Well, if you're new to an area, especially, in the United States, you have to memorize all the highway numbers just to know where you're going. Whereas, Guangshen Highway you go "Oh! Guangzhou - Shenzhen!" or Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway, which explains itself.

How wonderful for The Philippines if there's a bridge connecting Luzon and Mindanao

Was there any project about the bridge to connect Luzon and Mindanao???

ROSALES, Pangasinan, Feb. 28 (PNA) -- President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo will lead the groundbreaking tomorrow (Monday, March 1) of the country’s next expressway project: the 88-kilometer, four-lane Tarlac-Pangasinan-La Union Expressway (TPLEX) to be built at a cost of P16.88-billion

TPLEX will extend modern expressway travel to Northern Luzon and nearer to Baguio City from Tarlac, the farthest point traversed by the merging the SCTEX (Subic, Clark Tarlac Exchange) at Tarlac and the NLEX (North Luzon Expressway).

Rosario, La Union is the main entry point to Baguio City.

To be built by the Department of Public Works and Highways, TPLEX will be transferred soon after completion to the private sector which will manage the new road under the private public partnership program (PPP).

The new expressway is seen to spur economic development in Regions 1, 2, 3 and the Cordillera Autonomous Region.

The TPLEX is one of President Arroyo’s strategic projects in the North Luzon Agribusiness Quadrangle Super Region, one of the five growth corridors she laid out in her 2006 Super Region development strategy.

TPLEX is expected to cut travel time from Tarlac to La Union and Baguio City by two hours. Areas to be traversed are the towns of Victoria, Gerona, Paniqui and Moncada, all in Tarlac; Carmen, Urdaneta, Binalonan, Pozzorubio and Sison, all in Pangasinan.

Phase 1 of the TPLEX will be two lanes initially while Phase 2 will be expanded to four lanes when vehicle load target reaches 25,000 per day.

As of Feb. 25, 2010, P438 million has been released by government for right of way acquisitions and detailed engineering plans. (PNA)

I Really hate it when they cut the mountain instead of making a tunnel to pass it.

Though it was more expensive but the environmental impact priceless.


Imagine a lot of animals used to cross the mountains and now what?



I just hope that we pass a legislation that will put a standard in making highway more environment friendly and less impact to the natural habitat of that area.

It would take a long time for that to materialize if there are plans because I think there's about 10+islands to connect for this to be possible; spanning tens of kilometers in-between islands.

It's still possible though to drive from Luzon to Mindanao via the ro-ro (roll on-roll off) ferries; which transports vehicles when making island crossings.

Below is the San Juanico bridge, the country's longest inter-island bridge at 2.16m length connecting two central Philippine islands over a narrow strait (from Google search):
