Taguig lights up

The city government announced that it has lighted up the 7.2km stretch of C-6:


The local government on Thursday evening launched the second and final phase of the 3.7-kilometer Circumferential Road No.6 (C-6) Light Restoration Project thereby completing the lighting of the whole stretch of the 7.2-kilometer highway.
“We expect the lighting of C-6, from Napindan all the way to Lower Bicutan, to enhance the complete view of Laguna Lake and prevent road accidents,” Taguig Mayor Lani Cayetano said during the launching.
Cayetano said the first phase of the lighting project held last March 25 covered the first 3.5 kilometers of the Road Dike from Barangay Napindan to Bay Breeze.
The length of C-6 covers Barangays San Miguel, Sta. Ana, Calsada, Napindan, Bambang, Hagonoy, Ibayo Tipas, Palingon, Wawa, and New Lower Bicutan in Taguig.
For those who aren't familiar with C-6, it's supposed to connect the SLEX with the NLEX via this route--SLEX -> Taguig--Angono, Rizal--Antipolo, Rizal--San Mateo, Rizal--Rodriguez(Montalban), Rizal--San Jose del Monte, Bulacan-->NLEX. I don't think the whole route is finished, but Taguig to Antipolo should be passable by now. I found a blog with pictures of the highway, as well as a nice discussion over at the Skyscraper city forum.

Back to Taguig though, it appears that the lighting project didn't end at C-6, as the following other areas reportedly got the same benefit: 


Paso Street, Bagumbayan; A. Bonifacio, Upper Bicutan; Western Bicutan, Service Road; Signal Village (Ballecer Street to PC Road); Bayani Road, AFPOVAI; MRT Avenue (left and right sides); Barangay Bagumbayan (Mauling Creek to Adia), and Gen. Santos Avenue (left and right sides), Jollibee to DOST.
Maharlika Road and Mindanao Road; Barangay Pinagsama (Water Fun) Rongo Street, Ballecer; Barangay Wawa (Deva to Kentucky); Palar Tunnel to Water Fun Tunnel; Pedro Cayetano Boulevard and other locations in Western Bicutan, Lower Bicutan, Tuktukan, Napindan and Ibayo Tipas.
Kudos!
