Control Access Tollways in the Philippines
« on: January 05, 2014, 05:07:28 PM »

North Luzon Expressway

Philippines - SCTEx Joyride (SUBIC Route)

Philippines - SLEX / ACTEx TR3 Joyride (Calamba to Sto Tomas)

Philippines - SCTEx Joyride (TARLAC Route)

Manila Skyway Complete Northbound Joyride - 2012 AKA top deck of the Manila section of South Luzon Expressway

South Luzon Expressway (ACTEX-SLEX) Joyride 2012

South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) Joyride 2012 Bottom Deck of a Double Decker Freeway in Manila.

TPLEX - SCTEX (Southbound) Joyride 2014

Tarlac Pangasinan La Union Expressway or TPLEX is a road connecting Central Provinces to Northern Regions on Luzon Island. Just opened last October 2013 this video does not cover the whole stretch because still under construction. This segment covers Tarlac City to Paniqui. (North bound)

Well I noticed some freeways in the Philippines resemble EU style Motorways and some meet American freeways (State Route, US Route or Interstate) But all are privately owned by the Toll authorities.

"100 kph is boring and slow, it makes drivers fall asleep." 100 kph is equivalent (roughly) to 60 miles per hour. Boring, maybe. Slow, not a chance.

100 km/h 60 MPH United States conversion but 62 mph United Kingdom conversion seems to be a very low speed limit on the Philippine Expressway network due to most drivers trying to do 120-140 km/h like North Luzon Expressway EDSA Quezon City to Exit 66 San Fernando for US Naval Base Subic and Bataan Province via Bataan-Nueva Ecija road or the faster route via exit 85 Subic Clark Tarlac Expressway with the risk of being fined PHP 1,270 for going over 100 km/h (60 mph United States but 62 mph United Kingdom) speed limit taken from http://business.inquirer.net/58197/should-the-expressways%E2%80%99-speed-limit-be-increased  .

About US$25. It's a small fine.

Is it small to the average driver, though?

Also, is there really a difference between the length of a US mile and the length of a UK mile?  I'm aware that the UK pint is larger than the US pint (and, consequently, the UK quart, half-gallon, and gallon), but I really thought a mile was 5,280 feet in both the UK and the US.

Speed limits must (with rare exceptions) be multiples of 5 (US) and 10 (metric), which means that 62.14 gets rounded down to 60 in the US. Metric countries use 100 kph, which is 62.14 mph. The mile is the same in both the US and the UK.

In the Philippines, I suspect most drivers are still using cash primarily - when I was out there last week, paying by electronic tag or credit card was becoming an option in some areas, but isn't available at all gates.
