Star Tollway Corp.’s (STC) business development manager Tony Reyes recently visited Archbishop Ramon Arguelles of the Archdiocese of Lipa to share the company's plans for the forthcoming Holy Week next month.

Two additional lanes from Lipa to Batangas City were made while the entire toll road gets a new asphalt overlay that will make travel by the devotees bound for Lipa,Taal and Batangas City more pleasant, safer and faster according to STC.

Furthermore, an array of traffic and safety measures were allotted to the 42-kilometer Star Tollway between Sto. Tomas and Batangas City as thousands of pilgrims and devotees from the north and south will make their way to Batangas for the traditional Visita Iglesia to 49 churches in the province.

Arguelles then suggested that it would be better if STC was able to place more directional signs along Star Tollway that would lead to churches in the province.

Reyes obliged to put up more directional signage near exits that can lead motorists or pilgrims to other popular church destinations.

Installation of additional lighting facilities and CCTV cameras, which are part of the PhP2.3 billion improvement project, are expected to be completed soon in time for the summer vacation.
