North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) Corporation and Sta. Clara International Corporation recently signed a Php 1.6 billion worth of expansion project at the Subic Freeport Expressway (SFEX).

The SFEX Capacity Expansion Project aims to build new expressway lanes, bridges, and a tunnel at the Subic Freeport Zone – two additional expressway lanes, and two bridges at Jadjad and Argonaut, and a tunnel – to better accommodate the growing number of motorists going to and from the said economic zone.

Leading the contract signing are NLEX Corporation president and general manager J. Luigi L. Bautista (3rd from right), NLEX Corporation chief operating officer Raul L. Ignacio (2nd from right) and Sta. Clara International Corporation chairman and managing director Nicandro G.Linao (3rd from left). Other signatories to the contract are NLEX Corporation chief finance officer Ma. Theresa O. Wells (right) and Sta. Clara International Corporation deputy managing director Fernando Delgado (second from left), with DOTr consultant Alberto Suansing (left) as a witness.

The SFEX Capacity Expansion is seen to improve traffic in the area and promote road safety as the new lanes will segregate northbound and southbound motorists along separate carriageways. In addition, the SFEX will be installed with expressway-standard LED lights to keep the motorists safe when driving at night.

It will also complement the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority’s (SBMA) infrastructure development program that includes the improvement of airport and seaport, the widening of roads, and the construction of an SBMA Corporate Center.
