Tollway company NLEX Corporation has adjusted toll fees in North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) following the provisional approval of the expressway’s closed system toll rates of P0.25 per kilometer by the Toll Regulatory Board (TRB).

The additional rate was approved by TRB on October 18 after the tollway company completed the construction of 64 new lane-kilometers along the Bulacan and Pampanga portions of NLEX, amounting to about P2.5 billion.

Under the provisionally approved new toll fee matrix, Class 1 vehicles (ordinary cars) travelling the entire NLEX between EDSA Balintawak or Mindanao Avenue, Quezon City, to Sta. Ines, Mabalacat City, Pampanga will pay an additional P18. Class 2 vehicles (buses and small trucks) on the same route will pay an additional P46 and Class 3 vehicles (large trucks/trailers) an additional P56.

As the provisionally adjusted add-on toll rates exclude the existing NLEX Open System, all vehicles travelling within the Quezon City, Valenzuela City, Meycauayan and Marilao sections will continue to be charged the existing toll fees. Likewise, the toll fees for the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway system (SCTEX) remain unchanged regardless of vehicle class.

NLEX Corp. in a statement said motorists have been enjoying safer travel and less congestion brought about by the new infrastructure projects since last year. The construction of a new carriageway and two new bridges between Barangays Dau and Sta. Ines in Mabalacat City was completed in December 2016. Meanwhile, the new lanes between Bgy. Sta. Rita, Guiguinto and San Fernando City sections were opened to motorists in April 2017. The 5-km Candaba Viaduct has also been expanded from the 2×2 lanes to 2×3 lanes configuration, further improving travel.
