The North Luzon and Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressways (NLEX & SCTEX) will remain operational for the duration of the ECQ, as well as the upcoming Holy Week, but on a limited capacity.
“We recognize the critical role of our company in providing vital infrastructure for the unimpeded flow of goods and services. Our team commits to comply with government guidelines and directives, and continue to protect our employees and motorists,” said Luigi Bautista, president, and general manager of NLEX Corporation.
Though both expressways will always be open to allow the unhampered movement of essential goods and transit of frontliners, workers, and Authorized Persons Outside of Residence (APOR), their toll plazas, on the other hand, will only have 50% to 60% open lanes.
Also, NLEX Corporation added, their manpower deployment for toll and traffic operations will only be at 60% to 70%. The operator is also in close coordination with the Philippine National Police (PNP) regarding checkpoint/monitoring operations along the expressways.
To better serve motorists, the operator has free 24-hour towing to the nearest exit for Class 1 vehicles, available from 6:00 a.m. of March 31, 2021, to 6:00 a.m. of April 5, 2021.
To check the current traffic situation, motorists may visit the NLEX Corporation Facebook and Twitter accounts for updates. The Customer Hotline 1-35000 also operates 24/7 to address motorists’ concerns.
