The Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX)/Tarlac-Pangasinan-La Union Expressway (TPLEX) connection in Tarlac City, Tarlac up to San Juan, Aliaga, Nueva Ecija is where the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) hopes to operate a section of the expressway in Central Luzon by the first half of 2023.

Senior Undersecretary Emil Sadain stated in his report to Secretary Manuel Bonoan that the DPWH Unified Project Management Office – Roads Management Cluster 1 (DPWH UPMO RMC 1) is working to complete an additional 7-kilometer segment from the Guimba-Aliaga Road intersection to the San Juan Interchange, extending the currently open 18-kilometer section of the Central Luzon Link Expressway to 25 kilometers (CLLEX).

He remarked, “The DPWH UPMO RMC 1 team, the contractors, and the consultants have worked hard to overcome hurdles along the route, such as poor weather, right of way issues, difficulty in transporting building supplies, and Covid-19 influence that caused some delays.

The DPWH is building three interchanges at Zaragoza, Aliaga, and San Juan in addition to the four-lane, two-way expressway with a design speed of 100 km/h, which will enable drivers from secondary and provincial roads to access CLLEX.

After it is finished, the 30-kilometer CLLEX Project will make it easier for people to travel quickly, safely, comfortably, and reliably throughout Central Luzon. It will also serve as a crucial east-west link for Region 3’s expressway network, ensuring that traffic to and from Metro Manila can flow smoothly through NLEX, SCTEX, and TPLEX.

The project will reduce the typical travel time between Tarlac City and Cabanatuan City from 70 minutes to just 20 minutes, contributing to the government’s goal of reducing traffic congestion.

With financial support from the Japanese government provided through the Japan International Cooperation Agency, the project is one of the essential infrastructures.

It is a part of the Luzon Spine Expressway Network projects, which aim to build a high-quality highway network and cut travel time from the most northern region of Luzon, Ilocos, to the most southern section, Bicol, by more than 50%.

Sadain gave the project engineers Manuel Monfort, Juancho Hernandez, and Albert Manuel of the DPWH UPMO RMC 1 project supervision team instructions to devote more resources to the project and move it along more quickly during the inspection on December 19, 2022.

Along with the First and Second District Engineering Offices in Nueva Ecija, the DPWH UPMO is regularly processing right-of-way claims.

The delay in reimbursing or paying impacted property is a result of right-of-way claimants’ struggles to meet the documentation requirements and issues proving title, among other things.

The removal of encumbrances from land titles, payment of estate taxes for registered deceased proprietors, and changes to creditors’ names are the most frequent of these issues.
