The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) announced that the new Tambobong Interchange along the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) is now open.
DPWH said that the new interchange will offer another alternative for commuters at Bocaue Interchange going to the municipalities of Sta. Maria, Norzagaray, Angat, and Pandi in the eastern portion of Bulacan province.
“The completion of this new route is vital to fulfilling our goal of improving roads leading to growth corridors,” DPWH Sec. Mark Villar said.
“We are delighted to let our commuters know that we are able to provide traffic congestion relief and reduce travel time between the NLEX and eastern Bulacan towns,” Villar added.
The interchange, a partnership between DPWH and NLEX Corporation, features a two-lane southbound entry, a two-lane northbound entry, and a three-lane northbound exit.
It also has three radio frequency identification (RFID) lanes to encourage cashless and faster transactions.
NLEX Corporation President and General Manager J. Luigi Bautista expects that the new interchange will enhance mobility within the Bulacan road network and help alleviate the heavy traffic situation at the Bocaue Interchange
Bulacan 2nd District Rep. Gavini Pancho also believes that the Tambobong Interchange would open more opportunities for the province, and its people.
