“The NEDA Board has approved the Tarlac-Pangasinan-La Union Expressway or TPLEX Extension Project,” said NEDA director general Arsenio Balisacan in a recent briefing. “In accordance with the Investment Coordination Committee guidelines, this is the fastest unsolicited proposal approval, from its submission on March 17, 2023 to the approval today, June 2, 2023.”

The four-lane expressway project is said to cost P23.4 billion and will be implemented through a public-private partnership (PPP) under the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH). No specific timeline has been revealed just yet.
