Construction of SLEX extension to Quezon starts: Bibilis na ang biyaheng pa-Bicol!

Mar 30, 2019 @ 9:48

The Department of Public Works and Highways has broken ground on the 66.74-kilometer South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) Toll Road 4 (TR4), which will reduce travel time to Quezon and Bicol by three hours once completed.

The groundbreaking ceremony on Tuesday was attended by Public Works Secretary Mark Villar and San Miguel Corporation president Ramon Ang, whose company will construct the P13.1-billion tollway.

Villar said the SLEX-TR4 will significantly benefit motorists going to southern Luzon provinces.

“During rush hour, motorists have to endure a long 4-hour drive due to the lengthy and busy Daang Maharlika between Sto. Tomas, Batangas to Lucena City, Quezon. This will only take an hour once TR4 is completed,” he said.

The four-lane toll road will have a total of seven interchanges in the following areas: Sto. Tomas, Batangas; Makban, and San Pablo City in Laguna; Tiaong, Candelaria, Tayabas, and Lucena City in Quezon.
