The Department of Transportation signed an agreement with NLEX Corp. over the construction of columns for the P150-billion PNR Clark Phase 2 Project.
Under the agreement, columns for PNR Clark will be constructed in the shoulders and median island that will cross above the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway to allow seamless operations of both the expressway and the railway.
The DOTR and NLEX will also coordinate for the project design, traffic management plan, safety plan and security plan. DOTR Undersecretary Giovanni Lopez said the government gained the private sector’s trust with the “Build, Build, Build” infrastructure program.
The second leg of the NSCR Project, the 53-kilometer PNR Clark Phase 2, will connects cities and municipalities in Central Luzon to Metro Manila and will link the railway system with the country’s first ever Airport Express Service going to Clark International Airport.
