/ 05:07 AM March 19, 2018

San Miguel Corp. said its tollroads in Metro Manila and parts of Luzon were ready for the expected surge of vehicles ahead of the upcoming Holy Week holiday at the end of this month.

SMC Tollways said in a statement that traffic management and safety measures had been identified and would be deployed in the Tarlac Pangasinan La Union Expressway (TPLEx), Metro Manila Skyway, South Luzon Expressway (SLEx), Naia Expressway (NAIAx) and the Southern Tagalog Arterial Road (STAR).


During the period, the company expects vehicle volume to increase by around 10 percent.

“SMC Tollways will mobilize all operations staff, additional toll collectors, ambulant tellers and traffic management personnel during the busy week. Temporary toll collection booths will be installed to speed up transaction time at the toll plazas. All road works will be suspended,” it said in the statement.


SMC Tollways tied up with affiliate Petron Corp. to establish motorist assistance stations. These will be located in the following areas: TPLEx–Petron KM 134 northbound and southbound and at the TPLEx Toll Operations Compound northbound; Skyway–C5 and Merville southbound, Sucat Lay-by Northbound.
