Repairs to improve road quality along NLEX, SCTEX under way
Repairs and maintenance works are underway along the North Luzon Expressway and the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway to keep the road network safe and in good condition, according to NLEX Corp.
The roadworks are expected to be complete by June, including asphalt overlay and patching along a 109,886-square meter section of NLEX and 31,600-square meter stretch of SCTEX.
In a statement, NLEX Corp. President and General Manager J. Luigi Bautista said comprehensive pavement repairs are being done annually, covering the entire expressway, to ensure safe driving experience and improve the quality of service.
“Every year, we repave our roads portion by portion to make sure our motorists continue to experience safe and efficient travel. Our engineers regularly inspect the expressway and do the necessary repairs before serious damage takes place,” Bautista said.
For the duration of the program, the tollway company assured that minimal lane closures are being implemented and signs and other warning devices are also installed to guide motorists passing the repair sites.
Safety repairs are also being undertaken at Pau Bridge in NLEX San Simon, Pampanga and Gumain Bridge in SCTEX Floridablanca, Pampanga. Works include repair of concrete plinth, replacement of bearing pad, and realignment of expansion joint.
