The Metro Pacific Investments Corporation owned Manila North Tollways Corporation (MNTC) has submitted to Secretary Mark Villar of the Department of Public Works and Highways Corporations, a proposed Public-Private Partnership project that will link the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) to the Cavite Expressway (Cavitex).

Phase 1 of the proposed expressway will start at the end of Radial Road 10 (R-10) and proceed to Anda Circle in Manila. Phase 2 will proceed from Anda Circle, traverse Roxas Boulevard and head straight to Cavitex.

 

The MNTC proposal hopes to help alleviate traffic – particularly truck-traffic – congestion in Metro Manila and spur economic growth through increased commercial activity, by providing the city with a 4-lane roadway that connects the North to South, without having to pass through the already strained EDSA or C5 highways

The 15 kilometer expressway comes with a 62.4 Billion Peso price-tag because the proposed link will be made underground using “Push-tunnel” construction technology to minimize the impact its construction would have on traffic and on the existing surface infrastructure – a first in the Philippines.

As of this writing the DPWH has asked the MNTC to submit more information on the feasibility of the project.
