La Paz Interchange, parang similar sa Sta. Ines Exit ng NLEx. I think pagkatapos mag-construct diyan ng TLUEx, they should make a decent exit there.

San Miguel Interchange... parang di pa tapos ang ibang sections ahh... Anyway baka taken pa yan before the opening of SCTEx

When you pass the Clark-Tarlac Portion, you can see farmer's overpasses always.

I'm not too fond of expressways/motorways/freeways only having a name. Do they have road numbers for them too? (like pretty much elsewhere in the world)?

I am afraid they are not numbered here. The main roads usually have names of heroes and "heroes". And they sometimes change the names in tune with the political climate!

The expressways are usually named after the region they traverse (better), such as South Luzon Tollway.

there's bound to be a proposal to number them since it can get overwhelming.

here's a new proposed expressway: Tarlac-Pangasinan-La Union Expressway (TPLUEx).

This is annoying in China as well. On paper the highway system is assigned numbers, but they are always given their own names: the highway between Beijing and Tianjin/Tangu is called the Jingjintang Highway, the one between Guangzhou and Shenzhen is called the Guangshen Highway, etc.

It's confusing no matter how you put it.
