Two new exits in a bid to relieve traffic
To solve the traffic congestion in Meycauayan, Bulacan, the Department of Transportation (DOTr), through the Toll Regulatory Board (TRB), recently opened the Libtong and Pandayan exit ramps along the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX).
The construction of the Php 31.5 million exit ramps was started by the NLEX Corporation this year to ease the vehicular traffic at the Meycauayan Interchange. Apart from the exits, the southbound toll plaza has been expanded to accommodate more vehicles.
During the opening ceremony of the exit ramps held last July 6, NLEX Corp. President Rodrigo Franco revealed that more traffic-decongestion programs and enhancements are being undertaken in NLEX to deliver quality service to motorists.
Meanwhile, in her speech, Congresswoman Villarica recognized the significant role of DOTr Secretary Arthur Tugade in making the traffic improvement program in Meycauayan possible.
Also present during the ceremony were Meycauayan City Mayor Henry R. Villarica, Vice Mayor Rafael S. Manzano, Jr., other LGU officials, NLEX Corporation Senior Vice President for Tollways Development and Engineering Raul L. Ignacio, Senior Vice President for Communications and Stakeholder Management Romulo S. Quimbo, Jr., Vice President for Project Management Nemesio G. Castillo, Vice President for Asset Management Jennifer Jane T. Go, and Assistant Vice President for Government Relations Roberto N. Tañada.
