Shaw Boulevard, formerly known as Jose Rizal Boulevard, is a 6-10 lane highway connecting the cities of Mandaluyong and Pasig in the Philippines. The Boulevard is named after William J. Shaw, the founder of the Wack Wack Golf and Country Club in Mandaluyong. The road is one of the major thoroughfares of the Ortigas Center in Mandaluyong and Pasig, housing many shopping malls like the Starmall on EDSA-Shaw, The Marketplace and the posh Shangri-La Plaza.[1][2]

It is served by the Shaw Boulevard Station of the MRT-3 along EDSA.

Route description[edit]

Shaw Boulevard starts at an intersection past Kalentong Street. It follows a slightly curved route over Mandaluyong before crossing EDSA. A flyover carries the road over Shaw MRT station and descends near EDSA Shangri-la. The road becomes a dual carriageway east of EDSA, and soon enters Pasig. Shaw Boulevard extends to C-5 as Pasig Boulevard.
