MANILA, Philippines – State-owned Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) is set to complete next month the 19.4-kilometer access road project that will provide a greater level of accessibility to the Clark Green City site.
In a statement yesterday, BCDA said construction of the access road project is in full blast and is currently 60 percent complete.
BCDA president and CEO Arnel Paciano Casanova said once the access road project is completed by July 15, both current and prospective investors would be able to visit the area more frequently.
Casanova said roads would play a vital role in the development of the area, as it will increase its land value, economic potential and attractiveness to interested investors and proponents.
“The bulldozers are on full throttle and we are on track in building the country’s first smart, green and disaster-resilient metropolis, Once the roads are completed, we start breaking ground for the various development projects located at different sites of Clark Green City,” he said.
BCDA said the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) is also implementing the construction of two primary access roads that lead to the Clark Green City.
