The C3-R10 segment of the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) Harbor Link is set to be operational on June 15, 2020. It was expected to be completed way back in March 2020 but the construction was temporarily suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We are glad to announce that another flagship project, the C3-R10 Section of NLEX Harbor Link, is now back on track and is expected to be completed by June 15,” said Mark Villar, Secretary of Public Works.

Once the new road is up and running, the travel time from Quezon City to Manila is expected to be cut down from 2 hours to 10 minutes only. The C3-R10 section is said to better accommodate the traffic movement between the Luzon provinces and the major areas of Metro Manila.
