Toll road concessionaire NLEX Corp is investing P150 million to repair the bridges and pavement along certain areas of the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX).

Restoration and enhancement works are underway for the slope protection of Pinulot, Loakan, and Cui river bridges in Dinalupihan, Bataan. These projects will help prevent structures from scouring and erosion, especially during the rainy season, thus improving the safety of motorists and locals, NLEX Corp. said in a statement.

 

Meanwhile, the ongoing pavement repair program on the 38 lane kilometres of SCTEX is set to be completed by the second quarter of 2019.

The pavement repairs, which involve light patching works and asphalt overlays, cover both directions of the SCTEX from Tarlac to Tipo, including the Subic Freeport Expressway (SFEX).

The same program is also being conducted on the 40 lane kilometers of North Luzon Expressway from Balintawak to Sta. Ines.

“These are part of our efforts to maintain and make our roads safe for all weather conditions, giving the public comfortable travel and helping facilitate efficient mobility of goods and services,” NLEX Corp. president and general manager Luigi Bautista said.

Last year, four camera-equipped emergency call boxes were installed in Dinalupihan (Subic-bound), Porac (Subic-bound), Dolores (Tarlac-bound), and San Miguel (Tarlac-bound) to enhance communication between motorists and the SCTEX personnel responsible for traffic monitoring and control.

Variable electronic message signs providing useful and updated traffic information were also put up in Floridablanca (Subic-bound), Concepcion (Subic-bound), Porac (Tarlac-bound), and Bamban (Tarlac-bound) interchanges.

Reflective delineator posts and plates were mounted on the expressway to help motorists navigate the road safely during nighttime.

Since the NLEX-SCTEX integration in 2016, the company has been modernizing SCTEX, bringing to it all features of NLEX, from smooth pavements to electronic toll collection and up-to-date traffic systems as well as a friendly and courteous brand of service.
