Sec. Mark Villar Attends Opening of the 10.10-Kilometer Pozorrubio Segment of TPLEX

Department of Public Works and Highways Secretary Mark Villar confirmed to the media that the highly anticipated opening of the 10.10-kilometer Pozorrubio Segment of Tarlac-Pangasinan-La Union Toll Expressway (TPLEX) was successfully made last December 6, 2017.


The opening of the 10.10 kilometer Pozorrubio segment of the Tarlac-Pangasinan-La Union Toll Expressway (TPLEX) will reduce travel time from Tarlac to Pozorrubio, Pangasinan from 2 hours and 30 minutes to just 45 minutes.

According to Secretary Villar the Pozorrubio will connect the town of Binalonan in Pangasinan to the town of Pozorrubio also in Pangasinan.

The DPWH Secretary noted that instead of passing the Manila North Road, motorists from Binalonan TPLEX can now pass straight ahead to Pozorrubio exit going to Baguio City which is very useful especially during the Christmas season.

Sec. Villar Villar said, TPLEX’s last section, the 10.92-kilometer Pozorrubio to Rosario, La Union segment is set for completion in June 2019.

Once completed, TPLEX travel time from Tarlac to La Union from three-and-a half hours will be reduced for just one hour that will benefits an average of 20,000 vehicles per day.|

The Toll Regulatory Board has granted Toll Operation Permit to the Philippine Infrastructure Development Corp. for the maintenance and operation of the new segment last November 29.
