Construction work has started for the 77km Pangasinan Link Expressway (PLEx) in the Philippines. The project is expected to cost US$603.5 million.

The project is being carried out under the PPP Model by San Miguel Corporation (SMC) and the route will feature two lanes in either direction. The new expressway will provide a more efficient connection between the New Manila International Airport located in Bulacan Province and the Tarlac-Pangasinan-La Union Expressway.

The work is being carried out in two stages and the completion date for the project will depend on the timeline for the acquisition of the land along the alignment. However, estimates suggest that the project will take four years to complete.

The work on the PLEx will provide better connectivity for the Pangasinan area, helping to improve journey times and boost the local economy.
