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

Project Description

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 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 North Luzon Expressway East will be connected to the planned Central Luzon Link Expressway.
