Franco (second from right) and Mabalacat City vice mayor Christian Halili (third from left) lead a tree planting activity with MNTC and Mabalacat City officials and employees. The activity, dubbed “The Green Expressways,” is an extension of MNTC’s “Greening the NLEX” program which aims to plant trees in all plantable areas of the 90-km expressway to promote sustainable development and provide clean air at the NLEX. Also in photo are (left to right): City Councilors Gerald Aquino and Roland Peña, City Administrator Rosanno Paquia and MNTC vice president for corporate communication Marlene Ochoa. The tree planting project, in partnership with the city, was held at the Dolores, Mabalacat City Interchange. Around 1,500 Balacat and Mahogany saplings were planted by 400 volunteers from MNTC and Mabalacat City Hall as part of the company’s effort to replace the trees affected by the ongoing construction for the NLEX-SCTEX Integration.
