  • NAIAX Closely Monitors the Speed Limit With Cameras, Displays
  • The Ninoy Aquino International Airport Expressway (NAIAX) links Mero Manila to NAIA and the Entertainment City. The expressway imposes a 60kph maximum speed limit throughout the 11.6 km length and monitors cars with speed cameras.

    Back in June 2019, SMC Tollways, the operator of Skyway, NAIAX, SLEX and STAR in the south, posted images on the official Twitter page screenshots of their speed cameras and how they monitor violations such as overspeeding and swerving.

    Last Wednesday, a netizen posted a photo of what looks to be newly installed displays above each lane for the motorists to be aware of their speed in kilometers per hour, likely to warn them of the speed limit before they are apprehended.

    The display shows the speed in red when it goes over 60kph and in green if the speed is still within the limit. Philippine Primer has reached out to SMC Tollways regarding this new feature and they have yet to respond.

    It is safe to say to keep in mind the speed limit of the expressway you are traversing. As a refresher, the following are the speed limits of the expressways in the country:

    Minimum Maximum
    For Bus and Trucks For Cars
    Tarlac-Pangasinan-La Union Expressway (TPLEx) 60 kph 100kph
    Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEx) 60 kph 100 kph
    North Luzon Expressway (NLEx) 60 kph 80 kph 100 kph
    Cavite Expressway (CAVITEx) 60 kph 80 kph 100 kph
    NAIA Expressway (NAIAx) 60 kph
    Skyway 60 kph 80 kph 100 kph
    South Luzon Expressway (SLEx) 60 kph 80 kph 100 kph
    Muntinlupa-Cavite Expressway (MCX) 60 kph 80 kph 100 kph
    Southern Tagalog Arterial Road (STAR) Tollway
    (now Apolinario Mabini Super Highway)
    60 kph 80 kph 100 kph

    As a small section of the major expressways in the Metro Manila area, the imposed 60 kpm maximum on the NAIAX is reasonable and with the motorists’ safety in mind. The expressway is not the place to put the pedal to the metal as there are race tracks for that.

    Drive safely!
