Yay or nay? NLEX to be renamed MHDPEX?
The House of Representatives approved on third and final reading a bill that seeks to rename the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) to Marcelo H. Del Pilar Expressway.
Authored by Bulacan Rep. Jose Antonio Sy-Alvarado, House Bill No. 8958 was intended to “constantly remind” Filipinos of the courage and leadership of the national hero.
The 84-kilometer NLEX is one of the main road arteries of the country, serving around 280,000 vehicles a day.
The approved bill will be transmitted to the Senate for approval.
