Hi,

Filipino Wikimapia contributors are known for drawing proposed highways and
stuff like that as if they already exist. For example, the SLEX spur road
going to Los Banos and bypassing the traffic-prone downtown area of Calamba
does not exist and I think is only in the proposed stage. No bidding or
whatever yet.
http://wikimapia.org/#lat=14.1711557&lon=121.1452746&z=16&l=0&m=b

In another instance, they already drew part of the TR4 phase of the SLEX
rehabilitation which is still on paper and the government still has to buy
the right-of-way yet.

So, do not believe everything you see in Wikimapia. :-)

(Surprisingly, they still don't have the NLEX-Mindanao Avenue link road,
which we do have.)
