Roads in the Philippines

The South Luzon Expressway (SLE or SLEx), formerly known as the South Superhighway (SSH), Manila South Diversion Road (MSDR), and Manila South Expressway (MSEX), 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 Skyway, 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–Santo Tomas Expressway (ACTEX), is jointly operated by the South Luzon Tollway Corporation, a joint venture of the Philippine National Construction Corporation and the San Miguel Corporation-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 is a component of Expressway 2 (E2) of the Philippine expressway network and Radial Road 3 (R-3) of Manila's arterial road network. It starts in Manila's Paco District at Quirino Avenue and passes through the following cities and municipalities: 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. Most of the part of the expressway is part of the N1 (AH26) from Magallanes Interchange onto Calamba Exit (Exit 50).

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 northbound from Susana Heights

Since 2010, the South Luzon Expressway network cuts southwards from the Manila up to the provinces of Laguna, Cavite, and Batangas. Future plans call for the extension of the expressway to Quezon. 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. A short portion of the expressway between Magallanes and Nichols are at-grade. High voltage power lines, primarily transmisison and subtransmission lines which are operated and maintained by National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) and various distribution companies, respectively, run parallel or cross the expressway.

Pres. Sergio Osmeña Sr. Highway/South Superhighway[edit]

  • President Sergio Osmeña Sr. Highway
  • Osmeña Highway
  • South Superhighway
Location: Manila - Makati
Pres. Sergio Osmeña Sr. Highway segment of SLEx in Magallanes, Makati just south of Magallanes Interchange.

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, Pasay and Taguig is a toll-free highway before reaching the Nichols Toll Plaza from which the tolled expressway begins. Heading southward, the expressway has exits in C-5 Road in Taguig,the 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] Most of Osmeña Highway parallels the PNR Metro South Commuter Line.

Osmeña Highway starts at the traffic light with Quirino Avenue. The 230kV Sucat-Araneta-Balintawak transmission line of NGCP also parallels the highway until Maricaban Creek in Makati. It then crosses San Andres Street, Ocampo (Vito Cruz) Street, and Zobel Roxas Street. The highway climbs over to pass above Gil Puyat Avenue through the Buendia Flyover, with service roads to serve that avenue and several side streets. The Skyway starts on the ramps past Buendia Flyover. Osmeña Highway crosses over Arnaiz Avenue, and soon crosses over EDSA at the Magallanes Interchange. The concurrency with the Pan-Philippine Highway starts at that interchange. Past Magallanes Interchange, the highway features 5 lanes, with 1 lane designated as motorcycle lanes until it comes near Nichols Interchange, where the toll road starts. Osmeña Highway becomes a toll road past the Sales Interchange, with motorcycles below 400cc prohibited to use the tolled expressway.

The part of Osmeña Highway north of Magallanes Interchange is maintained by the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) through the South Manila District Engineering Office, and the portion south is maintained by the Skyway Operations and Management Company. The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) has jurisdiction also of both segments, and maintains motorcycle lanes up to Nichols.

Skyway At-Grade (Nichols—Alabang)[edit]

Location: Makati - Muntinlupa
South Luzon Expressway and Skyway near Villamor Airbase at the Pasay-Taguig boundary.

From Nichols, Past the Sales Interchange, Osmeña Highway becomes the tolled South Luzon Expressway. The expressway includes two service roads until Alabang Exit. The PNR Metro South Commuter Line runs between the South Luzon Expressway and Skyway until it passes over C-5 Exit. The expressway and its service roads run through the Pasay-Taguig boundary until it reaches C-5 Exit. Past C-5 Exit, Skyway runs over South Luzon Expressway up to Alabang. South Luzon Expressway slightly curves and passes over Bicutan, running as a straight route with the Skyway above until it reaches Alabang Exit and Alabang Viaduct. The expressways mostly runs through the Parañaque-Taguig boundary until it comes near Sucat, where it crosses Dr. Santos Avenue. The subtransmission line of Meralco can also be seen on this exit. South Luzon Expressway and Skyway enters Muntinlupa, passing over barangays Sucat, Buli, and Cupang, before approaching Alabang. Another NGCP transmission line named Muntinlupa-Biñan intersects the expressway on Buli River. Skyway soon leaves, curves westward, and descends toward Alabang-Zapote Road. Alabang Exit is the terminus of the expressway from 1969 to 1976, before the Alabang Viaduct was built and extended until Calamba Exit. It is also the site of the former Alabang Toll Barrier. South Luzon Expressway climbs over the Maharlika Highway (National Road or Manila South Road) through the Alabang Viaduct, with a transmission line mentioned before crosses the viaduct, before it descends and becomes the Alabang-Calamba-Santo Tomas Expressway (ACTEx) or South Luzon Tollway (SLT).

