NLEX Corporation recently inaugurated the NLEX Road Traffic Safety (RTS) Hub and Park in Dau, Mabalacat, Pampanga to further strengthen the company’s road safety advocacy campaign.
With its mission of providing safe travel to their stakeholders and continuously minimizing the number of road-related incidents, the tollway company has partnered with several organizations and government agencies like UNICEF, LTO, TRB, UP-NCTS, Imagine Law and local government units in pursuing various road safety projects and programs such as the new RTS Hub & Park.
This facility, which used to be the old NLEX Dau Toll Supervision Building, was converted to provide an avenue for safety training seminars and to allow NLEX’s key stakeholders to be exposed to and educated on safe road practices and responsible driving. Equipped with road safety gear, traffic safety devices and learning materials, guests learn about road discipline in an experiential manner.
“This RTS Hub and Park for me is a symbol of hope. It is both an image and representation of our aspiration and commitment to elevate road safety in our expressway network. I am glad that we were able to transform this asset into something more valuable for our road safety advocacy,” said NLEX Corporation President and General Manager, J. Luigi L. Bautista.
The opening ceremony was led by NLEX President and GM J. Luigi Bautista, LTO NCR Regional Director Roque Versoza III, TRB Deputy OIC of Regulation Division Joz Ordillano, Imagine Law’s Atty. Daphne Marcelo, UP NCTS Engr. Aileen Mappala and MPTC Chief Corporate Governance & Risk Officer Atty. Cynthia Casiño.
Elementary students from EPZA Resettlement Elementary School in Angeles, Pampanga were also among the first guests of NLEX Corporation’s first Road Traffic Safety Hub and Park (RTS Hub and Park). They were exposed to road safety trainings and were taught about road discipline through fun and engaging activities.
NLEX Corporation is a subsidiary of the Metro Pacific Tollways Corporation (MPTC), the toll road arm of the Metro Pacific Investments Corporation (MPIC).
