NLEX starts widening works on Meycauayan NB exit, new F. Raymundo exit
Last week, NLEX Corporation announced they will begin widening the Meycauayan northbound exit in order to alleviate traffic in the area. From just having two lanes, the northbound exit will soon have three lanes in order to accommodate more vehicles.
But in order to help motorists bypass the busy Meycauayan Interchange when heading to their destinations, they have also started work on a new northbound exit.
NLEX Corporation announced that they have started construction of a new northbound exit for motorists heading to Meycauayan. The new exit will be located at Barangay Pandayan and will be situated at F. Raymundo.
Set to be completed before Christmas, the two works aim to ease the recurrent traffic buildup in NLEX Meycauayan due to the high volume of vehicles queuing at the exit. Once the widening of the Meycauayan exit ramp is completed, it will expand its capacity and ease traffic, especially for those bound for Iba/Camalig road.
Meanwhile, the new F. Raymundo Exit will serve as an alternate and additional route that is aimed at “bypassing” the Meycauayan Interchange and the busy Iba/Camalig road.
“We are glad that we have NLEX as our partner in alleviating the traffic caused by the increasing volume of vehicles coming to and from our city. We assure the public that the City of Meycauayan and NLEX Corporation will continuously work together in exploring long-term infrastructure solutions to help solve the traffic demand of the city,” said Henry Villarica, Mayor of Meycauayan City.
On the other hand, NLEX Corporation president J. Luigi L. Bautista shared that he would like to assure motorists that traffic management and safety measures will be in place to ensure motorist safety.
“During the construction period, minimal lane closures will be implemented at the latter stage of the project. We would like to assure our motorists that traffic management and safety measures will be in place to ensure motorists’ safety and minimize travel delays. Road signs and other warning devices will also be installed to guide motorists,” added Bautista.
With the goal of finishing the two projects before Christmas, NLEX Corporation has its work cut out for them as the holidays draw closer.
