The North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) Corporation, a subsidiary of Metro Pacific Tollways Corporation (MPTC) — a company owned by Metro Pacific Investments Corporation, will be doing some safety repairs on the northbound of Candaba Viaduct. Particularly, a portion of the left most lane will be close down (approximately 200-meter long) near the end of the Candaba Viaduct. It will not be accessible for ten days. Repairs kicked off last Friday, June 1st and is expected to be finished on June 10.

Apart from the lane closure at the Candaba Viaduct, NLEX Corporation added that it will also be closing a 2-kilometer long of the northbound lane of the bridge for 8-hours to speed up the road restoration. The close down of the northbound bridge will take effect on the following schedules – June 5 from 10 P.M. to 6. A.M. the next day, and June 6 from 10 P.M. to 6. A.M. the following day.

Traffic and safety apparatuses will be placed at the said area for further guidance to the motorists of the on-going repairs. As for the 2KM road closure on the northbound Candaba Viaduct, a traffic counterflow scheme will be implemented for the northbound travelers.

The NLEX Corporation also added that other maintenance roadworks are slated to take place on both NLEX and Subic–Clark–Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX) starting from June 4 until 7th. The affected part of the NLEX include portions of Sta. Ines Interchange, Angeles Interchange, Mexico Interchange, Dau Interchange and even segments of the southbound Candaba Viaduct. Meanwhile in SCTEX, sections of the recently opened Mabalacat exit ramp going to NLEX – both from Subic and Tarlac – and the exit ramp going to NLEX southbound are also scheduled for maintenance works.

Expect some delays in those portions of NLEX and SCTEX covered by roadworks as well as fragment lane closures to be executed in affected areas. —
