Diversion road linking Tarlac City, New Clark City finished by 2022
The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) said the Tarlac City Southwest Diversion Road linking Tarlac City and New Clark City is expected to be finished by next year.
In a statement, the DPWH said the road will provide motorists “with a smooth travel, safer roads, and a quicker trip to and from Tarlac City.”
Officials said the diversion road being constructed by the Tarlac first district engineering office would connect Tarlac’s capital to New Clark City in Capas, Tarlac, bypassing the 24.1-kilometer Manila North Road.
The project is currently on its second phase of the multi-year project.
The road concreting, widening and rehabilitation of the Tarlac City Southwest Diversion Road began in 2020.
“The existing unpaved Tibag-Armenia via Tibagan Balanti Diversion Road is currently being improved to serve as an alternate road to New Clark City, and a shorter way to access Tarlac City to the adjacent provinces instead of driving via the Manila North Road,” district engineer Erelina Santos said.
“The bypass road starts at the Tarlac City-San Jose via Tibag-Burgos Road and ends at the Capas-San Jose-Mayantoc-Malacampa Road,” she added.
