MANILA, Philippines — President Duterte yesterday vowed to continue supporting infrastructure development projects such as the North Luzon Expressway Harbor Link C3-R10 project that cuts travel time to only 10 minutes from Port Area in Manila to NLEX in Valenzuela City.
“This will improve the movement of cargo between the Port Area and NLEX by shortening the travel time from the usual one hour to 10 minutes. Wow. This new access road will not only stimulate commerce and lead to greater development (in) CAMANAVA, but will also reduce the incidence of road accidents due to better road pavement and major traffic management control,” he said, referring to the Caloocan, Malabon, Navotas and Valenzuela area.
Speaking during the inspection and presentation of the NLEX Harbor Link C3-R10 section, Duterte noted that improved mobility is “a strong indicator of progress in any society.”
“Let me assure you that this administration will continue to pursue road infrastructure development throughout the country to improve the productive capacity of our economy, create more jobs and higher incomes and strengthen our investment climate for sustainable growth,” Duterte said.
