North Luzon Express Way

North Luzon Express Way

The North Luzon Expressway project (NLEx) is a large road project, partly elevated, taking place North of Manila, the capital of the Philippines. The objective of the project is to provide a robust North-South road link on the Luzon Island. The total length of the project exceeds 80km.

For this project, Dextra supported contractor Leighton Philippinese with its popular
Bartec solution, popular rebar splicing method in South East Asia.

Bartec is very popular in Asia as it offers contractors a reliable way of connecting rebar. The unique sequence of the Bartec rebar preparation, which starts by cutting/enlarging the bar end, allow to uniformize the rebar before threading, making it reliable over time, evene between different lots of bars.

Between 2015 and 2017, Rebar couplers were used on the elevated segment of the orth Luzon Expressway project project, at the top of the bridge pylons. Couplers allowed the connection between the pylons and the head of the precast beams, which will ultimately support the road.

For this application alone, more than 78,000 rebar couplers were used, in diameters D28 & D36. Bartec range of diameters supported is one of the widest among the Dextra range, for more information, please refer to our Technical Datasheet available in the Download Section.
