Smile! NLEX Corporation tollways now have 163 CCTV Cameras watching you

NLEX Corporation wants to intensify its traffic management along its tollways. With the addition of 12 new cameras, there is now a total of 163 CCTV cameras keeping tabs on traffic flow and motorists plying along the North Luzon Expressway, the North Luzon Expressway Connector, and the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway.

Installed in strategic locations along the expressways and toll plazas, the CCTV cameras support traffic and security teams. Monitoring and managing situations in real-time has been made easier and with more cameras installed, the Traffic Control Center (TCR) has more eyes to keep tabs on everyone taking the tollways. The TCR houses the expressways’ central traffic management system to help manage the traffic and allow the assigned personnel to deploy patrol crews and emergency response teams during incidents.

“As we expand our roads, we remain devoted in providing safe and convenient travel experience to the public by boosting our systems in traffic management. These additional cameras and message boards reinforce our main goal of providing safe and hassle-free mobility in all our expressways,” said NLEX Corporation President J. Luigi Bautista.

Along with the addition of CCTV cameras, 3 new Variable Message Signs (VMS) have also been put up along the Caloocan-Espana section of the NLEX Connector. That brings the total of installed VMS to 31 across the entire tollway network. These message boards are used for the dissemination of real-time traffic information and safety reminders to expressway users.

“We have always been committed in providing all-day and all-night assistance and services to the motoring public,” Bautista added.

As it stands, toll operation and technical support in all NLEX tollways are 24/7, as is the commitment of the Corporation to “provide accessible and reliable roads to the public at all times”. According to Bautista, most of the service facilities along the expressway are up 24 hours to serve as rest and refuel areas, while the company’s customer service hotline and its social media pages remain active to respond to customer queries.

So for all of you who frequent these expressways, smile! Big Brother is watching! It’s nice to know that the recently-approved toll fee price increase is going to upgrades such as this, don’t you think?
