone to liquefaction.[6]

History[edit]

The unfinished northern section of the C-5 Kalayaan elevated U-turn slot in March 2009, about two months before its completion.

The proposal for the Metro Manila Arterial Road System was done in the late 1960s.[7] The proposal states of building 10 Radial Roads and 6 Circumferential Roads to support the growing vehicular population of the Metropolitan Manila.

The 5th Circumferential Road began construction in 1986.[2][7] Under the power of Republic Act 8224, which was passed in November 6, 1996, the C-5 road was legally known as President Carlos P. Garcia Avenue, honoring the eighth president of the Republic of the Philippines, Carlos P. Garcia.[8]

Extensions[edit]

On July 23, 2007, President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo announced on her State of the Nation Address that C-5 Road will be extended to the north of Metro Manila, from North Luzon Expressway in Quezon City to Navotas and will be extended in the south from South Luzon Expressway in Taguig-Parañaque boundary to Coastal Road in Las Piñas in the southern part of Ninoy Aquino International Airport.[9]

As of June 2010, the NLEx-Mindanao Avenue Link or NLEx Segment 8.1 which is located in Valenzuela City and Congressional Avenue Extension from Tandang Sora to Luzon Avenue which is located in Quezon City has been opened to all motorists in the North Extension and also the SLEx-Sucat Link or Carlos Garcia Avenue Extension in the South Extension located in Parañaque was also opened.

As of March 2015, the NLEX-Karuhatan Link (Segment 9) has been opened to all motorists. The opening of the Segment 9 from NLEx to MacArthur Highway in Karuhatan, Valenzuela serves as a preparation for the Holy Week season.

At present, the New Commonwealth Avenue Flyover connecting Katipunan and Luzon Avenue is opened to all motorists. Before the opening of the flyover, the Congressional Avenue Extension from Visayas to Luzon Avenue opened in 2010 to decongest heavy traffic in Visayas-Tandang Sora Avenue Intersection.

Roads in the Philippines

The CAVITEX - C-5 Link Expressway is a 7.7-kilometer (4.8 mi) toll expressway that will connect Manila-Cavite Expressway (CAVITEX) with the main route of C-5 in Taguig. The project costs at Php 12,000,000,000 (USD 252671666.72), and is a joint project of the Philippine Reclamation Authority and CAVITEX Infrastructure, Inc. The expressway is built in two phases, with the first phase that will fill the gap between the C-5 main route and the C-5 Extension in Merville by constructing a flyover over the SLEX and Skyway, and the second phase involving construction of the Merville-CAVITEX segment. Construction of the new expressway started in May 8, 2016.[10]

Controversy[edit]

The Senate of the Philippines is investigating the South Extension since it passes many of Sen. Manny Villar's properties such as Camella. The original C5 South Extension was called MCTEP, and was already approved by the Senate. MCTEP was a road that would be made as a toll expressway and resurrected as CAVITEX-C5 Link.[4][11]
