Motorists traveling along the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) are set to benefit from safer roads after NLEX Corporation completed repairs on the 84-kilometer freeway. 

NLEX Corporation’s President Luigi Bautista said repairs were undertaken on the thoroughfare to ensure the safety of drivers while on the road. 

The project was launched in February this year and dealt with comprehensive pavement repairs. Asphalt overlay and patching works were undertaken on a 109,886-square meter section of the North Luzon Expressway and a 31,600-square meter section of the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX).

With repairs completed, Bautista expects a smoother travel experience for users of the expressway.

“Each year, we strive to fulfill our obligation to provide our customers with the best service. With the completion of the pavement repair program, we are optimistic that our motorists will have a safer and smoother drive,” he said.

Besides this massive mending plan, Bautista noted that the expressway undergoes regular inspections. He adds that they also employ surveys to motorists to address aspects they can further improve on. 

“All the enhancements that we are doing stemmed from our regular inspections and of course, from the feedback of motorists. It has been our practice to check the pulse of our customers so that anything that needs improvement must be implemented,” he explained. 

According to Bautista, rehabilitation and repair work are also happening at the Meycauayan Bridge and Bigaa Bridge in Bulacan, which involves the replacement of girders and slabs to strengthen the 60-year-old structures.
