NLEx-SLEx Connector Road Project

Project Brief
Implementing Agency

Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH)

Project Description

The project involves the construction and operation and maintenance (O&M) of an 8 km. 4-lane elevated expressway over the Philippine National Railway (PNR) right of way. It starts from C3 Road in Caloocan through Manila crossing Espana towards PUP, Sta. Mesa connecting Metro Manila Skyway Stage 3 (MMSS3). Once completed, the NLEX-SLEX Connector road is expected to decongest traffic in Metro Manila by providing an alternative to C-5 Road, Efipanio de los Santos Avenue (EDSA), and other major thoroughfares, and cut the travel time between NLEX and SLEX to 15-20 minutes which today takes more than an hour.
