The Tarlac-Pangasinan-La Union Expressway (TPLEX) has opened up to Gerona, bypassing Tarlac City, tengkgad! Will try it out this weekend. Will let you know how it goes.
I took it it this weekend (Nov. 8-10, 2013) and it was awesome! It must have cut travel time by an hour or something. I used to hate passing thru Tarlac because it was so long and traffic. The next time I pass the TPLEX it will probably reach past Carmen Rosales by then.
According to the Inquirer today, TPLEX has reached Carmen Rosales. Grrr, SM. April 14, 2014.
