    Default Tarlac-Pangasinan-La Union Expressway (TPLEx)

    Even before I first read about the official start of its construction (20100401) which they say should last for 1.5 years, I have been intrigued with the "To TPLEx Project" signage at the Carmen, Rosales, Pangasinan junction (just before the bridge) for awhile.
    So during my last days off, I tried to go through the more easternly roads, avoiding the MacArthur highway and saw some construction areas where I think would be where the TPLEx would past through.
    Here's my speculation as to how TPLEx would look like. Unfortunately to date, I don't know how it would connect up to Rosario, La Union yet. I do think they're probably following the old rail road tracks in the area.

    From DPWH:



    it looks like the expressway will cross Mc Arthur Hi-way somewhere just after downtown Urdaneta, and from there it would proceed to Rosario, La Union where it connects to the existing Marcos Hi-way

    i saw that "TPLex" sign in Rosales too

    when finished, I'd expect Manila-to-Baguio trip would take less than 3 hours

    well, I guess I my speculations of those construction sites sprouting in the country side was correct. hehe.
    3 hours? well, that's I guess if you drive from KP0 to KP240 at a constant 80kph++. hehe.

    theres another expressway being started...NELEX - north east luzon expressway. from commonwealth balara to tuguegarao, cagayan passing thru norzagaray, san rafael bulacan to cabanatuan.
    the expressway will be integrated with rainwater drainage.
    i think the road widening in katipunan-balara is part of this.

    really appreciate the information. I was beginning to think this new road was a figment of the planners imagination. As a regular driver from Baguio to Manila, I look forward to plotting it when it is completed!! Will make my life a bit easier.

    More exciting to plot it before it's completed.
