From NLEx Corporation Twitter post

MANILA, Philippines – Vehicles are starting to queue at North Luzon Expressway (NLEx), especially along the northbound and southbound exits of Bocaue and the Bocaue Toll Plaza at the southbound lane Sunday.

According to a tweet from NLEx’s official account, traffic at the Bocaue toll plaza as of 5:03 p.m. is now slow moving, as well as those heading to Sta. Maria town using the separate Bocaue exits.


But traffic situations at the rest of the NLEx’s major entry and exit points remain light, including the Mindanao Avenue exit and the Balintawak toll plaza, although vehicle buildup at the Balintawak area is fairly common.

Motorists meanwhile can expect light to moderate traffic along the Candaba viaduct bridge, the longest bridge in the NLEx system.


On the southern side of Metro Manila, the South Luzon Expressway (SLEx) still enjoys light to moderate traffic, especially on both lanes of the Alabang Viaduct, Ayala toll plaza, and Calamba toll plaza.

However, the Toll Regulatory Board noted that buildup is also starting at the Skyway’s elevated main toll plaza.

The Cavite Expressway, meanwhile, said that traffic in the 14-kilometer stretch highway is generally light.
