NLEX Corporation is undertaking a P282.5 million upgrade of its electronic toll collection and traffic management systems, the company announced Sunday, February 26.
Specifically, the project covers the upgrade of various servers plus the installation of new radio frequency identification (RFID) antennas and speed cameras to improve toll plaza transactions.
Around 80 toll lanes at NLEX will be equipped with new antennas which will help facilitate more efficient RFID transactions.
A total of four speed cameras will be installed in both Tarlac and Subic-bound portions of SCTEX to track speeding vehicles.
NLEX has established an 80 kph maximum limit for trucks and buses and an 100 kph maximum for cars/SUVs.
Traffic officers use real-time data from the cameras to flag down those going beyond the maximum speed limits.
Various servers at NLEX-SCTEX will also be upgraded for improved performance and reliability.
“These enhancements are part of the company’s thrust to provide safer and more convenient journeys along with the drive for continuous innovation and customer service excellence,” says NLEX Corporation President and General Manager J. Luigi L. Bautista.
Over the past two years, the company has been doing system enhancements and equipping its facilities with new devices to improve its level of service.
Last year, close to 150 toll fare indicators, lane status indicators, traffic control gates, automatic vehicle classification devices, and loop detectors were upgraded at NLEX-SCTEX.
This waa on top of its software upgrade and system migration that boosted operational efficiency and enabled better customer experience at the toll plazas.
The company also upgraded the RFID system and network switches, realigned the RFID antennas, automatic license plate recognition (ALPR), and contactless card readers.
NLEX Corporation is a subsidiary of the Metro Pacific Tollways Corporation (MPTC), the toll road arm of the Metro Pacific Investments Corporation (MPIC).
