Shaw Boulevard

Shaw Boulevard (formerly known as Jose Rizal Boulevard or commonly known as Crossing) is a 4-8 lane highway connecting the cities of Mandaluyong and Pasig in the Philippines. The boulevard is named after William James Shaw, the founder of the Wack Wack Golf and Country Club in Mandaluyong City. The road is one of the major thoroughfares of the Ortigas Center in Mandaluyong and Pasig, housing many shopping malls like the Starmall shopping center and the posh Shangri-La Plaza at the EDSA-Shaw intersection and The Marketplace at the Kalentong-Shaw intersection.

Route descriptionEdit

 
Shaw Boulevard, looking east from the crossing flyover

Shaw Boulevard starts as a four-lane road at an intersection past Kalentong Street. It follows a slightly curved route over Mandaluyong before crossing EDSA. The road expands into four lanes per direction, with two lanes going to the flyover, and two lanes passing below. The flyover carries the road over Shaw Boulevard MRT Station and descends near EDSA Shangri-la. The road becomes a dual six-lane carriageway east of EDSA, and soon enters Pasig. Shaw Boulevard eventually is reduced to a four-lane road and extends to C-5 as Pasig Boulevard.
