LUNGSOD NG MALOLOS, Abril 12 (PIA) -- Target tapusin ng NLEX Corporation ang mga nilalakihang tollgate sa North Luzon Expressway o NLEX partikular na sa Meycauayan Exit, Mindanao, at sa Balintawak.


Ayon kay NLEX Corporation President Rodrigo Franco, tatapusin ngayong Mayo 2017 ang mga naturang proyekto.


Bukod sa pagdadagdag ng isang linya sa tollgate ng Meycauayan, sa southbound lane o paluwas ng Metro Manila, iniusog din ang nasabing tollgate palabas sa NLEX.


Bahagi ito ng kahilingan ng pamahalaang lungsod ng Meycauayan sa pamamagitan ni Mayor Henry Villarica.


Samantala, dinagdagan ng tatlong tollbooth ang tollgate sa Mindanao Avenue exit, northbound o papuntang Bulacan.


Ipinaliwanag ni Franco na dahil natutunan na nang maraming mga motorista na gamitin ang Mindanao Avenue exit upang makaiwas sa trapik sa Munoz at Balintawak, kinakailangang madagdagan ang bilang ng tollbooths sa bagong bahaging ito ng NLEX.


Ang Mindanao Avenue exit ay nagsisilbing alternatibong daan ng mga motoristang mula sa NLEX patungong silangang bahagi ng Quezon City gaya ng North Avenue, Visayas Avenue, Luzon Avenue, Commonwealth Avenue, Katipunan Avenue at C-5 Road.


Nakatayo na rin ang walong bagong tollbooths sa Balintawak Toll Plaza sa Caloocan.


Ito ang pambungad at pangunahing tollgate ng NLEX na unang sasalubong sa mga biyaheng Gitna at Hilagang Luzon.


Ang disenyo ng bagong walong tollbooths sa Balintawak ay katulad ng disenyong ginawa sa Bocaue Toll Plaza na binuksan noong 2016.


Umabot sa halagang 354.3 milyong piso ang ginugugol ng NLEX Corporation para sa ginagawang pagpapalaki ng mga tollgate.


Samantala, sisimulan naman sa Hunyo 2017 ang pagpapalaki ng tollgate ng Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway sa Tipo na bungad papasok sa Subic Bay Freeport Zone.


Mula sa kasalukuyang apat na tollgates, gagawin na itong anim sa halagang 22 milyong piso. (CLJD/SFV-PIA 3)