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 exit at Calamba through 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 Santo Tomas, Batangas 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.[3]

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 up to Santo Tomas Exit in Santo Tomas, Batangas.

South Luzon Expressway in Carmona.

South Luzon Tollway/ACTEX start past Filinvest Exit (Exit 23), with 2 to 4 lanes per direction and mostly paralleling the four-lane Maharlika Highway (National Highway, National Road or officially Manila South Road/MSR) over Muntinlupa and northwestern Laguna.[4] The road slightly curves over barangays Bayanan and Putatan on Muntinlupa. The expressway's first service area, Tollway Plaza, having a Shell gas station and several restaurants such as Jollibee, KFC, Greenwich, Burger King, and others, is also located on this segment. Past that service area, South Luzon Expressway mostly follows a straight course, passing the interchange serving the newly opened Muntinlupa–Cavite Expressway, the Maharlika Highway, and barangays Poblacion and Tunasan in Muntinlupa.

It soon enters Laguna at San Pedro, continuing as a straight roadway lined with billboards and passing through the city's residential and industrial areas before curving and ascending past the Petron and Caltex service areas to clear Pacita Avenue and the disused spur of the PNR South Main Line. South Luzon Expressway soon enters Biñan, passing near Southwoods, Barangay San Francisco (Halang), and Splash Island, before entering Carmona, Cavite. The Biñan-Dasmarinas transmission line also intersects the expressway after Southwoods Exit. It passes through Carmona in about one kilometer, with an exit to serve the town proper, before re-entering Biñan at Santo Tomas Bridge. The Bay-Biñan transmission line (mostly supported by steel pole and lattice towers) and another Meralco subtransmission line named LIIP-ROHM enter the expressway starting on this exit. The first route marker for AH26 is found on this segment. Returning to Binan, the road runs straight over Barangay Santo Tomas (Calabuso), and enters Barangay Mamplasan, with an exit to serve Laguna International Industrial Park, and several residential communities such as Brentville and Jubilation. The Calaca-Laguna Technopark (Santa Rosa)-Biñan power line intersects the expressway just before Greenfield City/Unilab Exit. A Caltex service is found on the southbound expressway over Mamplasan. It soon enters Santa Rosa, Laguna on a straight route, mostly lined with tress. It intersects Santa Rosa-Tagaytay Road to Santa Rosa city proper and Tagaytay through a partial cloverleaf interchange. South Luzon Expressway reduces into 3 lanes, having guard rails as the median divider. The road passes near Enchanted Kingdom and ETON City, which is within the limits of barangay Don Jose, Santa Rosa, Laguna. A Total service area lies beside the northbound lanes of the expressway.

South Luzon Expressway enters Cabuyao, passing near Malayan Colleges Laguna (formerly the location of the warehouses owned by the defunct Uniwide Sales Inc.) and Santa Elena Golf and Country Club. It crosses the San Cristobal River and enters Calamba, being on a straight route until Batangas/Calamba Exit. The road approaches the Calamba toll plaza, widening to 18 lanes (including the lanes on the second southbound toll plaza and the northbound lanes), before returning to 3 lanes per direction. It passes through barangays Mayapa, Batino and Prinza before approaching Batangas/Calamba Exit. At Batangas Exit (exit 50), AH26 leaves the expressway and follows again the Maharlika Highway/Manila South Road. Calamba Exit was the former terminus of the South Luzon Expressway from 1976 to 2010, when the expressway is extended to connect with STAR Tollway and bypass the congested Pan-Philippine Highway/Maharlika Highway over Turbina. Starting also on this exit, the Bay-Biñan transmission line goes farther from the expressway but will still parallel to it until Santo Tomas Exit or the road enters to Southern Tagalog Arterial Road.

