         Describe on-going public consultation and disclosure:

        1. MNTC continues to.strengthen its alliance with various government units including
           the governors, congressmen and mayors, as well as, with transport and business
           groups. MNTC also regularly meets with Local Government Executives, national
           and local media, non-government organizations, and other government and
           private agencies to listen to their concerns and thus,. be prepared to respond to
           these concerns.

        2. The company also submits regular reports and project progress updates to the
           regional and local government groups of Central Luzon which include NEDA-(Il,
           DTI-Ill and the Presidential Commission on the Central Luzon Growth Corridor

        3. MNTC conducted consultations and dialogues with the communities and local.
           government units. These include education campaign on "Republic Act 2000 -
           Limited Access Facility Law" aimed at increasing the awareness of the
           communities, of the dangers of crossing the expressway. It also conducted
           emergency response plan and risk awareness program for residents in- three
           communities living underneath the Candaba Viaduct in Bulacan and Pampanga.

       4. It also closely worked with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources
           (DENR), Local Government Units (LGUs) and communities to maintain the good
           social and sustainable environmental condition of the NLEX. It launched the the
           "Greening the NLEX" program wherein it planted 20,000 trees on NLEX
           interchanges and other plantable areas of the 84-kilometer expressway. This.
          .year-long activity was pursued mainly through employee volunteerism and
          reaffirmed the company's 'commitment to promote a clean environment at the
           NLEX. .

       5. MNTC conducted NLEX Tours for 48 project directors and staff of the Asian
          Development Bank, and delegates of the 30' h APEC Transport Working Group. It
          also conducted Appreciation Parties for Central Luzon NGOs and Pampanga
          media. These activities strengthened relations with stakeholders and
          demonstrated corporate openness thus, earning their goodwill and trust.

                         -SAMPLING AND MEASUREMENT-
      (Section 5 of the Environmental, Safety and Health Annual Monitoring Report)

Ambient Air Quality

Ambient air sampling was conducted while the MNTP is in operation. Individual samples
and individual report for each sampling station were presented. The results were taken by
conducting a twenty four (24) sampling period for each station.

Ambient air quality parameters were analyzed and included Particulate Matter (PM10),
Oxides of Nitrogen (NO2),SulfurOxides (SO 2), Lead(Pb) and Ozone(0 3).

The sampling methodology and apparatuses used, location of sampling stations/points,
existing weather condition, existing LCAL activities during the actual sampling, results
and discussion and the summary and conclusion part were discussed in detailed below.

Methodology and apparatuses used

Particulate Matter (PM 10)

The High Volume Sampler equipment was used to measure the Particulate Matter
(PM10). The sampling equipment was positioned two (2) meters above ground level as
its required height. Flow rate is strictly monitored during the entire period to attain
measurement accuracy.

Ambient air is drawn for a period of 24 hours for each station through a pre-weigh filter by
means of a turbine blower. The filter paper was carefully placed inside the plastic
envelope container every sampling has completed and then brought to laboratory for
proper measurement. The filter is weighed before and after sampling so that the mass of
collected sample is determined. The concentration of the dust is computed as the mass
of collected particulates divided by the volume of air sampled and is expressed in
microgram/m3, or u g/m3.

Data collection was completed in seven (7) days for monitoring three stations.

Lead, Pb

The High Volume Sampler equipment was also used to collect air samples for measuring
Lead (Ph). The filter paper used to measure particulate matter was then brought to an
accredited laboratory for the analysis of Lead.

Sulfur Dioxide(S02) and Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2)

The Ambient Air sampling for SOx and NOx was done using a Kimoto Gas Bubbler air
sampling equipment. Grab sampling using one (1) hour averaging time was conducted
over a 24 hour period per station. This procedure ensures that air samples at various

times of the day are taken to establish the real situation of the ambient air quality of the

The Kimoto Gas Bubbler was also positioned at two (2) meters above the ground. For
each pre-identified stations four (4)-one hour ambient air sampling was conducted to
represent the 24 -hour period requirement. SO2 and NO2 laboratory prepared solutions
were used to collect air samples and brought to an accredited laboratory for analysis. To
preserve the samples during the entire sampling activity these samples were placed at
the ice chess container and sealed properly to control the temperature.

