QUEZON–BICOL EXPRESSWAY

Project Description: 

The project will start at Pagbilao, Quezon and will end at existing Maharlika Highway in San Fernando, Camarines Sur. The project will have an indicative length of approximately 180 kilometers and will be an alternative option of travel from Quezon and the Bicol Provinces.

Project Objectives: 
  • To provide a fast and developed alternative for commuters to use since the original road being traversed by the people will go through the “Poblacions” of the different Municipalities.
  • To provide a safe and direct route to the provinces of Bicol since the original route traverses through the mountainside and other fragmentary roads.
  • To provide a direct and fast route between both provinces, the trade of goods will also prosper not only between Quezon and Bicol but also in the Northern part of Luzon because travel time for trucks will be reduced.
  • To be classified as a “Project of National Significance” due to its function to connect Quezon and Bicol provinces which are fast developing provinces of Southern Luzon.
Project Cost:
