Senator Sherwin Gatchalian is seeking a review of the government’s concession deal with the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) Corp. over complaints in the implementation of the contactless RFID system in toll booths.
He plans to file resolution following the call out made by his brother, Valenzuela City mayor Rex Gatchalian, against the toll system operators.
The senator also lamented the Toll Regulatory Board (TRB) inaction “in the wake of numerous complaints from motorists of long queues and traffic congestion.”
“Such is an utter display of callousness to the plight of the motorists who, because of technical glitches and apparent inaction of concerned authorities, get stuck in traffic for hours,” he said in a statement.
“Toll road operators have the temerity to exact fees from the public without any commensurate services. It’s deplorable to say the least.”
