I've noticed in other (colder) countries the asphalt is very black and looks very new unlike the ones we have here or even in any part of the country na medyo white or grayish na after a few months..

Could it be because of dust and mud from the vehicles? Probably because we're a tropical country?

Meron din actually spaghetti wires in richer countries. I remember seeing photos of spaghetti wires in Tokyo, LA, SanFrancisco, etc.

I was thinking, is it the job of the government or the private utility firms to bury the wires underground?

Maybe the government should enact a law requiring utility firms to bury all wires underground.. For example, PLDT already buries some of its wires underground and so with Globe, etc. After all mayaman naman cguro ang Meralco ang other electric firms..

while I was in San Fernando yesterday, I saw support columns being constructed in Pulilan (near Candaba viaduct), and not just support columns since they are aligned and the construction goes a long way, is this it?

Regarding those spaghetti wires, it's the engineering and city planning office that oversees these eyesores. I only wish that if the utility companies don't have budget for underground lines at the moment, then they should see to it that these wires and cables are well-organized and not just being spliced and connected anywhere they want. I've seen a lot of them being spliced right in the middle of the main line instead of from the pole. I'm sure there are already existing laws and ordinances on these utility wires but i don't think they are being strictly implemented or maybe...hmmm...you know.

malamang hindi ito iyon kasi Pulilan na iyon, sa Plaridel ang usapan eh.

Isa pa, kung ang interchange niyan sa NLEx ay lampas Sta. Rita exit, mapupwersa ang MNTC na palawakin ang lanes ng NLEx mula Santa Rita hanggang sa interchange nito ng 6 lanes para kayanin nito yung mga sasakyan na papuntang Northeaster Luzon. Kaya nga 6 lanes ang mula Tabang hanggang Santa Rita upang kayanin ng NLEx yung mga sasakyan na papuntang Cagayan.

lane marking also makes the road look organized.

Tarlac-La Union Expressway to start construction
The travel between Central and Northern Luzon will soon be halved as a multi-billion expressway project goes underway this year.

In a briefing, the Private Infra Dev. Corp. (PIDC), the project proponent of the 88.5-kilometer expressway, said they will begin Tarlac-La Union Toll Expressway Project in September.

The ten-member consortium, composed of big players in local construction business will oversee the design, construction, financing and operations of the project.

Construction giants First Balfour, Inc. and D.M. Consunji, Inc., are the biggest shareholders in PIDC with 34% stake each.

The P15.18-billion Tarlac-La Union expressway extending from La Paz, Tarlac to Rosario, La Union, will be done through a Build-Transfer-Operate (BOT) scheme.

Following the project’s completion, the land title will be transferred to the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH). After which, a toll operating agreement will be signed for a 35-year concession contract that can be extended for 15 years.

Of the total P15.18 billion project cost, 57% or P8.59 billion will be financed by loans, 24% or P3.68 billion will come as an equity investment and 19% or P2.91 billion will provided by the government through the DPWH. The government subsidy will finance the right-of-way acquisition.

Tarlac-La Union Expressway will have eight interchanges, nine toll plazas, two operating buildings, 20 bridges, two viaducts 26 overpasses and three farm crossings.

DPWH Secretary Manuel M. Bonoan said the project is critical to enhance the economic development in the North.

"With good transportation system, the economic development will follow," he said, adding that with reduced travel time, goods and services will easily be transported.

Mr. Bonoan said the expressway will halve travel time between Manila to Baguio in an average speed of 80 km per hour.

PDIC yesterday invited local and foreign banks, as well as investment houses to participate in the financing of the expressway development.

Start of partial operations will be on January 2010 for Tarlac-Carmen section, January 2011 for Carmen-Urdaneta and March 2013 for Urdaneta-Rosario stretch. — Marian Grace S. Ramos

Keep your fingers crossed, hindi naman sinabi ang number of lanes niyan. Hope na ni-revise nila ang plano at gawin na itong 4 lanes... My God!

Palagay ko initially e two lanes lang muna para pag construct ng other lanes e ginagamit na yan. Parang yung regular two lane highway di ba one lane muna for maybe 1k stretch tapos yung kabilang lane naman later.