Location of sampling stationsfpoints

The pre-identified sampling stations outside of the toliways boundary were located
strategically at Sta, Ines, Mabalacat, Pampanga, Tabang, Guiguinto, Balaban, and
Balintawak, Quezon City.

    To determine the level of concentration of sulfur dioxide (SO 2) and nitrogen dioxide
    (1\102), ambient air is bubbled through an absorbing solution in the glass impingers using
    the AirChelt Gas Sampler. Total Suspended Particulate (TSP) and Lead (Pb) sampling
    was done using a Staplex high-Volume sampler with a filter paper weighed before and
    after sampling. A grab sampling method using a Gastec Piston Pump with corresponding
 Gastec detector tubes was used to collect the Carbon Monoxide (CO) and Hydrocarbon

 To quantify the S02, a measured , volume of air was bubbled through                   a solution of
 potassiumtetrachloromercurate (TOM). The complex was made to react with
 pararosaniline to form the intensely colored pararosalinic methyl sulfonic acid. The
 intensity of the color produced was measured by means of spectrophotometer. Nitrogen
 dioxide (NO2) samples were analyzed by Griess-Saltzman Method.

 Particulate matter (TSP) in ambient air was determined gravimetrically within one (1)
 hour of sampling period. The Lead (Pb) content of the sample was taken from the filter
 paper, digested with acid and analyzed by Atomic Absorption Spectophotometry, using
 air-acetylene flame.

 Carbon Monoxide (CO) and Hydrocarbon (HC) were directly measured on-site using a
 Gastec piston pump with corresponding gastec detector tubes for CO and HC as specified
in DEIN1R DAO 14. Sampling was done in conformity with the National Ambient Air
Quality Standards (NAAQS) of the Department of Environment and Natural. Resources
(DENR).                 .


Traffic/vehicular emissions are the primary sources of pollutants along the North Luzon
Expressway (NLEX) alignment from Baiintawak Cloverleaf to Sta. Ines, The measured
ambient concentrations of gaseous air pollutants (SO2 NO2, CO and HC) are within the
DENR limits. The TSP values are relatively high and exceeded DENR limit at six
sampling stations, namely Al, A2, A3, A4, A7 and AI5. These are due to
particulates/soot coming from exhaust of moving vehicles. The lead (Pb) concentrations
are within the DENR limit. Air quality monitoring results along the project site is
presented in Table 2. Photographs of the sampling activities are shown in Plates 1 to S.

            Q and N02.

           Results show that the ambient ground level concentrations of gaseous air
           contaminants are within the DENR limit for SO2 and NO 2. The concentration levels
           range from 20 to 40 pg/l\Tcm for S02 and from 16to 33 µg/I\Tcm for NO 2. These
           values are typical for a moderately clean atmosphere and are well within 1-hr DENR
           ambient standards of 340 µg/I\Tcm for S02 and 260 pg/Ncm for N0 2. The maximum
           observed level of S02 is 40 pg/Ncm about 11.8% of the DE1\TR standard of 340
           pgfNcm and 33 p.g/Ncm for NO 2, or about 12.7% of the allowable limit of 260

       Carbon Monoxide (CO)

           For carbon monoxide (CO), the measured levels ranged from below detectable limit
           to 15.0 ppm with an average CO concentration of 4.63 pgm for 16 stations. At
           sampling stations A3 (Balintawak Toll Plaza) and A12 (San Fernando Toll Plaza),
           CO levels were recorded at 10 ppm or more. The air quality index for CO with a
           concentration of 5 ppm is considered as fair. The observed values are still within
       the allowable DENR standard of 30 ppm. The maximum measured CO of 15 ppm is
       about 50.0% of the DENR standard of 30 ppm Hydrocarbon (HC).


       For hydrocarbon (HC), the measured levels ranged from 50 to 340 ppm.
       Hydrocarbon pollutant has no existing DENR standard for ambient air. This
       pollutant is the main source of smog and ground level of ozone when it interacts with
       nitrogen oxides.

