In accordance with the Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine (MECQ) protocols set up by the Philippine government from August 4 to August 18, 2020, checkpoints have been added to key locations in order to help control the spread of the ongoing pandemic. Keeping in line with this, the NLEX corporation together with the Philippine National Police (PNP) has set up checkpoints in key areas of the expressway. This was done to ensure the safety of those who need to enter and exit the National Capital Region for essential work.
Checkpoints are set up in the following locations along the North Luzon Expressway and along the Subic Clark Tarlac Expressway.
The NLEX Corporation also advises motorists that they should also be aware of checkpoint operations by LGUs in areas that they intend to pass through. Motorists are also further advised to cooperate and comply with the instructions at the checkpoints to ensure everyone’s safety and security as well as to ensure a smooth flow of traffic through the area. The NLEX Corporation also states that it remains committed to the prevention of the spread of the COVID-19 virus and requests motorists to act responsibly. It is important to note that more checkpoints might be added at any given moment and as such this list may change at any given time.
For motorists who need to travel through these areas, it is highly recommended that before you set off for your journey to make sure that your travel documents are in order.