Calamba–Santo Tomas segment of SLEX looking south towards STAR Tollway

Past Calamba Exit, the expressway narrows to 2 lanes per direction, with no exits. South Luzon Expressway, also called the Alabang-Calamba-Santo Tomas Expressway, follows a curved route paralleling the Pan-Philippine Highway (Maharlika Highway or Manila South Road) from Calamba to Santo Tomas, Batangas. It approaches the Ayala Greenfield toll plaza, continues over barangay Saimsim, and then enters Batangas on Siam-siam Bridge. The expressway curves before it ends at kilometer 57.2, continuing toward Batangas City as the STAR Tollway. However, the kilometer count of the next expressway after the Santo Tomas exit instead starts at kilometer 60.

History[edit]

SLEX near the original Alabang Toll Plaza, in 1976.

South Luzon Expressway was originally built during the Marcos Era as South Diversion Road or South Superhighway as newer roads used to travel from and to Manila.[5] South Superhighway was referred to as the Manila to Alabang segments that started in 1967 and was completed on December 16, 1969.

In 1976, the expressway was extended by another 29 kilometers (18 mi) from Alabang up to Calamba, Laguna. The project includes the 850-meter (0.53 mi) long viaduct which crosses over Alabang and is called Alabang Viaduct.[6]

Rehabilitation and opening of connection with STAR Tollway[edit]

SLEx-Calamba segment in 2007, prior to the rehabilitation work completion.

Before rehabilitation work starting in 2006, South Luzon Expressway is mostly an expressway with a grass median, and 2 lanes per direction from Alabang to Calamba. Rehabilitation work started in 2006, with heavy traffic brought by construction work. Alabang Viaduct is widened to 4 lanes, and the construction of Skyway Stage 2 caused traffic on the Nichols-Alabang segment. Rehabilitation work is finished in 2009, and the Alabang-Calamba segment is expanded to 3 to 4 lanes.

On 2010, an extension of the expressway, named Alabang-Calamba-Santo Tomas Expressway or ACTEx is opened, eventually connecting South Luzon Expressway with STAR Tollway.

The Toll Road 4 or TR4 is a 61 km (38 mi) extension of SLEX from Santo Tomas in Batangas to Lucena, or Tayabas in Quezon. Construction is divided into 5 segments and expected to start by June 2017. The extension project is implemented by the Toll Regulatory Board and will be operated by the South Luzon Tollway Corporation (SLTC). The extension will decongest the existing national road between Santo Tomas and Lucena and provide a modern alternate route for travellers from Quezon and Bicol Region. Right of way for the expressway are acquired for the first three segments between Santo Tomas and Tiaong, and are ongoing for the remainder between Tiaong, Candelaria and Tayabas. [7][needs update] As of June 2017, no construction activity has started yet.[citation needed]

If completed, the extension will have these exits:

STATUS: As of 2015, this extension is being discussed by Albay Gov. Joey Salceda, Toll Regulatory Board chairman Edmund Reyes, San Miguel Corporation and Ramon Ang.

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.[8] According to then-DPWH Secretary Rogelio Singson both proposals would be pushed through, as the proposals can co-exist as the projects service two different corridors of the metro.[9] On May 23, 2012, both companies presented their proposals to then-President Benigno S. Aquino III. The administration then announced through then-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.",[8] Construction began in 2018.

CMMTC Proposal/Skyway Stage 3[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.[9]

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.[9]

As of November 29, 2013, the ₱26.6 billion "Skyway Stage 3 Project" is undergoing a review of the detailed engineering design by the IC.[10]

Construction began in the First Quarter of 2015.

