Work on NLEX-SLEX connector road to start in Q4
Construction of the P23B toll road that will connect the North Luzon Expressway and the South Luzon Expressway is expected to start in the fourth quarter of the year.
NLEX president Rodrigo Franco said they have already completed the engineering design of the NLEX-SLEX connector road and the government is currently acquiring right of way for the project.
“We need the right of way to start the project, maybe fourth quarter,” Franco said.
The project involves the construction of an eight-kilometer, four-lane toll road linking the North Luzon Expressway and South Luzon Expressway, passing through Metro Manila and using the existing Philippine National Railway alignment as its route.
NLEX is investing P15.74 billion in the project while the government is seen to spend P7.46 billion for right of way acquisition.
The project is expected to be completed in two to three years, depending on the availability of right of way.
