Bulacan execs back rehab of NLEX bridges in Meycauayan, Balagtas
Bulacan Governor Daniel Fernando and several mayors in the province expressed their support for the rehabilitation of the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) bridges in Meycauayan and Bigaa in Balagtas to make travel easier for motorists.
“We extend support to their important infrastructure developments that will improve the serviceability of our expressway, strengthen connectivity, boost investment and open up job opportunities in the Province of Bulacan,” Fernando said.
“These two bridges have been vital in facilitating safe and unimpeded travel of motorists and transport of goods in and out of the expressway. We are optimistic that once the rehabilitation is completed, we can expect a better travel experience,” said Bocaue Mayor Jose Santiago Jr. in a statement.
Last April, the NLEX Corporation started the rehabilitation of the said bridges which includes replacement of girders and slabs to strengthen the structures and improve their lifespan.
Meycauayan Mayor Linabelle Villarica said: “We can all expect a better travel experience after the project’s completion in September.”
“We seek the patience and understanding of the public as the lane closures are necessary to ensure everyone’s safety while the rehabilitation of the Meycauayan Bridge is being completed,” she added.
NLEX Corp. president and general manager J. Luigi Bautista assured the public that efforts are being made to ensure safety and reduce traffic congestion.
“We are very pleased and grateful that the bridge rehabilitation project has been well-received by our host LGUs. Be assured that NLEX Corp. will continue to upgrade its roads to uphold quality standards and most importantly, provide safety and convenience for the public,” he said.
