NLEX Corp. said it spending P162 million to upgrade the Subic Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEx) toll system.
“These comprehensive and integrated enhancements are part of our goal to serve our motorists more efficiently. We always ensure that we continually upgrade our system and equipment to deliver convenient and reliable service to our motorists,” said NLEX president and general manager J. Luigi Bautista.
The project includes the upgrading of the radio frequency identification (RFID) system and network switches, the installation of RFID early detection feature, automatic license plate recognition (ALPR), and contactless card readers, and the replacement of toll system equipment such as the toll fare indicator, lane status indicator, traffic control gate (TCG), automatic vehicle classification (AVC) device, and loop detector.
NLEX expects to complete the SCTEx toll system upgrade within the year.
All toll lanes in SCTEX this year will be furnished with new toll system equipment once the replacement of 46 units of old equipment for 33 toll lanes is completed.
