A portion of the Central Luzon Link Expressway (CLLEX) Phase 1 Project from Tarlac City to Aliaga, Nueva Ecija will be opened to the motoring public on May 15, 2021, according to the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH).

Within the next 90 days, the project’s 18-kilometer (km) section—which starts from the connection of Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX) and Tarlac-Pangasinan-La Union Expressway (TPLEX) in Balingcanaway, Tarlac City up to the Aliaga Interchange in Nueva Ecija—will be substantially completed, Public Works Secretary Mark Villar said in a statement.

CLLEX Phase 1 is a four-lane, 30-km expressway that will cut travel time between the two large cities of Tarlac City and Cabanatuan City from 70 minutes to just 20 minutes, benefiting around 11,200 daily motorists and commuters and easing traffic on Daang Maharlika Highway by about 48%.

CLLEX Project Phase 1 begins from the connection of SCTEX and TPLEX in Balingcanaway, Tarlac City, and ends at the Pan-Philippine Highway (Daang Maharlika) in Caalibangbangan, Cabanatuan City.

As of February 15, the 4.1-km Tarlac Section and 6.4-km Rio Chico River Bridge Section—which includes a 1.5 km Rio Chico Viaduct—have been completed, while the 9.2-km Aliaga Section and 10.3-km Cabanatuan Section are 78.46% and 85.04% complete, respectively.

The Aliaga section includes construction of the 42-meter Guimba-Aliaga underpass bridge and Aliaga interchange.

The Cabanatuan Section includes the Cabanatuan and San Juan interchanges.

An additional 4.8-km component of the expressway project from the junction of Carmen-Cabanatuan Road is the Zaragoza Interchange section, which comprises a 2.8-km access free road and a 2-km interchange ramp that will cross over the embankment of CLLEX main expressway by an overpass.

The P11.8-billion expressway project is aimed at developing the provinces through connective infrastructure that will cut down travel time while also helping farmers in Nueva Ecija, the Philippines’ rice granary, to deliver their crops to the markets of Central Luzon and Metro Manila.
