Star Tollway upgrade set
Star Infrastructure Development Corp., tollway concessionaire of Star Tollway in Batangas, starts improvement in July of the 42-km. Batangas expressway.
The project includes adding to two lanes extending from Batangas City to Lipa City, asphalt overlay work of the four lanes from Sto. Tomas up to Lipa City, installation of CCTV cameras, fiber optic cables and additional street lights.
The two additional lanes will serve as the northbound lanes coming from the Batangas City Toll plaza. Star Tollway operates on a two-lane design serving northbound and southbound vehicles. These lanes will be dedicated for southbound traffic after the new lanes are built and become operational. Asphalt overlay work from Sto. Tomas to Lipa will cover more than 40 kilometers of toll road on the southbound and northbound direction.
“These major road improvements must be undertaken soon to sustain the rapid growth of trade and tourism in the Province of Batangas, and the rest of the Southern Tagalog Region, ” SIDC president Melvin Nazareno said.
Alongside the road construction activities would be the installation of fiber optic cables which is part of Star Tollway’s system and communication upgrading program, which includes an enhanced toll collection system and the installation of CCTV cameras on the entire stretch of the expressway.
