This extension will expand SLEx from Sto. Tomas in Batangas to Lucena City. This project is divided into 5 sections:

  • Sto Tomas to Makban Laguna (10.58km)
  • Makban to San Pablo City (12.2km)
  • San Pablo City to Tiaong, Quezon (8.1km)
  • Tiaong, Quezon to Candelaria, Quezon (14.4km)
  • Candelaria, Quezon to Lucena City (12.3km)

According to Public Works Secretary Mark Villar, the project finally pushed through after the DPWH acquired a “significant portion” of the road right of way (ROW).

The SLEx-TR4 was first planned and approved during the term of former president Ferdinand Marcos. Former presidents Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo and Benigno Aquino III also held groundbreaking ceremonies on separate occasions. The project slowly progressed due to ROW issues.
