The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) is pushing to complete by yearend the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) Harbor Link Segment 10 as acquisition of the right-of-way (ROW) for the project is almost complete.

“I want to finish by this year… We are committed to deliver the remaining right-of-way so we can finish this important infrastructure as soon as possible,” DPWH Secretary Mark Villar said at a site inspection on August 16.

NLEX Corp, the builder and concessionaire of the project, said DPWH is fast-tracking the turnover of the remaining ROW needed to complete by the end of 2018 the section between Karuhatan, Valenzuela City and C3 Road, Caloocan City. The ROW accomplishments now stand at 95%. The available ROW in Valenzuela City is currently 96%, and in Caloocan City, 86%.

NLEX Harbor Link Segment 10 is an 8.25-kilometer elevated expressway traversing the NLEX from Karuhatan, Valenzuela City, passing through Malabon City and Caloocan City, and extending to Radial Road 10 (R-10), Navotas City.

The elevated expressway will provide direct access between the port area and the northern provinces of Luzon via NLEX, easing traffic congestion and facilitating efficient delivery of goods to and from the port area and Central and Northern Luzon.

Once the segment is opened, travel time from Manila ports to NLEX will take just 10 minutes, allowing cargo trucks to improve their turnaround time for delivering goods.

“Our team has been working double-time to complete the NLEX Harbor Link Segment 10 as scheduled. We are confident that our government partners will help us realize soon our vision of providing fast and safe travel experience to the public through this project,” NLEX Corp. senior vice president Raul Ignacio noted.

Construction work on the C-3 R-10 section of the NLEX Harbor Link Segment 10 continues, with foundations of the elevated road now in place at the site of the future NLEX Caloocan Interchange on C-3 Road.
