A planned spur route from the San Simon interchange connecting to the existing Subic-Tipo Highway has been temporarily postponed, because of the on-going construction of an interconnection between the North Luzon Expressway and the Subic-Clark Expressway, the latter serving as a direct link between Subic and Clark. The interconnection is located at least 3 km north of Sta. Ines Exit.

It is currently being extended by 44 kilometers, starting from its current end in Mabalacat, Pampanga up to Tarlac City in Tarlac. Its extension is part of the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway Project. It may be extented up to Laoag City in Ilocos Norte and there are plans to have a spur route going to Baguio City to provide motorists going to the summer capital a fast and safe journey.

Originally controlled by the Philippine National Construction Corporation or PNCC, operation and maintenance of the NLEx was transferred in 2005 to the Manila North Tollways Corporation, a subsidiary of the Lopez Group of Companies. A major upgrade and rehabilitation has been completed in February 2005 and the road has now similar qualities as a modern French tollway. The main contractor of the rehabilitation work was Leighton Contractors Pty. Ltd (Australia) with Egis Projects, a company belonging to the French Groupe Egis as the main subcontractor for the toll, telecommunication and traffic management systems. To help maintain the safety and quality of the expressway, various rules are in effect, such as restricting the left lane to passing vehicles only and banning overloaded trucks. Please wikify (format) this article or section as suggested in the Guide to layout and the Manual of Style. ...


The tollway has two sections: an open section and a closed section. The open section (within Metro Manila) charges a flat toll based on vehicle class and is employed to reduce the number of toll barriers (and associated bottlenecks) within the metropolis. The closed section is distance-based, charging based on the class of vehicle and distance traveled. Class 1 vehicles can use an electronic toll collection system (called EC Tag) to reduce wait times and congestion at toll barriers. A prepaid magnetic card (the NLE Badge) is provided as an alternative payment for class 2 and 3 vehicles. Both systems connect to accounts that can be replenished in various ways. Travelers not using EC Tag or the NLE Badge on the closed system will instead be issued tickets describing tolls for the various exits. In order to save costs concerning toll barriers at exits, many exits on the NLEx are parclo interchanges, having exit and entrance ramps running alongside each other so that both may be serviced with a single toll barrier. For the capital city of the Philippines, see Manila. ... Many ETC systems use transponders like this one to electronically debit the accounts of registered cars without their stopping Transponder used in some Chilean expressways Electronic Toll Collection (ETC), an adaptation of military identification friend or foe technology, aims to eliminate the delay on toll roads. ... The parclo interchange (short for partial cloverleaf interchange) is a successor to the cloverleaf interchange. ...


The expressway was named as the Marcelo H. Del Pilar Super Highway after Marcelo H. Del Pilar, the editor of La Solidaridad. Marcelo Hilario Del Pilar Biography Biography Marcelo H. Del Pilar (1850-1896) was a Philippine revolutionary propagandist and satirist. ... La Solidaridad is the name of a society of Filipino intellectuals (ilustrados) in Spain who sought to create adequate representation for the Philippines in the Spanish Cortes (parliament). ...

    • All signage is in English, and are nearly identical to the "big green signs" (BGS) on American expressway, including white lettering on a green background, with the exit tab in the upper-right corner (distance signs even employ a font similar--if not identical--to the Caltrans font; all other signs employ a different font).
    • Like expressways in most American states, the NLEx uses a distance-based sequencing for numbering interchanges. Being a metric country, though, the system is kilometer-log rather than mile-log--exits are numbered according to the distance (in kilometers) from Rizal Park in Manila, which is designated as Kilometer Zero in Luzon.

Speed limit

80 km/h near Metro Manila, 100 km/h in rural areas, but 120 km/h is permitted.

Drainage Enhancement Program

The entire stretch of the expressway underwent another rehabilitation regarding its drainage systems. The expressway is known to be flooded during the rainy season and the goal of the program is to fix the drainage systems within the road to prevent flooding. A typical expressway in Santa Clara County, California. ...


Within this period, certain lanes of the road were closed to the traffic. This in turn caused massive traffic jams along the road and the speed limit on the construction sites were reduced from 80/100 km/h to 60 km/h.


The program started on February 12, 2007 and finished on October 7, 2007.

  • The road is a very famous spot for speeding and is frequently used by testers to test high speed cars only next to Metro Manila Skyway, even with several anti-speeding technologies along the road.

North Luzon Expressway - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1221 words)
The North Luzon Expressway, also known as the NLE or the NLEx, is a limited-access toll expressway that connects Metro Manila to the provinces of the Central Luzon region in the Philippines.
The expressway begins in Quezon City at a cloverleaf interchange with EDSA: a logical continuation of Andres Bonifacio Avenue.
The expressway ends at Mabalacat and merges with the MacArthur Highway, which continues northward into the rest of Central and Northern Luzon.
South Luzon Expressway - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (818 words)
The South Luzon Expressway (SLEx) or (SLE), also called South Superhighway, is a network of three expressways that connects Metro Manila with the provinces of the CALABARZON region in the Philippines.
Over the years, the areas surrounding the South Luzon Expressway, particularly southern Metro Manila and those areas within Laguna province, have seen massive industrialization and urbanization, especially with the influx of local and foreign investment into the area and the migration of Filipinos from different parts of the Philippines.
Phase 1 of the expressway project includes the replacement of the already shaky Alabang Viaduct, the rehabilitation and widening of the Alabang-Calamba segment, construction of the missing link(Calamba-Santo Tomas segment) and the integration of the Skyway, South Luzon Expressway and the STAR Expressway as a single toll road.
