    NLEX Corporation President and General Manager J. Luigi Bautista assured that the maintenance work will result in smooth driving and enhanced safety on the road.

    “Safety and convenience must go hand in hand in order to maintain a high level of customer experience. While we have frequent road inspections and repairs, this yearly program is more comprehensive and will vastly improve the quality of our roads for the benefit of thousands of motorists plying our expressways every day,” Bautista was quoted as saying.

    Aside from the road repairs, the company is currently upgrading the Candaba Viaduct, San Matias Bridge, and Pasig-Potrero Bridge and constructing the eight-kilometer NLEX Connector.
