Villar was instrumental in the acceleration of the project construction activities when he formed a task force to speed up the delivery of right-of-way for this vital infrastructure which not only aims to address traffic problems but also generate massive investments to boost the economy.
To ensure the NLEX Harbor Link Segment 10s immediate completion, he also initiated several site inspections and coordination meetings to ramp up the progress of this traffic decongestion project.
NLEX Corporation President and General Manager Luigi Bautista cited that the company’s partnership with the government helped accelerate the construction of the project, noting that the team was able to do in two to three months the works that could have been accomplished in five to six months.
Bautista also said that the NLEX Harbor Link Segment 10 is seen to bring more opportunities in nearby communities and provinces.
Along with the full opening of the NLEX Harbor Link Segment 10 is the partial opening of the new Caloocan Interchange — the fourth gateway of NLEX to Metro Manila, after Balintawak, Mindanao Avenue, and Karuhatan.
The new Caloocan Interchange serves as the point where the NLEX Harbor Link Segment 10, the C3R-10 section, and the NLEX Connector will converge. This junction is located along the PNR tracks in 5thAvenue/C3 Road in Caloocan City.
