SMC Submits Proposal of a P27-Billion Tanauan-Tagaytay Expressway Project


One of the country's largest conglomerate San Miguel Corporation (SMC) submits a proposal to the Duterte administration for the construction of the P27-billion alternative tollroad that will link Tagaytay to Metro Manila via Cavite and Batangas also dubbed as Tanauan-Tagaytay Expressway project.

SMC's proposal involved the construction of 29-kilometer tollroad which is envisioned to be an extension of the South Luzon Expressway (SLEx), according to a letter submitted by South Luzon Tollway Corporation (SLTC) which was submitted to DOTr Secretary Arthur Tugade and DPWH Sec. Mark Villar.

SMC President Ramon S. Ang said that the proposed Tanauan-Tagaytay Expressway project had been submitted to the government way ahead of any similar tollroad alignment proposed by any other group.

SLTC is among SMC's infrastructure businesses, as clarified by SMC President Ramon Ang.


Aside from the proposal from San Miguel, it was reported earlier that the infrastructure holding firm headed by businessman Manuel V. Pangilinan, Metro Pacific Investments Corp. (MPIC), was working on a proposal expressway that will connect Metro Manila to Tagaytay City in Cavite.

The Department of Transportation already received the unsolicited proposals made by SMC last February. The proposal is meant to improve traffic flow in Tagaytay City and locate an alternative alignment linking Metro Manila and Tagaytay.

SMC's proposal was envisioned to start from South Luzon Expressway (SLEx) toll road 3 passing through Tanauan City in Batangas and the municipalities of Silang, Amadeo, and Indang in Cavite all the way to Tagaytay City through the Tagaytay-Nasugbu Highway.

The proposal is designed to have the following five interchange locations that will provide entry and exit access to the expressway: SLEx Interchange; Calamba-Tagaytay Road; Santa Rosa-Tagaytay Road; Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo Highway; and Tagaytay-Nasugbu Highway.
