This page shows the route relations of national roads in the Philippines. Relations are named by route number ("Route X/XX/XXX") or road name ("Route X/XX/XXX"), except for relations of tertiary national roads, which only road names, yet, no tertiary road relation has been mapped yet.


The national road route relation tagging scheme is based on Ian Lopez's tagging, but included tertiary national roads, and naming can be either the road number (i.e. "Route X/XX/XXX"), road name (per the Department of Public Works and Highways, or both.

relation 4677246 Zapote - Alabang Road Alabang-Zapote Road, Real Street (Calle Real), North Bridgeway North Bridgeway is not an original part of Alabang-Zapote Road, or Route 411. The original part is a curved alignment between Filinvest Avenue and North Bridgeway, that is removed after the completion of Skyway Stage 2 in 2012, whose entrance/exit ramp required the realignment of Alabang-Zapote Road to use the ramp service roads which intersect North Bridgeway instead.
