MANILA-- Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) gives priority to the construction of road connecting Clark Green City and Clark International Airport.
BCDA President and Chief Executive Officer Vivencio Dizon told reporters that this road linking its flagship development to the Clark International Airport will be the priority project of his office in the near term.
The Clark Green City to airport road is a 15-kilometer stretch infrastructure, which is estimated to cost around P8 billion.
Dizon said the feasibility study for the project is already done. The detailed engineering design for the road is expected to be completed by August this year.
He added that BCDA targets to open the bidding for the project by September.
That's the most important. We do the road that connects Green City to the airport, the BCDA chief said.
It all starts with the road. That's our priority, he stressed.
Dizon targets the Clark Green City and airport road to be delivered by 2018, so that the Phase 1 of the Clark Green City will be in a full swing.
Clark Green City's Phase 1 will be the project of Filinvest Land Inc., which the company will develop a 288-hectare land for industrial zone and mixed-use development with residential, office, commercial and institutional elements.
Within the Phase 1 is the Government Center and low- to mid-income housing project.
He added that Ateneo De Manila University has sent letter of intent to locate in Clark Green City. Ateneo is eyeing for an 80-hectare lot in the new city in Central Luzon.
