News Special

The NLEX Corporation has completed the pavement repair of more than 140,000 square meter section of the expressway as part of their yearly obligation to maintain the good road condition and provide better service to customers, the company said in a statement, Sunday.

“Each year, we strive to fulfill our obligation to provide our customers with the best service. With the completion of the pavement repair program, we are optimistic that our motorists will have a safer and smoother drive,” said NLEX Corporation President and General Manager J. Luigi L. Bautista.

With the help of regular inspections and feedback from motorists, NLEX Corporation was able to check the pulse of their customers for implementation of enhancement in the said expressway. Apart from this project, NLEX is also simultaneously undertaking the rehabilitation of Meycauayan and Bigaa bridges in Bulacan. This entails the replacement of the bridges’ girders and slabs to improve the structures thus enable the safe and unimpeded movement of people, goods, and services.

“All the enhancements that we are doing stemmed from our regular inspections and of course, from the feedback of motorists. It has been our practice to check the pulse of our customers so that anything that needs improvement must be implemented,” Bautista added.

The company is also building the first 5-kilometer section of the NLEX Connector between Caloocan and España Interchanges and is expected to accommodate around 35,000 motorists daily. NLEX completed the safety repairs of Pau Bridge in San Simon, Pampanga and Gumain Bridge in Floridablanca, Pampanga early this year. It also opened 8.2-kilometer Subic Freeport Expressway (SFEX) expansion that was constructed despite the pandemic and has since facilitated the more efficient flow of goods and services between the economic zones in Clark and Subic.

NLEX Corporation is a subsidiary of the Metro Pacific Tollways Corporation (MPTC), the toll road arm of the Metro Pacific Investments Corporation (MPIC).
