Diosdado Macapagal Boulevard

Diosdado Macapagal Boulevard is a "modern" eight-lane road parallel to Roxas Boulevard running from CCP Complex, Pasay City to Marina Subdivision, ParaƱaque City, both in Metro Manila. It was named after former President Diosdado Macapagal. It is located in the reclamation areas. This road has 3 major bridges, crossing the 'channels', of which the largest is the Libertad Channel, where the Libertad Water Pumping Station is situated. Thanks to intersection reconfiguring around EDSA to relieve traffic, Macapagal Boulevard is now often used to access the SM Mall of Asia to the north and Cavite to the south. It is also the main major road in Reclamation Area.

Famous quotes containing the word boulevard:

    Arrive in the afternoon, the late light slanting
    In diluted gold bars across the boulevard brag
    Of proud, seamed faces with mercy and murder hinting
    here, there, interrupting, all deep and debonair,
    The pink paint on the innocence of fear;
    Walk in a gingerly manner up the hall.
    Gwendolyn Brooks (b. 1917)
