As mentioned in our previous story, the NLEX Harbor Link Segment 10 C3-R10 Section is one of the key projects under the government’s EDSA Decongestion Program. Earlier today, the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) reaffirmed that the elevated expressway is on track for its partial opening this February.
“The project is now 75% complete. We are on track to open the C3 to Dagat-Dagatan Avenue by February and the entire C3-R10 Section by March to help decongest major roads such as EDSA and C5. With the full completion of the project, we expect to reduce travel time from Port Area to NLEX to just 10 minutes,” said agency secretary Mark Villar.
This 2.6km section—once fully operational this March—will connect C3 Road in Caloocan to Radial Road 10 in Navotas City and eventually to the 5.65km Harbor Link Segment 10. It is expected to relieve traffic in the surrounding areas and service 30,000 vehicles daily. As of writing, we have no word yet on any toll estimates.
“Now that the NLEX Harbor Link Segment 10 C3-R10 Section is about to be completed, we are aiming to contribute more to the productive capacity of the economy, generate jobs, and ease traffic congestion in Metro Manila,” said NLEX Corporation president and general manager J. Luigi Bautista.
It’s really starting to take shape. What do you think?
