The Marilao East Service Road will start its construction soon. This announcement came after the Department of Transportation (DOTr) and the Toll Regulatory Board (TRB) signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) Corporation, the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH), and the Marilao municipal government.
The MOA states that the NLEX Corporation will allow the DPWH Region 3 to use its right-of-way (ROW) for the Marilao East Service Road Project. As per Marilao, Bulacan Mayor Ricardo Silvestre, the soon-to-be accomplished road shall provide more seamless access to a portion of the NLEX starting from Barcelona Academy Inc. in Barangay Lias and will end at the Mario Santiago Road in Marilao, Bulacan.
Apart from linking the aforementioned areas, the Marilao East Service Road shall also ease the growing traffic volume at Meycauayan-Marilao Corridor. Furthermore, NLEX Corporation president, J. Luigi L. Bautista, said that they are more than happy to help the two municipalities have improved accessibility in the future.
The DPWH Region 3 will be tasked to shoulder the expense of the road project within 300 calendar days from the issuance of a Notice to Proceed. Aside from that, the government agency is also tasked to secure work permits from NLEX Corporation as well as acquire a permanent ROW for the Marilao East Service Road.
According to Bautista, “this project will ultimately benefit the public as this will provide our host communities in Meycauayan City and Marilao.” This is all thanks to Marilao East Service Road’s better connection and improved accessibility for all motorists who are to traverse through the following areas.
