The Ideal Distribution Hub

mrt7picQuezon City is the most highly interconnected city within the metropolis.  It is located near the center  or at the heart of Metro Manila, towards its northeastern portion.  It is also the strategic convergence point for the metropolitan road and transportation networks, making the city an ideal distribution hub. 

It is easily accessible from the major highways, thoroughfares and mass transit systems of the metropolis.

The city is traversed by an 'alphabet soup' of major thoroughfares, namely Circumferential Road 3 or C-3 (Araneta Avenue), C-4 (most of EDSA), C-5 (Katipunan – Luzon – Republic Avenues), R-6 (Aurora Boulevard), R-7 (Quezon – Commonwealth Avenues) and R-8 (Bonifacio Avenue – Quirino Highway), which provide numerous linkages of the city to the rest of Metro Manila.

Among the recent public works projects that have contributed to Quezon City's connectivity, as well as ease in traffic flow in Metro Manila, are the following:

•    The North Luzon Expressway (NLEX)- Mindanao Avenue Link connecting  NLEX, at its Valenzuela City junction, to Mindanao Avenue in Quezon City, which is serving around 30,000 vehicles daily.  Also known as the NLEX Segment 8, the NLEX-Mindanao Avenue connector is a 2.6 kilometer tollway starting from the Smart Connect Interchange, a cloverleaf  interchange between the NLEX-Mindanao Avenue link and the NLEX and ending in a 3-way signalized junction with  Mindanao Avenue. The entire 2.6 kilometer tollway is designated as part of a C-5 Road.

•     Tandang Sora – Commonwealth Avenue flyover, an 18-meter wide bridge from Old Balara to Congressional Avenue and Mindanao Avenue, crossing over     Commonwealth Avenue, thereby connecting Tandang Sora to NLEX

This flyover encourages motorists from NLEX who are going towards the South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) and vice versa to skip traffic at EDSA by taking the convenient route of C-5 and the NLEX-Mindanao Avenue link.

The Ideal Distribution Hub
•    C-3 (G. Araneta Avenue) -Quezon Avenue Interchange Project. This Quezon Avenue and Araneta Avenue underpass is a project which involves the construction of a depressed underpass with a length of 440 lineal meters and 330 lineal meters approaches along Quezon Avenue.  it includes the installation of three submersible pumps with individual capacity of pumping out 277 liters per second, backed up by a power house with generating set and motor circuit control to operate, depending on the intensity of the rain.

    This project is designed to improve traffic flow at the intersection of Quezon Avenue and G. Araneta Avenue, and decongest EDSA.  The project also covers the widening of Mariblo Bridge, improvement of service roads, and provision for street lighting, pavement markings, and traffic signs.  The provision of water cisterns beneath the underpass with enough holding capacity and the construction of reinforced concrete box and pipe culverts will also help manage flooding.
