MANILA, Philippines — Travelers heading north from Metro Manila can expect a slow-moving traffic along the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) on Maundy Thursday.

As of 9:18 a.m., the NLEX management said that Balintawak to Valenzuela northbound road is experiencing slow-moving traffic, approximately 20 to 40 kilometers per hour (kph), due to the influx of motorists as the long Holy Week break starts.
