Philippine expressway system

<< < (3/120) > >>

Chris:
Quezon City has some super wide roads.

This is Commonwealth Avenue:

I'm surprised that Cebu City and Davao city does not even have an expressway system like Manila has.
I seen Pinoy Joyride did shots of these areas and these two cities are supposed to be alternate economic hubs of the Philippines besides Manila. 

I understand that San Fernando, Pampanga is the alternate economic hub and it kind of gets played as the Sacramento metro area of the Philippines located and overshadowed  by Manila.

Bulacan from what I understand gets played as the commuter province for Metro Manila. Note my both of my parents were born in the Philippines they explained their time in the Philippines in that form.

Same as American E-ZPass, or just same name?

E-Pass...I don't know too much about it.  Quickly googling: http://www.skyway.com.ph/projects/stage-2/15-e-pass.html

Pretty similar concept (and I did see tons of "GET RFID TAG FOR QUICKER TRAVEL" (paraphrasing) type of signs on the expressways)...yet it blows my mind that a turnpike system being constructed in the last 10 years and counting seems to entirely lack in high-speed electronic tolling lanes!

Then again, given the traffic levels that have existed in that country for decades, maybe there isn't a need for high speed electronic tolling yet, LOL.

You are correct!!! 

I'm so blown away by the pillar and median advertising here, stuff which would never fly in the US (not the least of which would be due to, uh, distraction potential).  I think that also works on the assumption of severe traffic jams giving people the chance to look at such ads...

I misread E-Pass as E-ZPass. Ignore.