Shown in Figures 1 to 4 are the graphical outputs of gaseous air pollutants monitored
along the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) from Balintawak Cloverleaf to Sta. Ines

         3.2 Total Suspended Particulates (TSP) and Lead (Pb)

         Total Suspended Particulates (TSP)

         The observed ambient concentrations of TSP exceeded the DENR limit of 300
          sg/Ncm at six sampling stations namely, (i) Al-Balintawak Cloverleaf Interchange,
         (ii) A2NovaIiches Flyover Area, (iii) A3-Balintawak Toll Plaza,            (iv) A4-Valenzuela
         Interchange, (v) A7-Bocaue Interchange and (vi) AI5-Dau Interchange. Observed
         TSP concentration levels range from as low as 107 to as high as 499 Lig/Ncm. The
         average TSP level for sixteen stations is 272.3 p.g/Ncm (about 90.8% of the DENR
         standard). The six sampling stations that exceeded the DENR limit has an-average
         level ranging from 310 to 499 Etg/Nem. The observed TSP level at station A3
         (Balintawak Toll Plaza) recorded the highest level of 499 gg/Ncm_ The TSP values
        that exceeded the limit mostly come from the emitted exhaust of accelerating
        vehicles adjacent to the sampling stations. The particulates are resuspended in air
        due to wind force or turbulence caused by vehicular movement along the NLEX
        alignment. The TSP levels are quite high at some congested stations and could be
        unhealthy for sensitive individuals. The maximum TSP level measured is about
        166% greater than the allowable DENR limit 300 p.g/Ncm.

        Lead (Pb)

        The measured lead concentrations ranged from 0.142 to 0.407 lag/Ncm, which are
        way below the allowable limit of 20 lig/Ncm. The kind and extent of all identifiable
        effects on public health or welfare that maybe expected in the presence of lead at 20
        µg/Ncm in the ambient air is not recognizable. The observed concentration is less
        than 1 gg/Ncm, this level is considered as a good air quality that no harmful effect is
        expected on human but long-term . exposure may cause health deterioration

(Ph), respectively along the North Luzon Expressway (ILEX) from Balintawak

 All required areas for reclamation and re-vegetation have been regulary monitored and
 maintained to prevent soil erosion and scouring along the river banks and slope areas.
 As of the end of year 2008, continuous reclamation and re-vegetation activity is being
 done. Environmental sustainability of the existing flora and fauna system is well
 maintained by the Operator.

As part of MNTC's environmental program, we had implemented the "Greening the
NLEX" program, which we planted about 20,000 trees along strategic and safe sections
of the expressway. MNTC employee volunteers planted the tree saplings at various
interchanges and slope embankments of the road way. We were also joined by various
groups including government agencies, local government units and other companies.

and increase safety awareness of the residents. This also includes the education
campaign for "RA2000- Limited Access Facility Act" in the prevention of pedestrians
crossing or walking inside the expressway.

 gram to further enhance air quality within
  the vicinity of the North Luzon Express-
 way (NLEX).
     "We are confident that we will hit our
  target of 20,000 trees by December, " said
 IVINTCp  'president and CEO Jose "Ping" de
 Jesus who has Ted IvINTC personnel in all
 tree-planting activities and other events
 under the company's corporate social re-
 sponsibility programs.
     Dubbed "Greening the NLEX," the
 program was launched in November last
 year with the objective of planting 20,000
 tree saplings along the entire stretch of
 the B4-kilometer tollway connecting
 Balintawali, Caloocan City to Sta. Ines in
 Pampanga by yearend.
     The program, which is being pursued
 mainly through employee vobtmteerism,
 is in keeping with the company's com-
 mitment to promote a clean environment
 at NLEX. It also involves strict monitor-
 ing of air and water quality in host com-
 munities of the expressway.
     To date, MNTC,, builder and conces-
 sionaire of the NLEX, has planted a total
 of 10,500 saplings, leaving 9,500 more to
 be planted over the next four months.
     The latest batch of GOO young trees was
planted recently at the Angeles Inter-
 change in Pampanga.
    Meanwhile, a scientific research group
has reported that the levels of air pollu-
tion at the NLEX remained within the al-
lowable limits set by the Department of
Environment and Natural Resources
    The environmental management and
monitoring report prepared by
ECOSYSCORP Inc stated that emissions
