The elevated expressway that will provide direct access between R10 in Navotas City and NLEX is set for partial opening in February, according to Public Works and Highways Secretary Mark Villar.
During an inspection, Villar said that the C3-R10 Section of NLEX Harbor Link Segment 10 is now 75 percent complete.
“We are on track to open the C3 to Dagat-Dagatan Avenue by February and the entire C3-R10 Section by March to help decongest major roads such as EDSA and C5,” he said.
Villar said travel time from Port Area to NLEX would be reduced to just 10 minutes once the project is fully completed.
The 2.6-kilometer section of NLEX Harbor Link from Caloocan Interchange, C3 Road in Caloocan City to Radial Road 10 in Navotas City will link to the 5.65-kilometer NLEX Harbor Link Segment 10 that passes through Karuhatan, Valenzuela City, Governor Pascual Avenue in Malabon City, and 5th Avenue/C3 Road, Caloocan City.
“We’re very excited to fulfill our vision of decongesting Metro Manila traffic, which is one of the major thrusts of the administration’s infrastructure program,” Villar said.
The infrastructure project is seen to significantly benefit the transport logistics industry as cargo trucks will have 24/7 access from the port to NLEX, sparing them from truck ban and congested local roads. – Richmond Mercurio
