After the provisional approval of the Toll Regulatory Board last October 18, the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) Corporation implements additional toll fees of P0.25 per kilometer for its closed system.
The adjustment was approved due to the completion of 64 new lane-kilometers along Bulacan and Pampanga portion of the expressway that amounts to around P2.5 billion.
Class 1 vehicles (cars, jeepneys, pickups, taxis, vans, and vehicles with 2-axles and 7ft. height) travelling the entire NLEX between EDSA Balintawak or Mindanao Avenue in Quezon City to Sta. Ines in Mabalacat City, Pampanga will only pay an additional P18. Class 2 vehicles (buses, trucks with 2-axles and 7ft. above height and light vehicles with more than 2-axles and 7ft. height) on the same route will have to pay additional P46, and additional P56 for Class 3 vehicles (trucks with 3 or more axles and 7ft. above height).
These toll fee changes on NLEX exclude the existing NLEX open system, thus motorists travelling within Quezon City, Valenzuela City, Meycauayan, and Marilao sections will continue to be charged with the existing P45 toll fee.
Meanwhile, toll charges within the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX) system remains the same for all vehicle classes. However, if you are coming from NLEX and exiting in SCTEX, the resulting toll fee will consequently reflect the new rate.
