The Manila North Tollways Corp. yesterday broke ground for the 8-kilometer  road linking North Luzon Expressway with North Harbor in Manila.
The project estimated to cost P10 billion  will take three years to build. It will decongest traffic from the Manila Port Area to the Caloocan-Navotas-Valenzuela end of the expressway. 
The NLEX- Harbor link is part of the three phase North Expressway concession project the company is handling.
The first phase is the operation and maintenance of the 84-km NLEX that connects Metro Manila to Sta Ines, Mabalacat, Pampanga; and the maintenance of  the 8-km Subic-Tipo road segment.
The second phase is the construction, operation and maintenance of the 22-km northern portion of C-5 from UP in Quezon City to C-3 in Caloocan City.
The third phase is the  construction, operation and maintenance of the 65.8-km Subic arm that will connect the Subic Special Economic Zone to the NLEX
Rodrigo E. Franco MNTC president said construction of the Harbor link- NLEX to MacArthur in Valenzuela- will start next month and will be completed in a year. Right of way still has to be resolved for the longer portion from MacArthur Higway to C3 Road in Port Area, which will take two years.
Still another right of way problems will have to be resolved for the road connecting Mindanao Ave through Commonwealth and C5.
MPTC president and CEO Ramon S. Fernandez  said the NLEX  Harbor link is a very good alternative to C-3 and A. Bonifacio Avenue.
 Fernandez said , adding that motorists , especially truckers and haulers will benefit from the shorter time it will take to move merchandise from the port area.
