Meycauayan East Service Road opened to public

THE Meycauayan East Service Road was formally opened to the public on Friday, NLEX Corp. said in an e-mailed statement.

The new access road connects Meycauayan city’s Libtong and Lawang Bato in Valenzuela City, which will “ease both northbound and southbound traffic in the city.”

The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) constructed the new service road to be an alternative for the MacArthur Highway. The one-kilometer, two-lane service may be used by motorists to travel between Meycauayan and Venezuela.

“Aside from relieving traffic, this infrastructure is seen to enhance mobility and make economic activities in Meycauayan and nearby areas more efficient,” NLEX Corp. Vice President Donna Faylona-Marcelo said.

Present at the opening ceremony were Bulacan 4th District Representative Henry R. Villarica, Meycauayan City Mayor Linabelle Ruth R. Villarica, Meycauayan City Vice Mayor Josefina O. Violago, Toll Regulatory Board (TRB) Executive Director Alvin A. Carullo, DPWH District Engineer George Santos, and NLEX’ Ms. Faylona-Marcelo.

The new road aims “to provide motorists with a direct local route and help improve traffic flow, especially during rush hours at [the] Meycauayan Interchange.”

“The service road will improve the accessibility and address the increasing traffic volume in our city as we host many manufacturing and industrial companies,” Mr. Villarica said.

NLEX Corp. said the development is part of planned road network improvements after traffic along the east and west of Meycauayan increased “dramatically.”

Together with DPWH, NLEX Corp. is also working on a “more direct local route” for the 190-meter Marilao East Service Road which may be used by motorists to and from Meycauayan and Marilao.

NLEX Corp. is part of Metro Pacific Tollways Corp., the tollway unit of Metro Pacific Investments Corp. (MPIC). MPIC is one of three key Philippine units of Hong Kong-based First Pacific Co. Ltd., the others being Philex Mining Corp. and PLDT Inc.

Hastings Holdings, Inc., a unit of PLDT Beneficial Trust Fund subsidiary MediaQuest Holdings, Inc., has a majority stake in BusinessWorld through the Philippine Star Group, which it controls. — Keren Concepcion G. Valmonte
