A Glimpse of the Upcoming TPLEX

If you have heard about the upcoming CALA or Cavite-Laguna Expressway supposedly connecting the traffic terrorized Cavite to Laguna and eventually to Tagaytay all the way towards Batangas, then you should also be introduced to TPLEX or the Tarlac-Pangasinan-La Union Expressway. Once completed, this will make it even faster to reach Baguio, Ilocos region, and other places up north as soon as you exit Metro Manila. You can then drive via NLEX or the North Luzon Expressway, followed by SCTEX or the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway, and soon TPLEX.

I’ve seen a glimpse of the expressway currently being constructed as it stretches over Agno River in Carmen, Rosales, Pangasinan and passes by the dike protected Lipay, a little barrio in the town of Villasis, Pangasinan. We’ve chanced upon it after dropping by the Minuyungan Butterfly Sanctuary (which deserves a different post) in the same barangay.

More information about this project is available through the WikiPedia TPLEX page. Speaking of which, this non-profit org is in need of financial support to continue its operation. If you have benefited from its information and wish to donate, you may do so here - donate to WikiPedia.

Despite issues with toll fee hikes in several expressways in the Philippines, particularly within Metro Manila, GMA, and Luzon area, I still love these extended highways for the convenience they offer. They help lessen if not ease heavy traffic flow and makes travelling faster for public transports and business people. So I’m sure that the upcoming TPLEX will benefit many as soon it’s open for the public.
