South Luzon Expressway Corp. reported a 15% year on year growth in its first quarter earnings to P831.3 million as revenues increased on higher vehicle traffic.
Toll revenues rose 5% to P1.54 billion, driven by the sustained growth of residential and industrial areas as well as strong consumer socio-economic activity in the Calabarzon.
SLTC is set to break ground for the extension of the South Luzon Expressway from Sto. Tomas, Batangas to Lucena City, Quezon. The 66.74-kilometer SLEX Toll Road 4 is part of SLTC’s 30-year concession which will last until 2036.
