Construction of Malolos to Clark Railway in Full Swing (Aerial Photos)

The construction of one of the country's biggest mass transport ever, the Malolos to Clark Railway Project is now in full swing according to the latest update shared by DOTr Assistant Secretary Goddes Hope Libiran on her official social media account. 

ASec Goddes Hope Libiran shared the aerial photos of the Philippine National Railways Clark Phase 2 or the Malolos-Clark Railway Project which commenced from Sinandalan, Malolos, Bulacan to Santo Tomas, Pampanga. The said aerial photographs were made by Better Pinch Aerial Imaging. 

The DOTr stated that the project is part of President Rody Duterte's Build, Build, Build Program under the massive North-South Commuter Railway (NSCR) Project of the Department of Transportation (DOTr) and the Philippine National Railways (PNR). 

Asec Libiran revealed that once the Malolos to Clark Railway Project will be completed the travel time will be cut between Malolos, Bulacan and Clark, Pampanga from 1 hour and 30 minutes to just 35 minutes. 

Aside from the time and convenience among travelers, the project also provided more than 7,000 jobs during the construction phase of the project.

It is also expected that an estimated 3,000 job openings will be offered once the project is completed and is already operational. 

The 54-kilometer PNR Clark Phase 2 segment will be partially operated this coming 2022. It will feature the country's first "Airport Express Service," that will reduce travel time between Clark in Pampanga and Makati City to a one-hour train ride from the usual two-hour drive. 

The PNR Clark Phase 2 is the northern segment of the 147-kilometer NSCR which will run from Clark, Pampanga all the way to Calamba, Laguna.

The NSCR will have 37 stations across 26 local government units in three different regions.
