Highways in the Philippines

The South Luzon Expressway (SLE or SLEx), which is formerly called the South Superhighway (SSH) and Manila South Expressway (MSEX), and officially known as Radial Road 3 or R-3, is a network of two expressways that connects Metro Manila to the provinces of the CALABARZON region in the Philippines. The first expressway is the Metro Manila Skyway System, operated jointly by the Skyway Operation and Management Corporation (SomCo) and Citra Metro Manila Tollways Corporation (CMMTC). The second expressway, the South Luzon Tollway or Alabang-Calamba-Sto.Tomas Expressway (ACTEX), is jointly operated by the South Luzon Tollway Corporation, a joint venture of the PNCC and the SMC-backed Citra group of Indonesia (the group where MTD Capital Berhad, the original partner, sold their shares) via the Manila Toll Expressway Systems, Inc. (MATES).

The expressway starts in Manila's Paco District at President Elpidio Quirino Avenue and passes through the following cities and municipalities: Manila, Makati, Pasay, Parañaque, Taguig and Muntinlupa in Metro Manila, San Pedro and Biñan in Laguna, Carmona in Cavite, then transverses again to Biñan, Santa Rosa, Cabuyao and Calamba in Laguna and ends in Santo Tomas in Batangas.

In 2006, the South Luzon Tollway segment underwent rehabilitation through the SLEX Upgrading and Rehabilitation Project, which rehabilitates and expands the Alabang Viaduct as well as the road from Alabang to Calamba, and eventually connect the expressway to the Southern Tagalog Arterial Road to Santo Tomas, Batangas.

Route description[edit]

South Luzon Expressway looking southbound from Susana Heights

The South Luzon Expressway network currently cuts southwards from the City of Manila up to the provinces of Laguna, Cavite, Batangas. In the future, it will run towards Quezon, Camarines Sur, Albay and Sorsogon as part of its expansion plans. It is composed of the Metro Manila Skyway System and the South Luzon Tollway/Alabang-Calamba-Santo Tomas Expressway, which contains portions of the Pres. Sergio Osmeña Sr. Highway and Dr. Jose P. Rizal Highway.

Pres. Sergio Osmeña Sr. Highway[edit]

The Pres. Sergio Osmeña Sr. Highway segment starts from an intersection at Quirino Avenue in Paco, Manila and goes straight up to Alabang in Muntinlupa. The part of Osmeña Highway which passes through Manila, Makati, and Pasay is a toll-free highway before reaching the Nichols Toll Plaza from which the tolled expressway begins. Heading southward, the expressway has exits in Merville Subdivision and Bicutan in Parañaque, and Sucat, Alabang, and Filinvest in Muntinlupa. This segment was formerly known as South Superhighway before Republic Act 6760 was passed, naming it after former President Sergio Osmeña.[1] This highway may be called "local lanes" of the Expressway within Metro Manila.

Metro Manila Skyway[edit]

Main article: Metro Manila Skyway

Due to increasing vehicles congesting on the SLEX within Metro Manila, the Metro Manila Skyway was constructed as a direct, non-stop route from Alabang–Zapote Road in Muntinlupa to Gil Puyat Avenue in Makati, bypassing many of the interchanges of the SLEX, such as those with C-5 Road near Fort Bonifacio and EDSA. The Skyway and the portion of the Osmeña Highway below forms the Skyway System, which is managed by the Skyway Operations and Maintenance Corporation (SOMCo.), which succeeded the PNCC Skyway Corporation in 2007.[3] This highway might be called "express lanes" of the Expressway within Metro Manila.

