Slow traffic on NLEx’s Balintawak southbound lane on Rizal Day morning

/ 11:02 AM December 30, 2019

MANILA, Philippines – Motorists heading south on the North Luzon Expressway (NLEx) should brace for heavy traffic upon reaching the southbound area of Balintawak, going through EDSA.

According to the NLEx’s live monitoring system, vehicles at the said location have been slow-moving as of 10:45 a.m. of Monday, Rizal Day.  This is partly due to the construction of the Skyway connector ramp, leaving only three lanes available and causing a bottleneck.


But traffic flow for the rest of the NLEX’s entry and exit points, including the northbound Balintawak Toll Plaza, the Mindanao Avenue exit, the Karuhatan exit in Valenzuela City, and the Bocaue Toll Plaza remains light and smooth.

Meanwhile, the number of vehicles on the Candaba viaduct, the longest bridge in the NLEx system, is also sparse as of posting.
