IN PHOTOS: The goal to decongest traffic and improve regional connectivity will soon be realized as Department of Transportation (DOTr) Secretary Art Tugade and San Miguel Corporation (SMC) President and CEO Ramon Ang led the signing of the Southern Access Link Expressway (SALEX) Project Supplemental Toll Operations Agreement (STOA) and Annexes yesterday, 20 June 2022.

 
The agreement signing will pave the way for the start of construction of the four sections of the SALEX. The segments of the project include the C3-R10 Extension, Shoreline Expressway, Quirino Extension, and Buendia (Gil Puyat Avenue) Extension.
 
According to the toll concessionaires, the SALEX aims to reduce traffic congestion in EDSA, South Luzon Expressway (SLEX), and other major road corridors in Metro Manila through road networks that will service both cargo and passenger traffic.
 
The DOTr, SMC, and Toll Regulatory Board (TRB) likewise aim for the SALEX to contribute to the economic development of the National Capital Region (NCR) and the Central Luzon.
 
The toll road further aims to provide efficient and direct access to the New Manila International Airport (NMIA) or the Bulacan Airport as well as support the gateway to deliver its full economic potential.
 
The project’s first section, the C3-R10 Extension will connect the Metro Manila Skyway Stage 3 (MMSS3) at Sgt. Rivera in Quezon City to the proposed Shoreline Expressway at R-10. 
 
Next is the Shoreline Expressway which starts from Ayala Bridge passing along Ayala Boulevard, San Marcelino St., Padre Faura St., A. Mabini St., Pedro Gil St., and Roxas Boulevard.
 
The Quirino Extension, on the other hand, will connect MMSS3 at the Quirino Interchange to the proposed Shoreline Expressway and in Roxas Boulevard through an elevated structure.
 
As the last section, the Buendia Extension intends to connect Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Expressway to the intersection of Gil Puyat Avenue and Roxas Boulevard, the MMSS3, and EDSA.
 
Joining Secretary Tugade and Ang in the ceremonial signing were DOTr Undersecretary for Finance Giovanni Lopez, TRB Executive Director Alvin Carullo, Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Secretary Roger Mercado, and other toll stakeholders.
