NLEX speeds up repairs of Meycauayan, Balagtas bridges
The North Luzon Expressway Corp is speeding up rehabilitation of its bridges in Meycauayan and Balagtas, both in Bulacan.
The company seeks to finish the projects by the middle of August, earlier than the September target.
In a statement, J. Luigi Bautista, president and general manager of NLEX Corp., said the tollway company and its contractor worked together to find ways to speed up the work and complete the project for the benefit of the public.
“We have reached a significant breakthrough in our discussions with our contractor so we can finish ahead of schedule and provide motorists with safer and more convenient travel before the ‘ber’ months begin,” he said.
“Barring any unforeseen events, the accelerated completion date of Bigaa Bridge is August 11 (instead of August 31), and the substantial completion date for Meycauayan is August 16 (instead of September 15),” Bautista said.
Rehabilitation work on the southbound portion of Meycauayan bridge has been finished and the repairs on the northbound side of the bridge will start on July 18. Meanwhile, work on the northbound segment of the Bigaa bridge in Balagtas is steadily progressing.
