Roads in the Philippines

The North Luzon East Expressway is currently under-construction, 4-lane, 92.1-kilometer long limited-access toll expressway on the island of Luzon in the Philippines.[1]

Project Description[edit]

With a length of 92.1 km., the project consists of Phase I and Phase II and will form an important transport access in the eastern area of Central Luzon. NLEX East Expressway is up to Cabanatuan starting from the end point of La-Mesa Parkway and/or junction of C–6 in San Jose del Monte via Santa Maria, Bulacan, Norzagaray, Angat, San Ildefonso, San Miguel, Gapan, and Santa Rosa parallel to the Pan-Philippine Highway (AH26). Bridges will be required for the project to cross Angat River, Peñaranda River, and Pampanga River.[1] The completion of the expressway will be in 2022.[1]

The expressway, once completed, will decongest the Central Luzon segment of the Maharlika Highway, provide a faster route to Cagayan Valley, create a more efficient trade route between municipalities of Bulacan and Nueva Ecija, and Metro Manila. The project will also cater on women to work on its construction, to promote gender equality in the workforce.

The North Luzon Expressway East will be connected to the also under construction expressway, the Central Luzon Link Expressway.

Project Bidding[edit]

The bidding of the project goes to a private construction contractor.[1]
