Subic expressway expansion finished by year-end
SUBIC BAY FREEPORT, Zambales, Philippines — The P1.6-billion infrastructure project to expand Subic Freeport Expressway (SFEx) is 50-percent complete and will be finished by the end of the year, according to the North Luzon Expressway (NLEx) Corp.
In a statement, NLEx said the road improvement resumed in mid-May after the lifting of enhanced community quarantine in the area.
The 8.2-kilometer SFEx connects this free port to the 94-km Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway, which in turn links to the Tarlac-Pangasinan-La Union Expressway.
The SFEx expansion includes adding two expressway lanes, two new spans at the Jadjad and Argonaut bridges, and a new tunnel near the existing one to improve traffic flow and road safety.
