DPWH received an initial funding amounting to PhP200M
The Clark Green City is envisioned as a response to address the congestion in Metro Manila. It is a 9,450-hectare development plan located around the Clark Freeport Zone in Pampanga.
In line with this, the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) will reportedly construct two access roads leading to Clark Green City. The DPWH will also construct an initial two-way lane that is targeted to be completed within the year.
According to the Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA), the DPWH has received an initial funding amounting to PhP 200 million.
In a report by GMA news, one of the access roads will stretch 2.5 km from the Mac Arthur highway towards Clark Green City. The PhP 45.8 million project will have a shoulder and sidewalk, bicycle lane, concrete curb and gutter, pavement marking, guardrails, signages and streetlights.
The second phase will be the construction of a 15 km road linking Clark Freeport Zone as well as Clark International Airport to Clark Green City. It will also connect to the Tarlac-Zambales road.
GMA News adds that the second phase of construction, currently in the design stage, was allocated an initial budget of PhP 150 million and the government expects to bid out the project in Q3.
