Manila-Clark railway system to open in 2020

Published on : Tuesday, June 27, 2017

manilaThe Transportation Secretary of Philippines, Arthur Tugade is motivating the construction of the Philippine National Railway’s (PNR) Manila-Clark line.


It is scheduled to be opened in the year 2020 or even a year earlier than was expected. Based on the study made by the Jica or Japan International Cooperation Agency, the railway system is expected to be complete by the last quarter of 2021. During the marking ceremonies of Monday for the five train stations, Tugade had asked the Japanese officials helping the government in the rolling-out of the P255-billion project that they finish it a year in advance.


He also wants the railway line to be partially opened to the masses after seven of the 17 stations have been constructed and when it is planned that operating the system is viable.


The construction of the railway line would commence in the last quarter of 2017.


The marketing scheme of the five stations of the PNR Manila-Clark line was led on Monday by Tugade in an attempt to demonstrate that there was ‘no backing out’ of the project. These include the Tutuban and Caloocan stations in Manila, Valenzuela and the Meycauayan and Marilao stations in Bulacan province.


The other 12 stations proposed to be constructed are Angeles, Calumpit, Malolos, Guigunto, Balagtas, Bocacue, Solis, Apalit, Clark International Airport, San Fernando and also the New Clark City.


Susumu Ito who is the chief of Jica said that the project would boost the connectivity of important growth nerve centres like Metro Manila and also strengthen the mobility of Filipino commuters.
