It won’t be long before we see a new road connecting the NLEX and SLEX!
Reports say that the connector road linking the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) to South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) is good to go, according to the Department of Finance.

The connector road will incur an expense of P23.2 billion. According to the Public-Private Partnership (PPP) Center, whoever bids the project will cover the construction, operation, and maintenance of the 8-kilometer elevated expressway.
The elevated connector road will start from the C3 Road in Caloocan City passing through Manila, crossing over España Boulevard towards PUP in Sta. Mesa and will connect at Metro Manila Skyway Stage 3.
According to the PPP Center:
“Once completed, the NLEX-SLEX Connector Road is expected to decongest traffic in Metro Manila by providing an alternative to C-5 Road, Epifanio de los Santos Avenue (EDSA), and other major thoroughfares, and cut the travel time between NLEX and SLEX to 15 to 20 minutes which today makes more than an hour.”
