MALOLOS CITY, Bulacan, Philippines – There will be a special lane on the North Central Expressway (NLEX) and the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX) for athletes and officials participating in the 2019 Southeast Asian (SEA) Games.

According to NLEX Corporation President Luigi Bautista, a line will be set for the speedy movement of athletes and officials to various sporting venues in Central Luzon.

The 30th edition of the SEA Games will officially begin Saturday, 30 November 2019,  with the opening ceremony slated at the 55,000-seat Philippine Arena in the towns of Bocaue and Santa Maria in Bulacan.

It is adjacent to the northbound lane of the NLEX or in the direction of Pampanga.
The newly formed Ciudad de Victoria Interchange was opened last Sunday which will serve as a gateway into and out of the Philippine Arena.

Bautista, meanwhile, said that the construction of the Bamban Interchange in Tarlac is in a hurry. It is funded by the Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) to serve as a direct gateway into and out of New Clark City in Capas, Tarlac where the main venues of the SEA Games include the 20,000 seater Athletics Stadium and the 2,000 seater Aquatics Center.

The special lane will remain open on NLEX and SCTEX throughout the course of the SEA Games from Nov. 30 to December 11, 2019. (Cate Pallarco/IAMIGO/CNS)
