Tollway company NLEX Corporation is set to jumpstart the construction of a new two-kilometer (km) expressway section between the existing Mindanao Avenue toll plaza and Quirino Highway in Novaliches, Quezon City within the second half of the year.

“The construction of this new P2-billion expressway section will be welcome news for NLEX (North Luzon Expressway) commuters who currently face daily traffic gridlock in the congested portions of Mindanao Avenue,” NLEX Corp. president and general manager J. Luigi Bautista said in a statement.

Eventually, the new section will be integrated into the future NLEX expansion to C5/C.P. Garcia near Katipunan Avenue, making the expressway accessible to the west, east, north, and south sides of Metro Manila.

NLEX Corp. said the project will also be welcome news for the transport logistics sector comprised of container cargo trucks, haulers and other commercial vehicles, as it will provide an alternate route to Manila port via NLEX Harbor Link all the way to the new Navotas Interchange along Mel Lopez Blvd, Road 10 (R-10).

The new project is part of the 11.5-km NLEX C5 Link between Mindanao Avenue, Quirino Highway, Regalado Avenue, Congressional Avenue and C.P. Garcia Avenue in Quezon City.

The entire NLEX C5 Link project is expected to benefit 45,000 motorists daily and cut travel time between Mindanao Avenue and Commonwealth Avenue to 10 minutes instead of the usual 45 minutes.

Aside from this project, the tollway company is fast tracking the completion of the first 5-km section of the NLEX Connector to España Boulevard in Sampaloc, Manila along the Philippine National Railways railroad tracks.

The NLEX Connector is expected to reduce travel time from NLEX to South Luzon Expressway from two hours to just 20 minutes and to support business activities in fast-growing regions such as Central Luzon and Calabarzon.
