NLEx-SLEx link as next PPP project

Linking the two busiest expressways of the country, the North Luzon Expressway (NLEx) and the South Luzon Expressway (SLEx) is a big, ambitious and highly necessary project. Because between these two is the sprawling Metro Manila and all the heavy traffic associated with the metropolis. By-passing the big city via an elevated skyway therefore, will greatly reduce traffic below, at least temporarily, while facilitating the seamless movement of people, goods and services between the northern and southern provinces of Metro Manila.

While the original proponent, Metro Pacific Tollways Corp. (MPTC), has the advantage of producing the technical and financial specifications first, other construction firms will be allowed to compete with it and match or offer even a better deal for the government and the public. Whoever will win among the competing construction and tollway companies is a secondary concern for the public. Their primary concern is that such road link should be started soon and hence, can be used soon.
