What the TRB can guarantee is 100 percent support and assistance for the successful completion of this project,” Carullo said.Meanwhile, Marilao Mayor Ricardo Silvestre emphasized the need to open a more direct local route to and from these areas to ease the expanding traffic volume at the Meycauayan-Marilao Corridor.
The MOA also states that the use of the NLEX ROW for the construction of the project will be on a temporary basis pending the acquisition of lots for its own right of way by the DPWH Region 3 for the permanent Marilao East Service Road.Areas covered by the Marilao East Service Road project remain part of the NLEX as covered in the Limited Access Highway Act or the Republic Act (RA) No. 2000.Read more: Manila Bulletin News »
