The North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) Harbor Link Segment number 10 is set to launch next week. After the final inspection and dry run by the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH), the new highway will be operational by February 26, 2019.
While the expressway is set to open soon, the project was scheduled to be operational back in the fourth quarter of 2018. Possible schedule conflicts and extensive dry runs could have pushed back the opening.
Today, we conducted the final inspection and dry run of the NLEX Harbor Link Segment 10 in time for its opening next Tuesday - Feb 26. The road project will benefit around 30,000 motorists per day and will decrease travel time from Valenzuela City to C-3 in Caloocan from 1 hour to only about 5 minutes.
Spanning a length of 5.65 km, the new highway will link Valenzuela, Malabon, and Caloocan, helping ease the journey to and from said cities. Other than being able to go through these cities much easier than before, the highway also provides motorists with easy access to NLEX foregoing the need to traverse EDSA to get to the NLEX Balintawak toll plaza.
In addition, NLEX Harbor Link 10, the road will connect Manila’s port area to the mentioned cities via C-3. Providing delivery vehicles with faster and more efficient routes increasing their productivity while decreasing their lead times.
Further expansions and improvements are set to be made by the NLEX corporation and DPWH. With plans to expand the expressway to connect it to the Caloocan interchange, motorists have plenty more conveniences in the future to look forward to. With partial opening of this segment in the works, once operational, Harbor Link 10, C3-R section, as well as NLEX connector routes will make a substantial improvement to NLEX corporation’s expanding road network.
