NLEX-SCTEX to implement Express Payment Scheme on Holy Week

The North Luzon Expressway and the Subic Clark Tarlac Expressway will implement an express payment program, the 'Holy Week Express Lane'.

The program is intended for Class 1 vehicles traveling to the North this Holy Week. Class 1 vehicles include cars, vans and jeepneys. The program will start at 2 pm of April 4 (Holy Wednesday) and will end at 5pm of April 5 (Maundy Thursday). It seeks to shorten transaction time in busy plazas like Dau-Mabalacat in Pampanga, Subic-Tipo and the Tarlac exits in SCTEX.

Under this program a Class 1 motorist exiting Dau and Subic-Tipo or Tarlac via SCTEX may already pay his/her toll fees in full as he/she passes the Balintawak or Mindanao Avenue Toll Plazas. Motorists exiting Dau will pay a total toll fee amounting to P218.00 while motorists exiting Subic via SCTEX will pay P408.00 and motorists exiting Tarlac via SCTEX will pay P322.00. Designated Express Lanes are located at the left side of the Toll Plazas. Motorists intending to use the Express Lanes should keep left as they approach the toll plazas for their entry and exit. This program aims to alleviate queuing at the Toll Plazas especially during peak hours of the Holy Week exodus. Have a safe trip everyone!
