PIA Press Release

Feature: SLEX - Gateway to the progressive south

San Fernando City, Pampanga (20 February) -- The South Luzon Expressway or SLEX, a P8.5 billion project consists of three phases called project toll roads (TRs) 1, 2 and 3, which began in 2006.

The project is under the Luzon Urban Beltway Super Region, a major program of President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.

The SLEX project covers the full rehabilitation of the Alabang Viaduct, the widening and upgrading of the expressway from Filinvest to Calamba, and the construction of a new road from Calamba to Sto. Tomas, Batangas.

The initial phase of TR2 works span between the Filinvest Interchange and San Pcdro and will effectively link up with the current TRI (Alabang viaduct) work site. Four additional lanes arc now being constructed on the highway median.

TR3 is the construction of a new four-lane toll road from Calamba to Sto. Tomas, Batangas. Once completed, the now 28- 'kilometer SLEX will total 36 kilometers from the Alabang viaduct to Sto. Tomas, Batangas and will link with the STAR (Southern Tagalog Arterial Road) expressway which leads to the Batangas international Port.

The rehabilitation and expansion of the expressway is expected to stimulate economic activity by enabling more exports to reach the port of Manila from Batangas and Laguna.

TR2 is 80 percent completed while only 13.98 percent portion of TR3 is completed. Total completion of the project is expected on December this year.

The South Luzon Tollway Corporation (SLTC) is a joint venture of the Philippine National Construction Corporation (PNCC) and MTD Manila Expressways, Inc. (MTDME). SLTC has been granted the authorization for the design, construction and financing of the South Luzon Expressway Rehabilitation and Upgrading Project by the Republic of the Philippines, as represented by the Toll Regulatory Board (TRB), through a Supplemental Toll Operation Agreement (STOA) entered into by the parties on February 2006. PNCC, a government owned and controlled corporation, is the holder of franchise to construct, operate and maintain the South Luzon Expressway. (PIA-Calabarzon) [top]
