Apart from the Skyway Stage 3 being open for free during the holiday season, Secretary Mark Villar of the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) temporarily opens the new and improved Subic Freeport Expressway (SFEX) to all motorists, specifically until January 15, 2021.
The newly-constructed road was made operational last December 28 last year. Built-in 1996, the SFEX stretched by about 8.2 km. Currently, the P1.6-billion-peso expansion project is now 92% complete with the remaining touches to be rendered by the first quarter of 2021. Villar believes that this road should be beneficial for those motorists who are to travel during the holiday season.
While there are still works to be done in some areas, we are temporarily opening the new road to ease the travel of our motorists this holiday season, especially the truckers and merchants who are delivering essential goods.
The project includes the addition of two new lanes for each direction, specifically two bridges, and a new tunnel. Apart from that, this expansion project also includes the enhancement of the Maritan Highway-Rizal Highway-Tipo Road junction. Now, most importantly, DPWH also said that the expressway shall be installed with LED lights, plus, an improved drainage system for better flood management.
During the pre-inspection of the SFEX, Abraham Sales, Toll Regulatory Board (TRB) executive director, and Nemesio Castillo, NLEX vice president for tollway development and engineering, were present in order to ensure the safe travels of motorists.
President and General Manager of the NLEX Corporation, Luigi Bautista, has expressed his excitement over the newly expanded road, claiming that motorists shall now have easier and faster travel within the expressway.
As mentioned, the new and improved SFEX was partially opened on December 28 last year and shall continue to be operational until January 15, 2021. Also, do take note that vehicles can only pass by from 6:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M.
