NLEX, SLEX hike toll fees

 

TopGear.com.ph Philippine Car News - NLEX, SLEX hike toll fees

Top government officials will meet on January 6 to find ways to cushion the impact of the latest hike in toll fees on two of Luzon's major expressways.

One possible solution is the gradual implementation of the toll-fee hike, GMANews.tv reported.

Higher toll fees greeted motorists on the South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) and the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) starting January 1.

SLEX operator South Luzon Tollway Corporation (SLTC) hiked toll fees for class 1 vehicles traveling from Alabang in Muntinlupa to Calamba in Laguna to P76, P54 higher than last year’s P22 toll.

NLEX operator Manila North Tollways Corporation (MNTC) raised the toll rate for class 1 vehicles traveling from Balintawak to the Bocaue Interchange in Bulacan to P41, P5 higher than the previous toll rate. From Bocaue onwards, class 1 vehicles are charged P2.38 per kilometer. MNTC officials said, however, that the rate per kilometer is lower than the fee charged in 2005.

Toll operators said higher fees will cover expenses on the roads’ maintenance and improvement.

    Yan problema eh we ask foreign investors to come in and put money in the country tapos pag oras na nang bawian, reklamo na! This country is not attracting foreign money because of that and how the government is so pro-poor... Imagine ngayon lang na implement ang toll hike, tagal na nyan ah...

    agree with tidus..
    kaya din biglaan ang taas kasi ang tagal ayaw payagan magtaas...then syempre foreign investor yun..they need to earn..

    kita naman natin ang improvement ng SLEX kaya sa tingin ko reasonable mag taas ng tool fee
  • southboy Jan 04 2011 @ 11:27am
    reasonable magtaas pero hindi reasonable ang itinaas.. x3.5 ang itinaas tapos sa april magiging x4 na? tapos dadagdagan pa ng tax? baka in 10-15 years mabawi ng investors na yan ang ginastos nila.. pano after nun? puro kita na lang? kayo ang magisip..

    sa mga totoong kulang ang pagiisip, research nyo ang MIDDLE CLASS CRISIS. since nakapag-comment kayo dito its safe to assume marunong kayo magbasa hahaha

    i guess reasonable naman yung pricing since you would benefit on how good is the construction is. for me i would rather pay the price than having a a night vision google crawling into the darkness of the expressway especially alabang to calamba section.

    for those sa nag iisip na corruption yan, then better learn to become an economist, from inflation to interest and kung gaano nila makukuha yung ininvest nila sa construction nyan and you know the the value of your peso 1 year ago is not the same value of your peso today. and di lang naman ang investors ang kukuha dyan sa profit nila eh of course you have to think how would you pay the people from maintenace unit and yung mga staff that makes the expressway works 24/7.

    Lagay (korupsyon) Project cost = Investment. Dito sa bayan natin, iyan ay part ng equation. Di ako galit sa investor. Sa gobyerno na dapat mag provide na kalsada para sa atin.
