BOCAUE, BULACAN — Public Works Secretary Mark Villar on Wednesday made an early morning inspection of the North Luzon Expressway (NLEx) Harbor Link Segment 10 that is expected to officially open next week.

The 5.65-kilometer elevated expressway, which will connect C3 in Caloocan City to NLEX Valenzuela City, will cut the travel time from one hour to 10 minutes.


“The NLEX Harbor Link Segment 10 will be a traffic game changer since this will reduce travel time from C3 to NLEX to just 10 minutes,” said Villar.

He said some 30,000 vehicles would benefit from the new expressway.


Villar was joined by NLEx and other DPWH officials in the inspection.

Shipment of goods from Northern and Central Luzon to the Port Area in Manila and vice versa would become faster and easier when the road link finally opens on Feb. 26, Villar said.

He said its completion is envisioned to ease traffic congestion in Metro Manila as it will serve as an alternate corridor for motorists traveling from Central and North Luzon provinces, Valenzuela City, and Quezon City to Manila.

“The next phase of this project is the 2.6-km section from C3 Road, Caloocan City to R10, Navotas City which we hope to finish by the end of this year,” Villar said./lzb