Dr. Jose P. Rizal Highway[edit]

From Kilometer 28.387 at San Pedro, Laguna southwards,[2] the Dr. Jose P. Rizal Highway segment runs through the province of Laguna, as well as a segment of Carmona at Cavite province before continuing back to Laguna from Biñan towards the terminus of the expressway at Calamba through an exit to the Maharlika Highway. The highway was also part of the Osmeña Highway until 1992 when R.A. 6760 was amended, which named the segment after the Philippines' national hero, Dr. Jose Rizal.[2] The road starting from Alabang Viaduct in Muntinlupa up to Calamba forms the South Luzon Tollway, handled by the South Luzon Tollway Corporation, a joint venture of the Philippine National Construction Corporation and the SMC-backed Citra group of Indonesia.[4]

South Luzon Tollway/Alabang-Calamba-Santo Tomas Expressway[edit]

Called as the SLT or ACTEx as the new alternate name for the part of the R-3 held by South Luzon Tollway Corporation The ACTEx name refers to the segment of SLEX from Alabang Exit in Muntinlupa City up to Santo Tomas Exit in Santo Tomas, Batangas.

SLEX Redevelopment[edit]

The SLEX Upgrading and Rehabilitation Project already started since May 2006 by PNCC and MTD Capital, BHD of Malaysia (MTD Manila Expressway Corporation) joint venture, called South Luzon Tollway Corporation (SLTC), as the main proponents of the said project. In this project, the expressway will undergo a major rehabilitation similar to the recently - rehabilitated North Luzon Expressway and will eventually connect with its Batangas section, the Southern Tagalog Arterial Road, also known as the STAR Tollway. The expressway project includes the following:

Toll Road 1[edit]

The Toll road 1 or TR1 is the retrofitting and widening of the old Alabang Viaduct.
STATUS: 100% completed (including the drainage system and installing of lamp posts).

Toll Road 2[edit]

The Toll road 2 or TR2 is the rehabilitation and widening of the Alabang-Calamba segment.
STATUS: 100% completed (including the new asphalt overlay along the expressway segment, retrofitting and construction of new bridges, installing lamp posts near tollway exits, drainage and flood control system especially in the San Pedro area, renovation of tollway signage and adding electronic ones near Susana Heights and Sta. Rosa, replacement of new modern Tollbooths in every exit and a facelift of every highway overpass).

Toll Road 3[edit]

The SLEX was extended to Sto. Tomas to connect it to the STAR tollway in 2010. The SLEX is pink while the STAR is red.

The Toll road 3 or TR3 is the construction of the missing tollway link (Calamba-Santo Tomas segment). The SLEx-STAR link is a 7.3 kilometer toll road from South Luzon Expressway in Calamba, Laguna to STAR Tollway in Santo Tomas, Batangas.

Toll Road 4[edit]

The Toll Road 4 or TR4 is a proposed 55.87 kilometer 4 lane SLEX Extension to Lucena in Quezon province. It will move to Matnog, Sorsogon in preparation of the completion of Toll Road 5.
STATUS: Groundbreaking ceremony was held last June 16, 2010. However, it has now become a part of President Aquino's public-private-partnership programmes.

Toll Road 5[edit]

The Toll Road 5 or TR5 is a proposed 408 kilometer 4 lane SLEX Extension to Matnog in Sorsogon province.
STATUS: As of 2012, this project has not yet submitted to the government and its contractor SMC-backed Citra owned South Luzon Tollway Corporation. This project will be most likely completed around 2018/2019.

Rehabilitation[edit]

  • The newly built southbound portion of the Alabang Viaduct has been opened in mid-June 2008 and the northbound portion of the Alabang Viaduct was opened in November 2008, which is ahead of the original completion date of December 2008. The old lane has been demolished to give a way for constructing a new northbound portion and all of Alabang Viaduct is now fully operational.
  • Widening of the tollway from Calamba Exit to Alabang Exit including bridges and road upgrading and improvement of the SLEX's facilities is complete. It is also adding up additional overpasses to the Skyway System to accommodate the opening of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 3 and has also linked STAR Tollway to SLEX. The ground at the ending of SLEX (The circular road to Calamba via National Highway) is reconstructed and the ground has been cleared.
  • The elevated road connecting the South Luzon Expressway and Ninoy Aquino International Airport has been completed, which was announced by the Public Works Department on February 12, 2009. Construction of the road started in October 2003, with skyways linking it to the Terminal 3 of the Airport.
  • Now the rehabilitation project is complete, it is said that the expressway will have qualities similar to that of a modern Malaysian expressway. Also, the driving time from Manila to the Port of Batangas in Batangas City is reduced from four hours to roughly one and a half hours.
  • The SLEX extension TR3 or SLEX-STAR connection physically finished its extension project since October 2010 and is operational since December 15, 2010 or two months after the toll road was physically constructed due to toll hike issues. The extension runs from Calamba exit to Sto.Tomas Exit which connects it to the STAR Tollway.
  • Also on the same date which was December 15, 2010, the first portion of the Skyway Stage 2 project which was running from Bicutan to Sucat was opened to the public.

