The Daang Hari (lit. 'King's Road') (also known as the Las Piñas–Muntinlupa–Cavite Road or LAMUCAR), is a major arterial thoroughfare that links southern Metro Manila with the province of Cavite in the Philippines. It begins as a north–south road from Commerce Avenue just south of Alabang–Zapote Road running for 5.9 kilometers (3.7 miles) through the borders of Las Piñas and Muntinlupa. It then runs east–west for 9.2 kilometers (5.7 miles) from the intersection with Daang Reyna Road, winding through the cities of Bacoor and Imus in Cavite where it ends at Aguinaldo Highway near Dasmariñas.
The road was completed in 2005 by the Department of Public Works and Highways, 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 in Cavite.
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.
Daang Hari is named in honor to Vista Land founder, former Senator Manuel Villar, Jr.
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.
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 Boulevard and Molino-Paliparan Road where SM Center Molino is located. A few hundred meters west of Molino Boulevard, 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.
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.
A 4-kilometer (2.5 mi) connector road was built to link Daang Hari Road to South Luzon Expressway (SLEx) in Muntinlupa near San Pedro, Laguna. The toll road, the first Public Private Partnership (PPP) project under the administration of President Benigno Aquino III with Ayala Corporation, runs from the roundabout with Daang Reyna and Daang Hari east towards the Susana Heights interchange of SLEx traversing the New Bilibid Prison (NBP) Reservation in Muntinlupa.
The toll road, now known as the Muntinlupa–Cavite Expressway, was opened to traffic on July 24, 2015.
The entire length of Daang Hari Road has official kilometer count since it not under the maintenance of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH).
Daang Reyna, or Vista Avenue, is a 2-kilometer (1.2 mi) spur of Daang Hari, starting from the Daang Hari–MCX Interchange near Evia Lifestyle Center. It is named in honor to Manny Villar's wife, Senator Cynthia Villar. It spur off Daang Hari at the roundabout near Muntinlupa–Cavite Expressway and continues south towards another roundabout with Victoria Avenue, which leads to Muntinlupa and ends in Magsaysay Road in San Pedro, Laguna. The road lies near the Muntinlupa–Las Piñas boundary and passes near gated communities like Portofino South and Amore at Portofino, owned by Vista Land.
The entire route is located in Las Piñas.
