The Tarlac–Nueva Ecija–Aurora Expressway is a planned 60-km,[1] 4-lane limited-access expressway in the Philippines that will begin from Tarlac City in the province of Tarlac up to the town of Baler in the province of Aurora. It will pass through the province of Nueva Ecija.

The project was revealed by Senator Edgardo Angara during the opening ceremony of the Aurora satellite province in Clark Freeport Zone in Angeles, Pampanga. The project, currently, is being readied by the government due to the increased tourist activities and economic potentials in the Aurora province.[2]

It is estimated that this project, when finished, will cut the travel time from Clark to Aurora from more than three hours to only 1 hour and 30 minutes.

This is the Phase 3 of the North Luzon West Expressway and also the extension of North Luzon Expressway and Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway from Tarlac to Aurora.
