ACCESS TO THE MUNICIPALITY

Paniqui is easily reached by land transportation, either by bus or private vehicles. The newly improved MacArthur Highway traverses it from North to South or vice-versa. In fact, the shortest route from Manila to Baguio and to the Ilocos Region passes this Municipality.

The Paniqui Welcome Ark, a visible and remarkable landmark, greets visitors as they enter the municipality.

Mac Arthur Highway cuts across the Poblacion. However, due to traffic congestion during peak hours, especially during market days, a diversion road was constructed outside the town.

Almost all the roads within the Poblacion area are already concreted. Similarly those main arteries linking the interior Barangays with the town proper are either asphalted or concreted thus providing easy access to the Poblacion for smooth transport of products services and mobility of people.

The construction of the Paniqui-Camiling road makes travel between Paniqui and the Western neighboring towns of Tarlac and Pangasinan easier via well-concreted roads and bridges. The western town of Nueva Ecija have likewise been linked with Paniqui through well-paved roads making trading and commerce faster and easier.
