In case you missed it, the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) Harbor Link Segment 10 is finally open.

The opening of the elevated expressway was led by Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) secretary Mark Villar and inaugurated by President Rodrigo Duterte on Friday, March 1.

If you’re not familiar with the new expressway, the NLEX Harbor Link Segment 10 is composed of the 5.65-km elevated expressway traversing the NLEX from MacArthur Highway Karuhatan, Valenzuela City, passing through Malabon City and C3 Road, Caloocan City, and the 2.6-km section between C3 Road, Caloocan City and R10, Navotas City.

According to Villar, the newly opened segment will reduce the travel time from Valenzuela City to C3 Road, Caloocan from 1 hour to 5 minutes. That’s 55 minutes of the usual travel time!

Here’s a guide for the first time users of the NLEX Harbor Link Segment 10:
