Motorists to enjoy toll-free pass on NLEX Harbor Link’s C3-R10 section

The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) announced that toll fees will temporarily be waived at the newly completed C3-R10 Section of the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) Harbor Link Segment 10 once it opens to vehicular traffic later today.

“Wala pa na munang toll adjustment. Libre muna itong Harbor Link for you to enjoy and help you travel around Metro Manila and Luzon,” Public Works and Highways Secretary Mark Villar said during the opening ceremony in Navotas City on Monday.

Villar said that the newly completed 2.6-kilometer section will help decongest traffic in Metro Manila.

“We’re expected to divert 70% of the trucks in Metro Manila… otherwise pass through C-5 and other Metro Manila thoroughfares.  Napakalaking bagay sa traffic, hindi lamang sa Manila area patisa buong Metro Manila and help with the decongestion of other major thoroughfares,” Villar said.

The DPWH official said that the traffic situation in metropolis will change once the section opens to vehicular traffic as trucks and private vehicles would finally be able to utilize the thoroughfare.

“Once we open this afternoon at 5:00 p.m. ibang-iba na po ang landscape ng Metro Manila dahil karamihan po ng mga trucks and even regular vehicles would be able to utilize this and we will significantly move towards our dream of decongesting the metropolis,” Villar said.

The 2.6-kilometer section extends the existing 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 bypassing EDSA and Balintawak Toll Plaza. 

The C3-R10 section of the NLEX Harbor Link also includes three exit off-ramps: Segment 10-C3 Ramp to Caloocan City, Dagat-Dagatan Ramp to Malabon City, and C3-R10 Ramp to Navotas City.
