Taking a Heavy Toll
The Toll Regulatory Board (TRB) will be implementing the new VAT-inclusive toll fees starting October 1, 2011 at 12:01 in the morning.
At the implementing time and date, the North Luzon Expressway (NLEx), the South Luzon Expressway (SLEx), the Manila-Cavite Toll Expressway, the Southern Tagalog Arterial Road (STAR) and the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEx) will raise their toll fees by 12%, in accordance with the new guidelines.
The toll for the entire stretch of the NLEx from Balintawak to Dau under the new scheme will be PhP 218, while the entire SCTEx from Tipo (Subic) to Tarlac will be PhP 272.
Below is the complete document from the Toll Regulatory Board. If you live in a place that requires you to use these expressways, please, don't slam your monitor on the floor.
