Franco (left) give Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Secretary Rogelio Singson an update on the the newly-opened NLEX Harbor Link Segment 9 in Valenzuela City.
Segment 9, a 2.4-km toll road that connects NLEX to MacArthur Highway in Karuhatan, Valenzuela City, is expected to ease the traffic in major thoroughfares and offers an alternate access to Caloocan, Malabon, Navotas, Valenzuela (CAMANAVA) and Manila Port Area through NLEX.
“Aside from decongesting major roads, Segment 9 delivers a more efficient cargo distribution that greatly benefits the industrial facilities in CAMANAVA area,” Franco said.
Segment 9 has served some 25,000 vehicles since it opened last March 19 as more and more motorists discover the convenience and shorter travel times the new expressway makes possible.
