  • SCTEX To Add 20 More Toll Lanes to Ease Expressway Transactions
  • Traveling to northern Luzon will soon be faster and easier as NLEX Corporation announced last May 15 the construction of 20 new toll lanes in Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX).

    The toll expansion project is set to start construction in July and is expected to be completed in November. It will cover the areas of Clark North, Clark South, San Miguel, Bamban, and Tarlac toll plazas. The project aims to boost toll transactions and ease traffic volume along SCTEX not only in daily operations but also during peak hours.

    “The new lanes aim to enable speedy toll transactions even during peak hours and holidays when traffic volume on the expressway rises sharply,” said NLEX Corporation President and General Manager Luigi Bautista.

    Each toll lane in Clark North Entry & Exit and Clark South B Exit will have one new lane, and two new lanes for each Clark South A Exit and Tarlac Entry & Exit. This is to easily serve motorists who are traveling in the said areas.

    The northbound entry and southbound exit of San Miguel will have two new lanes, while another lane will be added to northbound exit. According to NLEX Corporation, it will also be transformed into a full interchange lane with complete exit and entry points from north and south directions to open more access to motorists arriving and exiting San Miguel.

    The Bamban Interchange—which will soon open, will be provided with three entry and exit lanes to create a direct route to New Clark City where the Southeast Asian Games 2019 will be held.

    “The additional toll lanes will help improve SCTEX’s connectivity in its areas, particularly in Clark, which is being positioned as Asia’s next metropolis and investment center,” Bautista added.

    SCTEX is the country’s longest expressway at 94 kilometers.
