Project Objectives: 

This project aims to: 

  • improve the transport of goods and services from the Southern Provinces to Manila and vice versa.
  • shorten travel time, decongest, and reduce the volume of traffic plying the Pan Philippine Highway.
  • enhance the economic efficiency of the existing South Luzon Expressway (SLEX), allowing to meet the increasing demand of traffic volumes due to the rapid growth of population, urbanization, and economic development of Quezon Province and adjoining provinces.


Project Benefits: 

At the end of construction, the project is expected to:

  • efficiently move people, products/goods and services to and from Laguna, Batangas, Quezon, and Bicol Region.
  • reduce travel time along the 58-kilometer stretch between Sto. Tomas and Lucena from 4 hours to 1 hour.
