MANILA, Philippines - The Manila North Tollways Corp. (MNTC), a subsidiary of Metro Pacific Tollways Corp. (MPTC), is ready to undertake its next road project called NLEX C-5 Link that will connect the north to the south via C-5 , Rodrigo E. Franco, MNTC president announced Franco said the new project is an important section of the Manila North Expressway concession of MNTC. The 7.85-km NLEX C-5 Link will connect the NLEX main to C-5 through Mindanao Ave. Estimated cost is at P6.1 billion, inclusive of operating equipment and other facilities with commercial operations expected to begin by June 2016.

Ramon S. Fernandez, MPTC president, said the project “represents MPTC’s continuing commitment in investing in projects that will promote economic development in both the urban areas and in the countryside.”

Earlier, MNTC completed a 2.7 km expressway that links the NLEX main to Mindanao Avenue with the country’s largest cloverleaf interchange called Smart Connect Interchange as its main feature. 

When completed, NLEX C-5 Link will dramatically decongest traffic along Commonwealth Avenue and Quezon Avenue – the normal route of southbound motorists from northwest of Metro Manila. This will significantly cut down travel time and generate savings on fuel and vehicle wear and tear.
