Metro Manila Arterial Road System

The Metro Manila Arterial Road System (Filipino: Sistema ng mga Daang Arteryal ng Kalakhang Maynila) is the highway numbering system that is currently being implemented in Metro Manila in the Philippines, organizing the major thoroughfares of the Metropolis. The system was adopted during the term of President Ferdinand Marcos in 1965 and is still imposed by the Department of Public Works and Highways. The Metro Manila Arterial Road System numbering is very much different to other road numbering system in other countries. The roads that are part of the Metro Manila Arterial Road System are the National Roads, the Circumferential Roads, and the Radial Roads, as well as the other major roads connecting the cities of Manila, Quezon, North and South Caloocan, Valenzuela, Malabon, Navotas, Pasay, Parañaque, Las Piñas, Taguig, Marikina, Pasig, Mandaluyong, Makati, Pateros and San Juan as well as the surrounding provinces.

Famous quotes containing the words road and/or system:

    My desk, most loyal friend
    thank you. You’ve been with me on
    every road I’ve taken.
    My scar and my protection.
    Marina Tsvetaeva (1892–1941)

    Such is the remorseless progression of human society, shedding lives and souls as it goes on its way. It is an ocean into which men sink who have been cast out by the law and consigned, with help most cruelly withheld, to moral death. The sea is the pitiless social darkness into which the penal system casts those it has condemned, an unfathomable waste of misery. The human soul, lost in those depths, may become a corpse. Who shall revive it?
    Victor Hugo (1802–1885)
