Manila to Baguio in 3 Hours? It’s Possible!

Are you itching to travel somewhere to chill and relax? Have you always wanted to go to Baguio but travelling for 6-8 hours is not really your thing? Then the Pozorrubio opening may just be what you are waiting for.

The Pozorrubio

The Pangasinan toll exit along TPLEX (Tarlac-Pangasinan-La Union Expressway) was opened and promises the possibility of travelling from Manila to Baguio in three hours. Tim Orbos, the Department of Transportation (DOTr) undersecretary relayed this good news.

The undersecretary posted on his Facebook a photo of the said road. He shared that it took them 2 hours from Balintawak to where they were then. He also added that they are 45 minutes away from Baguio at that point.

"Baguio - almost there! Opening today the Pozurrubio Pangasinan Toll Exit. It took us only two hours from Balintawak. Baguio a mere 45 minutes away from where we are. Build, Build, Build!" - Tim Orbos

Build, Build, Build program

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte launched a program called Build Build Build which longs to provide more employment through infrastructure growth for the next few years. The Pozurrubio exit is a part of the program.

“Key infrastructure projects under the BBB Program include: (a) the Subic-Clark Railway; (b) the North-South railway projects connecting Los Baños, Laguna to Tutuban, Manila and Clark Freeport in Pampanga; and (c) a 1,500-hectare industrial park in Clark, Pampanga; and (d) an expanded Clark International Airport also in Pampanga.”

“Other projects were: (a) four energy facilities; (b) 10 water resource projects and irrigation systems; (c) five flood control facilities; and (d) three redevelopment programs.”
