The North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) Harbor Link Segment 10, an elevated expressway linking MacArthur Highway in Valenzuela City and C3 Road in Caloocan City, is projected to be operational by end of the first quarter of 2018.

“We expect to finish the project by early next year, anticipating complete delivery of the remaining right-of-way by end of this month,” NLEX Corporation senior vice president for Tollways Development and Engineering Raul Ignacio announced on November 9.

Featured as one of the big-ticket projects in the administration’s “Build Build Build” infrastructure program, the P10.5-billion Harbor Link Segment 10 project is envisioned to alleviate Metro Manila’s traffic congestion and drive commerce between the Harbor area and Central and North Luzon. It is seen to advance transport logistics and facilitate efficient delivery of goods.

At present, NLEX Corp. has accelerated construction on the recently turned over right-of-way (ROW) areas in Valenzuela and Caloocan.

Through the efforts of the Department of Public Works and Highways ROW task force, the local governments of Caloocan and Valenzuela, Philippine National Railways (PNR) management, ROWs in Poblacion Public Market in Caloocan City and the Tullahan River-San Francisco area in Valenzuela City were cleared.

“We are fast tracking the turnover of the remaining right-of-way needed to complete Segment 10,” Public Works Secretary Mark Villar said.

Harbor Link Segment 10 traverses Karuhatan in Valenzuela City, Governor Pascual Avenue in Malabon City, and C3 road in Caloocan City.

Meanwhile, ROW acquisition and initial construction activities are on-going for the 2.6-kilometer Radial Road 10 section of the NLEX Harbor Link Segment 10 from C3 Road in Caloocan City to R10 in Navotas City.

The Harbor Link’s R10 section is seen to advance transport logistics and facilitate efficient delivery of goods by providing a direct and quick access between NLEX and Manila Port.
