I love knowing that after decades, the PH government prioritized again the infrastructures that will mainly help us with our transportation throughout the country. The "Build, Build, Build" is the biggest initiative of Duterte's administration which has the most of the country's budget.
Connecting North and South Luzon
DPWH Secretary Mark Villar hopes that the new high standard highways will significantly ease the traffic and cut down travel time.

La Union to Bicol travel time will also be reduced from from 19 hours and 40 minutes to eight (8) hours and 15 minutes.
Before the end of the administration of President Rodrigo Duterte, travel time from Alabang to Quezon City will be reduced from over two hours to only 20 minutes.

NLEX Harbor Link Segment 10
DPWH Secretary Mark Villar said the newly-constructed road project will help decongest major thoroughfares in the National Capital Region and will also lessen travel time between Quezon City and Manila to just 15 to 20 minutes.
NLEX-SLEX Connector Road
It will extend the NLEX Southward from the end of Segment 10 in C3 Road in Caloocan to PUP Sta. Mesa in Manila and will connect to the Skyway Stage 3—a 4.8-kilometer, six-lane expressway which will connect Balintawak in Quezon City to Buendia in Makati.
SLEX Toll Road 4 & 5
The construction of this road is expected to be finished in 2022.

“The project will have an indicative length of approximately 220 kilometers and will be an alternative option of travel from Quezon and the Bicol provinces,” DPWH added.
It will also provide a safe and direct route to the provinces of Bicol since the original route traverses through the mountainside and other fragmentary roads.

So if you are going to drive from North to South (of Luzon) or vice versa, you can just take these following roads/highways:
- From La Union, take TPLEX
- Enter SCTEx
- Continue to NLEx
- Enter NLEX-SLEX Connector Road (Metro Manila SkyWay)
- Enter SLEx
- Continue to SLEx Toll Roads 4 and 5
- Enter Quezon-Bicol Expressway
- Exit to San Fernando, Camarines Sur
Once all these projects are completed Metro Manila’s main arteries like EDSA, C5, Quezon Avenue, Araneta Avenue and Quirino Avenue will be decongested by at least 130,000 vehicles daily.
