0 293

Motorists, commuters, and truckers bound for the cities of Malabon, Caloocan and Navotas will have faster travel time with the opening of the NLEX Harbor Link Malabon Exit.

The route is part of the 2.6-kilometer elevated NLEX Harbor Link C3-R10 Section between the new Caloocan Interchange in C3 Road, Caloocan City to Radial Road 10, Navotas City, connecting the previously opened 5.65-kilometer NLEX Harbor Link Segment 10 that traverses Karuhatan, Valenzuela City, Governor Pascual Avenue in Malabon City, and 5th Avenue/C3 Road, Caloocan City.

Aside from significantly easing up the daily traffic congestion and serving as an alternate route to Dagat-Dagatan Avenue, the Malabon Exit also aims to open up development potentials in the area.

Public Works Secretary Mark Villar said the completion of the Harbor Link C3-R10 Section will benefit around 30,000 motorists daily.

“When we open the entire C3-R10 Section next month, travel time between NLEX and the CAMANAVA area will be reduced from 60 to 10 minutes, or a savings of 50 minutes,” he said.

For its part, NLEX Corporation is committed to support the government’s aim to alleviate traffic congestion in Metro Manila through high impact infrastructure projects such as the NLEX Harbor Link that improves commuter mobility between airports, seaports, and growth corridors in both the north and south.
