Integration to cut tollway travel time


FULL integration of North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) and Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX) in March would cut travel time to the country’s north by up to 40 minutes, the highways’ toll operators said on Wednesday.

The highways’ concessionaire, Manila North Tollways Corp. (MNTC), said the integration is 85-percent complete and would be providing seamless travel by March.

“The integration will provide a seamless travel by reducing what used to be five or four stops, when traveling from Balintawak to Tarlac and Balintawak to Subic, to just two stops,” MNTC Vice President Glen Campos told reporters during a tour of the highway.

Campos said this would save motorists a good 35 to 40 minutes’ travel time, without a change in toll rates.
