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:
“The road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom.”
—William Blake (17571827)
“The human body is not a thing or substance, given, but a continuous creation. The human body is an energy system ... which is never a complete structure; never static; is in perpetual inner self-construction and self-destruction; we destroy in order to make it new.”
—Norman O. Brown (b. 1913)
