The Southern Tagalog Arterial Road (also known as the STAR Tollway or CALABARZON Expressway) is a four-lane (from Sto. Tomas to Lipa) and two-lane (from Lipa to Batangas) 42 km (26 mi) expressway in the Philippines. It is operated by STAR Infrastructure Development Corporation (STAR - IDC)

The expressway starts at the intersection with the Pan-Philippine Highway (also known as the Maharlika Highway) and the South Luzon Expressway in Santo Tomas, Batangas and runs southward, near Diversion Road, to Batangas City. It passes through Malvar, Batangas; Tanauan City; Lipa City; Ibaan, Batangas; and Batangas City.

History[edit]

The STAR Tollway was named in honor of Apolinario Mabini.

In an effort to link the different Southern Tagalog Provinces to the National Capital Region, the government with the cooperation of the Provincial Government of Batangas and with the technical and country developmental assistance of the Government of Japan through the Japan Official Development Assistance, made the STAR Tollway project a reality.

The STAR Tollway I, from Santo Tomas to Lipa City, was opened in 2001; STAR Tollway II, from Lipa City to the Batangas City Port, opened in 2008. It is fully operational for all motorists. Currently, only two lanes of the Lipa-Batangas road have been constructed, and this will be expanded to four lanes once this section reaches capacity. It was opened as part of the Road Development Project of the government, linking the South Luzon Expressway to STAR Tollway onwards to the Batangas Port in Batangas City. The travel time from Manila to Batangas City became 2 hours when Stage 2 opened.

The STAR Tollway Project I and II was funded by Japan Bank for International Cooperation (JBIC) and Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and implemented by the Department of Public Works and Highways - Urban Roads Project Office (DPWH - URPO).

The STAR Tollway is now under the supervision of the Toll Regulatory Board (TRB) and it is being operated by the Star Tollway Corporation.

STAR Tollway's name and origin[edit]

On February 9, 2004, Congresswoman Victoria Hernandez Reyes from the Third Congressional District of Batangas of the House of the Representatives, authored the House Bill 2753, or also known as the "Act of Renaming the Southern Tagalog Arterial Road (STAR) to Apolinario Mabini Superhighway (AMS)." On May 15, 2007, President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo signed and approved House Bill 2753 to rename the Southern Tagalog Arterial Road to Apolinario Mabini Superhighway, and it was made into a law, now called the Republic Act 9462 (RA 9462).[1]

STAR Tollway Redevelopment[edit]

Announced by the operator, STAR-Infrastructure Development Corporation, on May 16, 2013, the STAR Tollway Upgrading and Rehabilitation Project is stated to begin on July 2013 as announced by SIDC president Melvin Nazareno. Under the project, the expressway would undergo several upgrade and rehabilitation on its roads and facilities in order to keep up with the demand of the expressway. The expressway project includes the following:[2]

Santo Tomas-Lipa City Segment[edit]

The existing 4-lane stretch from Santo Tomas to Lipa City will be rehabilitated and upgraded from a four lane concrete road to a four lane asphalt road similar to other existing toll roads in the country. The whole stretch of the expressway would be installed with CCTV cameras by installation of fiber-optic cables. Also there is the upgrade of the toll collection system which would make it faster and more seamless.

Lipa City-Batangas City Segment[edit]

On the other hand, the 2-lane stretch of road from Lipa City to Batangas City will be rehabilitated and upgraded to a four lane asphalt road similar to the Santo Tomas-Lipa City Segment of the expressway with some interchange reworks on some exit to fit this upgrade. Like the Santo-Tomas-Lipa City Segment, the whole stretch of the expressway would be installed with CCTV cameras by installation of fiber-optic cables. Also there is the upgrade of the toll collection system which would make it faster and more seamless. The expansion of the Lipa City-Batangas City segment commenced on June 2013, and is expected to finish in 24 months, in June 2015. [3]
