About Strong Republic Nautical Highway Philippines
The Strong Republic Nautical Highway (SRNH) in the Philippines is an
integrated set of highway segments and vehicular ferry routes which,
considered in combination with other road and ferry routes not formally
part of the SRNH, forms the backbone of a nationwide vehicle-accessible
transport system. This system reduces the usual travel time by 17 hours
to the different key cities, enhances the accessibility of the prime
tourist destinations, and minizes the handling expenses of goods, all
over the country.
A very special travel adventure in the Philippines is the western route
of the SRNH from Quezon City to Zamboanga in southern Mindanao. You can
do the 1280 km in less than 48 hours and without leaving your seat.
