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 Route 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. The segment of the expressway from Magallanes Interchange to Calamba Exit (Exit 50) is part of Asian Highway 26 (AH26) of the Asian highway network.

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 in Santo Tomas, Batangas.

Route description[edit]

South Luzon Expressway looking northbound from Susana Heights

Since 2010, the South Luzon Expressway network cuts southwards from 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 is built at-grade. Various high voltage overhead power lines, most notably the Paco-Muntinlupa segment of Sucat-Araneta-Balintawak and Bay-Biñan transmission lines of National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) from Quirino Avenue to Maricaban Creek, Carmona to Calamba exits, and near Purok 2 Makiling overpass to Siam-Siam bridge, utilize a significant portion of the expressway route as the densely populated areas hinder acquisition of dedicated right of way.

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

  • President Sergio Osmeña Sr. Highway
  • Osmeña Highway
  • South Superhighway
LocationManila – 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 to Alabang in Muntinlupa. The part of Osmeña Highway which passes through Manila, Makati, Pasay and Taguig is toll-free; upon reaching the Nichols Toll Plaza 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. 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. Past the Sales Interchange, motorcycles below 400cc are prohibited from using 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]

Skyway At-grade
LocationMakati – 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 at-grade Skyway. It includes service roads on either side up to Alabang. The expressway and its service roads run through the Pasay-Taguig boundary up to the C-5 Exit. Parallel to the highway, the PNR Metro South Commuter Line also runs between the at-grade and elevated Skyway segments until it passes the C-5 Exit. Past C-5, the two expressways follow the same alignment, one running above the other. They slightly curve and pass over Bicutan before running in a straight line, past the Sucat Exit Dr. Santos Avenue, until they reach the Alabang Viaduct. The Osmeña continues its straight line southward as it enters Muntinlupa, passing over barangays Sucat, Buli, and Cupang, before approaching Alabang, while the elevated Skyway curves westward and descends toward Alabang-Zapote Road. Alabang Exit was the terminus of the Osmeña Highway from 1969 to 1976, before the Alabang Viaduct was built and the expressway extended to Calamba. It is also the site of the former Alabang Toll Barrier prior to the split of the entire SLEX into two concessions, namely the Skyway System and SLTC-SLEX (formerly PNCC-SLEX). It climbs over the Maharlika Highway (National Road or Manila South Road) through the Alabang Viaduct, before it descends and becomes the Alabang-Calamba-Santo Tomas Expressway (ACTEx) or SLEX Main.

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 Philippine 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]

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

LocationMuntinlupa – Santo Tomas, Batangas

SLEX Main, South Luzon Tollway (SLT), or ACTEx are the alternate name for the part of the R-3 held by South Luzon Tollway Corporation. The ACTEx name refers to the segment of the two SLEX concessions from Alabang Exit in Muntinlupa up to Santo Tomas Exit in Santo Tomas, Batangas.

South Luzon Expressway in Carmona.

SLEX Main/ACTEX starts 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, among others, is also located at 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. 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 first route marker for AH26 is found at this segment. Returning to Binan, the road runs straight over Barangay Santo Tomas (Calabuso), and enters Barangay Mamplasan, with an exit to serve the Laguna International Industrial Park and several residential communities such as Brentville and Jubilation. A Caltex service area is on the southbound side 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 on 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, going in 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 was extended to connect with STAR Tollway and bypass the congested Pan-Philippine Highway/Maharlika Highway over Turbina.

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. A few meters farther is the location where a future Toll Road 4 will branch off. 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 starts at kilometer 60.


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 included the 850-meter (0.53 mi) long viaduct which crosses over Alabang and is called Alabang Viaduct. This later on became the boundary when the PNCC decided to split SLEX into two concessions which renamed the Nichols to Alabang segment as the South Metro Manila Skyway System while the Alabang to Santo Tomas segment retained the South Luzon Expressway concession branding.[6]

Rehabilitation and opening of connection with STAR Tollway[edit]

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

Prior to rehabilitation, the South Luzon Expressway was 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 was widened to 4 lanes per direction, and the construction of Skyway Stage 2 caused traffic disruptions on the Bicutan-Alabang segment (though mitigated by the use of the sosrobahu method to build and position the bridge piers). Rehabilitation work was finished in 2009, and the Alabang-Calamba segment was expanded to 3 to 4 lanes.

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

The Toll Road 4 or TR4 is a 61 km (38 mi) extension of SLEX from Santo Tomas in Batangas to Lucena in Quezon. Construction will be divided into 5 segments, with 1 additional extension to Lucena on the revised project outline. The extension project is implemented by the Toll Regulatory Board and will be operated by the South Luzon Tollway Corporation (SLTC). The extension promises to decongest the existing national road between Santo Tomas and Lucena and provide a modern alternate route for travellers from Quezon to the Bicol Region. Right of way has been acquired for the first three segments between Santo Tomas and Tiaong, and ongoing for the remainder between Tiaong, Candelaria and Tayabas. Right of way acquisition is ongoing as of 2019, and the groundbreaking ceremony was held on March 26, 2019, alongside the beginning of construction.[7] The future expressway will start near the Ayala Greenfield toll plaza in Calamba rather than in Santo Tomas after various project alignment revisions due to right-of-way issues.

When completed, the extension will have these exits:

SLEX Extension to Sorsogon (Toll Road 5/Quezon-Bicol Expressway)[edit]

Dubbed as Toll Road 5/Quezon-Bicol Expressway, the South Luzon Expressway will be extended to Matnog in Sorsogon from Lucena, Quezon. The total length of the extension will be 430 kilometers. The extension hopes to 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 to be built by Manila Toll Expressway Systems Inc., a company partly owned (40%) by the Philippine National Construction Corporation, the rest 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. Since 2015, the extension has been discussed by former Albay Gov. (and now Rep.) Joey Salceda, Toll Regulatory Board chairman Edmund Reyes, and San Miguel Corporation president Ramon Ang.[8]

Other future plans[edit]

Other planned expansion projects in the SMC-PNCC joint venture pipeline with connections to either SLEX and the Skyway system include: (a) the San Pedro-C6 Laguna Lake Road that will link SLEx from San Pedro, Laguna to C6 in Taguig; (b) Skyway Stage 8 or Tanauan-Tagaytay Expressway; (c) Skyway Stage 7 that will connect Taguig to Commonwealth Avenue in Quezon City; (d) Buendia Interchange and Ramp Extension to Macapagal Boulevard; and (e) Skyway Stage 9 or Pasig River Alignment.[9]

Calamba Toll Plaza in Calamba, Laguna
SLEX Southbound Nichols Toll Plaza, in operation since 2010 (May 21, 2017)

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

The expressway implements an 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 is shared by the Skyway, STAR Tollway, and NAIAX. ETC collection is 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)
Class 2
(Buses, Light Trucks)
Class 3
(Heavy Trucks)


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.

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]

Exits and intersections are numbered by kilometre post, with Rizal Park in Manila designated as kilometre 0. 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 the expressway, although a Kilometer 23 already lies near Cupang, Muntinlupa. From Quirino Avenue to Magallanes Interchange, the expressway is an at-grade secondary national highway named Osmeña Highway, which is a component of National Route 145 (N145) of the Philippine highway network. No tolls are paid on Canlubang, Batino, and Batangas/Calamba exits (exits 47, 49, and 50).
