SLEx extension to open within the month

THE ROAD extending the South Luzon Expressway (SLEx) to Sto. Tomas, Batangas from Calamba, Laguna will open for motorists within the month, according to an official of operator South Luzon Tollways Corp. (SLTC).

“After we get the tollway insured and the certification to operate from the Toll Regulatory Board (TRB), we are set to open the tollway within the month,” SLTC and Manila Toll Expressway Systems, Inc. President Isaac S. David told reporters at the sidelines of the toll road inauguration.

Mr. David said that before TRB can give a certification, SLTC must obtain legal clearance from legal consultant Egis BCEOM International
