The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) appears to have made significant progress with the Central Luzon Link Expressway (CLLEX) project. The agency has shared that about a year after partially opening the new freeway to the public, the ongoing construction is now at 96% completion.

This 30km expressway will connect the existing Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX) and the Tarlac-Pangasinan-La Union Expressway (TPLEX) all the way to Cabanatuan City. The DPWH is expecting to finish an additional 7km segment leading up to San Juan and a 4km segment extending towards the Umangan-Julo Road at the Aliaga-Cabanatuan City boundary by March 2023.

“Using this toll-free high standard highway, palay crops and other products from Nueva Ecija—the Philippines’ rice granary—including those coming from Region 2 can reach the market centers in Metro Manila much faster and cheaper,” said DPWH undersecretary Emil Sadain.
