The P3.7-billion first phase of the 19.83-kilometer, six-lane road connecting New Clark City and Clark International Airport was completed, state-run Bases Conversion Development Authority said Wednesday.

The 5.33-kilometer segment of the Clark International Airport to NCC Access Road project will provide faster and easier access to the gateway’s new passenger terminal—a cornerstone of the administration’s “Build, Build, Build” program.

A part of the project’s first phase is the iconic 900-meter bridge crossing the Sacobia River in Bamban, Tarlac. The entire access road project will reduce travel time from New Clark City to other districts of Clark from 45 minutes to about 15 minutes.

“The pandemic should be fought across all fronts. Advancing infrastructure projects is one way to bounce back. We are fulfilling our commitment to deliver key infrastructure projects as these will help the Philippine economy get back on its feet and propel growth,” said BCDA officer-in-charge president and chief executive Aristotle Batuhan.
