NLEX Corp. Invests Over P150 Million on Repairs for SCTEX
NLEX Corporation is utilizing more than P150 million for the restoration and repair of bridges and pavements in select areas of the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX).
The said repair projects are in line with the company’s move to beef its services for customers by enhancing safety and convenience.
The section of Loakan and Cui river bridges in Dinalupihan, Bataan will undergo restoration and enhancement works. Such move will prevent structures from scouring and erosion, especially during the rainy season, thus improve the safety of motorists and locals in the said areas.
Aside from that, pavement repair programs on a 38-kilometer segment of the SCTEX–both directions from Tarlac to Tipo, including the Subic Freeport Expressway (SFEX)–and a 40-kilometer segment of the Noth Luzon Expressway (NLEX) from Balintawak to Sta. Ines will undergo light patching works and asphalt overlays.
“These are part of our efforts to maintain and make our roads safe for all weather conditions, giving the public comfortable travel and helping facilitate efficient mobility of goods and services,” said NLEX Corporation President and General Manager Luigi Bautista.
Since the NLEX-SCTEX Integration in 2016, the company has been modernizing all the world-class features of the NLEX and SCTEX–from smooth pavements to electronic toll collection and up-to-date traffic systems, including the brand of service that has friendly and courteous toll tellers and patrol crews.
Last year, four camera-equipped emergency call boxes (ECB) were installed at Dinalupihan (Subic-bound), Porac (Subic-bound), Dolores (Tarlac-bound), and San Miguel (Tarlac-bound) to enhance communication between motorists and SCTEX personnel responsible for traffic monitoring and control.
Variable electronic message signs which provide useful and updated traffic information were also put up at Floridablanca (Subic-bound), Concepcion (Subic-bound), Porac (Tarlac-bound), and Bamban (Tarlac-bound) interchanges.
Reflective delineator posts and plates were mounted at the expressway to help motorists navigate the road safely during nighttime.
