MALOLOS TO TUTUBAN IN JUST 35 MINUTES, SOON!
With 24/7 work construction schedule, the much-awaited PNR Clark Phase 1(Malolos to Tutuban) segment of the massive North South Commuter Railway (NSCR) project, is going full steam ahead, as we report an overall progress rate of 42.66%, as of 31 December 2020.
Amid the current pandemic, the construction works continue at an accelerated pace, under the strictest implementation of health protocols, including the construction of temporary access roads, temporary bridges, temporary facilities, as well as the bored piling works, structural excavation works, and fabrication of precast segment.
This 38-km PNR Clark Phase 1, is one of 3 segments of the NSCR Project, the mamoth, centerpiece transport infrastructure of the "BUILD BUILD BUILD" program of the Duterte administration, that will connect Central Luzon, Metro Manila, and CALABARZON under one railway network.
Upon completion, PNR Clark Phase 1 is projected to reduce the travel time from Tutuban, Manila to Malolos, Bulacan from 1 hour and 30 minutes to just 35 minutes, with a scheduled partial operability seen by the end of this year upon the arrival of its first set of trains.
The NSCR is seen as a boost to significantly improve the connectivity and mobility of our riding public across regions, as well as propeling the country's mass transportation systems to modern standards.
