Wednesday, December 6, 2017

Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Secretary Mark Villar announced the opening of the 10.10 km segment of Tarlac-Pangasinan-La Union Toll Expressway (TPLEX) spanning from Binalonan to Pozorrubio, Pangasinan this December 6.

“The additional 10 kilometer road would ease traffic and significantly reduce travel time from TarlacAP to Pozorrubio from 2 hours and 30 minutes to just 45 minutes,” DPWH Secretary Mark A. Villar noted.

The completion of the new segment will make TPLEX a 78.39-kilometer expressway, connecting provinces of Tarlac and Pangasinan.

Secretary Villar said its last section – the 10.92 kilometer Pozorrubio, Pangasinan to Rosario, La Union segment is set for completion in June 2019.

“Upon full completion, TPLEX would reduce travel time from Tarlac to Rosario, La Union from 3.5 Hours to just an hour, benefitting an average of 20,000 vehicles per day,” he noted.
