NLEx Connector Road set to begin construction in Nov


A unit of Pangilinan-led Metro Pacific Tollways Corp. (MPTC) aims to begin constructing the first phase of the 8-kilometer, P23.3-billion North Luzon Expressway (NLEx)-South Luzon Expressway (SLEx) Connector Road next month, according to a top official. On the sidelines of an event last week, NLEX Corp. President Luigi Bautista said the road would be built in two phases, with the first to be built by DM Consunji Inc. The first phase would measure 5 kms and span from Caloocan City, traversing Circumferential Road 3, to España Avenue in Manila. Bautista declined to disclose the amount of the construction contract, but he said it would be signed this week and that the first bored pile, which he described as “the first work on the ground,” was scheduled for the second week of November. The construction, he added, would last for 20 months. For the second phase, Bautista said the company may award the construction contract by February 2020.
