SAN FERNANDO, Pampanga, Philippines — A four-lane, 30-kilometer expressway that will link the cities of Tarlac and Cabanatuan is 94 percent complete, the Department of Public Works and Highways reported yesterday.

The DPWH said the first 18 kilometers of the Central Luzon Link Expressway (CLLEX) would be initially opened.

“From the connection of Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway and Tarlac-Pangasinan-La Union Expressway in Balingcanaway in Tarlac City, the contract package covering the Tarlac and Rio Chico River Bridge sections with a total length of 10.5 kilometers were fully completed while construction of the 9.2 kilometer-Aliaga Section is 87 percent finished,” the DPWH said in a report.

The P11.8-billion Japan International Cooperation Agency-funded CLLEX will shorten travel time between Tarlac and Cabanatuan from 70 to 20 minutes.
