Daang Hari (literally the "Road [of the] King"), also known as the Las Piñas–Muntinlupa–Laguna–Cavite Link Road (LPMLC Link Road),[1] is a collector road that links southern Metro Manila to the province of Cavite in the Philippines. It begins as a north–south road from Commerce Avenue, just south of the Alabang–Zapote Road running for 5.9 kilometers (3.7 mi) on the boundary of Las Piñas and Muntinlupa. It then runs east–west for about 9.2 kilometers (5.7 mi) from its junction with Daang Reyna, winding through the cities of Bacoor, Imus, Dasmariñas, and General Trias.

Route description

Most of sections of Daang Hari Road is a four-lane median divided highway.

A spur road, named Daang Reyna, leads to some gated communities in Muntinlupa and San Pedro, Laguna via Magsaysay Road. The spur is mostly a two-lane divided road.

Las Piñas to Muntinlupa

Daang Hari's northern terminus is at the junction with Commerce Avenue in Madrigal Business Park near Alabang Town Center where it is a continuation of the short Investment Drive from Alabang–Zapote Road. The road forms the border between Barangay Ayala Alabang and Poblacion of Muntinlupa to the east and Barangay Almanza Dos of Las Piñas to the west. The road passes the following villages from north to south: T.S. Cruz Subdivision, Ayala Alabang, Ayala Southvale, Versailles, Katarungan Village, and Portofino Heights before coming to a roundabout with Daang Reyna and Muntinlupa–Cavite Expressway (MCX) near Evia Lifestyle Center.

Muntinlupa to Imus

From the Daang Reyna junction, the road curves sharply to the west and traverses the Molino villages of Bacoor including, from east to west, Verdana Homes, Malipay and Springville South. It intersects with Molino-Paliparan Road where SM Center Molino is located. A few hundred meters west of Molino Paliparan Road, Daang Hari enters Imus passing through Barangay Pasong Buaya before terminating at the intersection with Aguinaldo Highway in Anabu near the boundary with Salitran, Dasmariñas where The District mall is located. A flyover is under construction to divert through traffic on the existing intersection with Aguinaldo Highway. As of 2019, the flyover was now opened to the public.[2]

Imus to General Trias

Daang Hari includes an extension to General Trias named Open Canal Road, also named Daang Hari Extension. The original road existed as an access road for irrigation canals maintained by the National Irrigation Authority (NIA). The road passes Lancaster New City Cavite and other nearby subdivisions and some paddy fields before ending at Arnaldo Highway in barangay Pasong Camachile. Open Canal Road runs as a minor local road up to Governor Ferrer Drive. The road is currently under road widening.

History

The road was inaugurated on December 13, 2003 as the Las Piñas–Muntinlupa–Laguna–Cavite (LPMLC) Link Road that ran from Ayala Alabang to Molino Road. It was built as part of then-Senator Manny Villar's initiative to decongest traffic in southern Metro Manila.[1]

Works by the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) on the road was completed in 2005 and is composed of two roads, the Las Piñas–Muntinlupa–San Pedro Road (which include the present Daang Reyna) within Metro Manila, and the original Daang Hari through Bacoor and Imus.[3]
