New 1.8 kilometer section opened to motorists and truckers

In case you missed it, NLEX Corporation has announced the opening of NLEX Connector’s newest section: España to Magsaysay. The opening of the new section was just in time for the expected surge of motorists for All Saints’ Day, All Souls’ Day, and barangay election long weekends. 

This is also part of the “Safe Trip Mo Sagot Ko” motorist assistance program of the Metro Pacific Tollways Corporation (MPTC) which aims to enhance expressway services for safer, faster, and more convenient travel.

“To alleviate the expected increase in traffic volume, we immediately decided to open the NLEX Connector España to Magsaysay Section. This should help improve the travel experience of motorists as this new section will make travel from Metro Manila to the North and vice versa, faster, and more convenient, especially this Undas,” said NLEX Corporation President, Luigi Bautista.

The tollway company will retain the current discounted rate of PHP 86.00 for the NLEX Connector until further notice. Providing a 24/7 alternative route to motorists in all vehicle classes, the opening of the additional 1.8 km, four-lane NLEX Connector España to Magsaysay Section will help ease traffic congestion in Metro Manila, especially in major thoroughfares such as EDSA and C5.

Apart from cutting the travel time from C3 in Caloocan to Magsaysay Boulevard in Manila to just 8 minutes, it is seen to ease the traffic conditions in Nagtahan, G. Araneta, Aurora Blvd, Lacson, Magsaysay and España BLVD. It will also help improve the accessibility of motorists traveling from Manila, San Juan, and other nearby cities as they can enter the NLEX Connector Magsaysay Interchange on-ramp and head straight to the north via NLEX.

In total, the NLEX Connector currently has three interchanges located on C3 Road/5th Avenue in Caloocan, España, and Magsaysay Blvd. in Manila.

NLEX Corporation is a subsidiary of the Metro Pacific Tollways Corporation (MPTC), the toll road arm of the Metro Pacific Investments Corporation (MPIC).