More SLEX Future developments[edit]

Skyway Stage 3 / NLEx-SLEx Connector Road / Segment 11[edit]

Two proposals for connecting the SLEx with the North Luzon Expressway (NLEx) have been under consideration by the government since 2010.[5] According to DPWH Secretary Rogelio Singson both proposals would likely be pushed through, as the proposals can co-exist as the projects service two different corridors of the metro.[6] On May 23, 2012, both companies presented their proposals to President Benigno S. Aquino III. The administration then announced through Communications Secretary Ricky Carandang that they hoped both companies could be given formal awarding and final approval by the end of the year, so that they could begin "by the end of this year or early next year."[5]

CMMTC Proposal[edit]

Dubbed as the "Skyway Stage 3", the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) had received an unsolicited proposal for the construction of the elevated toll road Skyway’s extension from San Miguel Corp. backed Citra Metro Manila Tollways Corp. (CMMTC) which according to their proposal will run from Bicutan, Taguig to Balintawak, Quezon City.[6]

The DPWH plans to include the project in its PPP thrust and plans to subject the proposal to a Swiss Challenge, Public Works Undersecretary Romeo S. Momo said in a telephone interview on Friday. A Swiss challenge requires a government agency which has received an unsolicited bid for a project to publish the bid and invite third parties to match or exceed it.[6]

As of November 29, 2013, the PHP 26.6 Billion "Skyway Stage 3 Project" is undergoing a review of the detailed engineering design by the IC[7]

MPTDC Proposal[edit]

Meanwhile a year before the CMMTC proposal was unveiled NLEX concessionaire subsidiary Metro Pacific Tollway Development Corporation (MPTDC) through its Manila North Tollways Corporation (MNTC) submitted their proposal which is dubbed as "Segment 11 or the NLEx-SLEx Connector Road" in the NLEx Phase 2 project which involves the construction of a 13.24 kilometer Elevated Expressway from Buendia (Skyway Stage 1) to the C-3 Road which will connect to the NLEx via Segment 10 of the NLEx Phase 2 project in which most of the elevated roadway will be located above the C-2 Road Right-Of-Way.[6]

As of November 29, 2013, the "NLEx-SLEx Connector Road" project worth an estimated PHP 21.2 Billion was approved as a Joint Venture Project under Presidential Decree 1894 according to the PPP Center[8] of the Philippines.

SLEX Extension to Lucena[edit]

The then-President Gloria Arroyo said the South Luzon Expressway will be extended to Lucena from Laguna as part of the Urban Luzon Beltway super region. The total length of the extension will be 55.87 kilometers. The extension will be built through a P10-billion build-operate-transfer agreement with Manila Toll Expressway Systems Inc., a company owned 40 percent by Philippine National Construction Corp. The rest is shared equally by the local firm Alloy Manila Expressway Inc. and the SMC-backed Citra Group of Indonesia which bought the shares formerly owned by the MTD Capital Berhad of Malaysia.

SLEX Extension to Matnog, Sorsogon[edit]

Dubbed as Toll Road 5, the South Luzon Expressway will be extended to Matnog from Lucena, Quezon. The total length of the extension will be 408 kilometers. The extension will decongest Andaya Highway and Pan-Philippine Highway, cut travel time from Manila to Naga by 2–3 hours, to Legazpi by 4–5 hours and to Matnog by 6 hours and soon be built by Manila Toll Expressway Systems Inc., a company owned 40 percent by Philippine National Construction Corp. The rest is shared equally by the local firm Alloy Manila Expressway Inc. and the SMC-backed Citra Group of Indonesia which bought the shares formerly owned by the MTD Capital Berhad of Malaysia.
