The Department of Transportation (DOTr) has released photos showing actual construction works at the Calumpit Main Site Yard for the ongoing PNR Clark Phase 1 (Tutuban-Malolos) Project.
“This facility located in Calumpit, Bulacan is a 14-hectare area that serves as the main production site for the precast segments of Contract Package 2 (CPO2) of the PNR Clark Phase 1,” DOTr said.
It noted that CP02 covers the construction works for three stations, namely: Balagtas, Guiginto, and Malolos.
“This yard will include a batching plant for the supply of concrete to expedite precast segment production and other fabrication requirements,” DOTr said.
It is expected that once PNR Clark Phase 1 is fully operational, the 38-km elevated rail line will reduce travel time between Manila and Bulacan from one (1) hour and 30 minutes to just 35 minutes.
“The rail line is expected to serve 300,000 passengers daily,” DOTr said.
