Travel time from Pozorrubio to Rosario will be reduced to one hour
The 11-kilometer Pozorrubio, Pangasinan to Rosario, La Union Section will reduce the travel time from Tarlac to Rosario by an hour from the current 3.5 hours.
With the completion of the last portion of TPLEX, traveling to and from Northern Luzon will now be easy.
According to DPWH Secretary Mark Villar, motorists from Rosario rotunda that are bound to Baguio will now have three route options of taking Marcos Highway or Kennon Road or the Asin Nangalisan Road.
The PHP24-billion four (4) lane toll road project implemented by DPWH involves the design, financing, construction, operation, and maintenance by the private sector.
San Miguel Corporation’s Private Infra Dev Corporation holds the concession for TPLEX which is integrated with Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEx) and the North Luzon Expressway (NLEx) connecting the central and northern Luzon provinces to Manila and beyond.
The entire length of the tollway have nine (9)exits: La Paz in Tarlac City, Victoria, Gerona, Paniqui and Moncada in Tarlac; Rosales, Urdaneta City and Pozzorrubio in Pangasinan, and Rosario in La Union.