MPTDC Proposal/NLEX-SLEX Connector Road (Segment 11)[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 Philippine National Railways Right-Of-Way.[9]

As of November 29, 2013, the "NLEx-SLEx Connector Road" project worth an estimated ₱21.2 billion was approved as a Joint Venture Project under Presidential Decree 1894 according to the PPP Center[11] of the Philippines.

SLEX Extension to Matnog, Sorsogon[edit]

Dubbed as Toll Road 5/Quezon-Bicol Expressway, the South Luzon Expressway will be extended to Matnog from Lucena, Quezon. The total length of the extension will be 432.4 kilometers. The extension will decongest Andaya Highway and Pan-Philippine Highway, cut travel time from Manila to Naga City by 2–3 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. As of 2015, the extension is discussed by Albay Gov. Joey Salceda, Toll Regulatory Board chairman Edmund Reyes, San Miguel Corporation and Ramon Ang.[12]

Toll[edit]

Calamba Toll Plaza in Calamba, Laguna

South Luzon Expressway employs closed and barrier toll systems. Upon entry on the expressway, drivers get a paper coupon that is surrendered on the exiting toll plaza. The process was once done using cards with a magnetic strip.

The expressway implements a electronic toll collection (ETC) system, the Autosweep RFID, using RFID technology, and the system formerly used "E-Pass", which uses transponder technology. The ETC system are shared by the Skyway. ETC collection are done on dedicated lanes at the toll plaza, but also done on mixed toll lanes.

The toll rates by vehicle class are as follows:

Class Toll
Class 1
(Cars, Motorcycles, SUVs, Jeepneys)
₱3.37/km
Class 2
(Buses, Light Trucks)
₱6.74/km
Class 3
(Heavy Trucks)
₱10.11/km

Services[edit]

Service areas[edit]

Caltex service area in Mamplasan, Biñan, Laguna

The South Luzon Expressway has 8 service areas, with 4 on each direction. Most of the service areas occupy large land areas and have restaurants and retail space, with the exception of two service areas near Silangan Exit, which are simply Petron gas stations, both opened in 2016, with no other shops other than a San Mig Food Ave convenience store and car repair services. The service areas also provide ETC reloading for Autosweep RFID users

From the direction of Manila, the service areas are as follows:

  • Shell SLEX Southbound - Formerly called Tollway Plaza. This service area serves southbound motorists and has various restaurants, like Jollibee, KFC, Burger King, Subway, Cinnabon, Hen Lin, and Café France, as well as a Shell gas station, Shell Select convenience store, car repair service, and restrooms. The service area is found in barangay Putatan in Muntinlupa.
  • Petron SLEX Southbound - This service area hosts some restaurants like McDonald's, The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf, Pancake House, and Chatime, along with a Petron gas station, San Mig Food Ave, Autosweep RFID reloading station, ATMs, restrooms, and car repair service. The service area is found in barangay San Antonio in San Pedro, Laguna, and serves only southbound motorists.
  • Caltex SLEX Norththbound - This service area hosts a Caltex gas station, a 7-Eleven convenience store, and some restaurants like McDonald's, KFC, Cinnabon, and Starbucks, as well as restrooms and small kiosks.

Lay-bys[edit]

The South Luzon Expressway also has lay-bys, or emergency parking areas where motorists can stop for safety checks on their vehicles and other emergencies.

Exits and intersections[edit]

Kilometer stones or markers count the distance (in kilometers) from the Kilometer Zero in Rizal Park. Exits are mostly named and numbered, but exit numbers appear only after Alabang Exit. There is a discrepancy with mileage, with Kilometer 24 being Kilometer 23 rather on the Manila Toll Expressway Systems (MATES) maintained segments of SLEX, although a Kilometer 23 already lies near Cupang, Muntinlupa. From Quirino Avenue to Magallanes Interchange, SLEX is an at-grade national road named Osmeña Highway, which is part of N145. No tolls are paid on Canlubang, Batino, and Batangas/Calamba exits (exits 47, 49, and 50).
