Travel from the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) going to the Manila port area is seen to be faster with the opening of the Malabon Exit of the NLEX Harbor Link.

Public Works Secretary Mark Villar said the Malabon exit of the highway will open on February 21.

Villar and officials of the NLEX Corporation inspected the 1.2-kilometer section last week to ensure it is safe for motorists to use.

The NLEX Harbor Link C3-R10 Section starts from Caloocan Interchange, C3 Road, Caloocan City to Radial Road 10, Navotas City, connecting to the previously opened 5.65-kilometer NLEX Harbor Link Segment 10 that passes through Karuhatan, Valenzuela City, Governor Pascual Avenue in Malabon City, and 5th Avenue/C3 Road, Caloocan City.

It is expected to reduce travel time from Port Area to NLEX to just 10 minutes and is being eyed to provide direct access for commercial vehicles, especially heavy trucks.

“We are anticipating that truckers and freight forwarders will greatly benefit from this new road since their cargo trucks will have 24/7 access, and in turn translate to faster delivery of goods to and from the provinces in North and Central Luzon,” said NLEX Corporation Chief Operating Officer Raul Ignacio.
