The project involves the 21.65-km extension of the NLEX from Mindanao Avenue, Quezon City to the C-3 (Circumferential Road 3) in Caloocan City and to Commonwealth Avenue in Quezon City.
A) SEGMENT 8.2 – is a proposed 8.35-kms 4-lane divided expressway from Segment 8.1 at Mindanao Avenue to Republic Avenue turning right to Luzon Avenue up to Commonwealth in Quezon City.
B) SEGMENT 10 - is an 8.18-km. elevated expressway connecting McArthur Highway, Valenzuela and R-10, Navotas City that will utilize the existing PNR railroad tracks and will traverse the C-3 Road in Caloocan City and Navotas City.
Number of Lanes
McArthur Highway, Valenzuela to C-3 Road, Caloocan City
6 (3 in both directions)
C-3 Road, Caloocan City to R-10, Navotas City (Spur Link)
4 (2 in both directions)
C) SEGMENT 9 - is a 2.42-km. 4-lane (2x2) that connects NLEX Mindanao Avenue Link (Segment 8.1) at the SMART Connect Interchange to McArthur Highway in Valenzuela City.
D) SEGMENT 8.1 - a 2.7-km expressway connecting the NLEX, at its Valenzuela City junction, to Mindanao Avenue in Quezon City. A major component is the Cloverleaf SMART Connect Interchange crossing the main expressway. It provided motorists with alternative entry and exit ramps to the NLEX.
- Reduce travel time from Mindanao Avenue going to Commonwealth Avenue from 45 minutes to 10 minutes.
- Will benefit 45,000 motorists per day
This project aims to:
- decongest Metro Manila by providing access to the NLEX without passing through EDSA or the Balintawak Toll Plaza;
- improve the movement of cargo from the Port of Manila by providing a direct connection between R10 (Radial Road 10) and NLEX; and
- reduce the travel time from NLEX Valenzuela to R10 from 23 to 11 minutes via Balintawak-EDSA Monumento, and from 26 to 13 minutes via Balintawak-A. Bonifacio/C3
