The Clark Development Corporation (CDC) has completed its P7. 3 million Covered Pathway Project located at the Friendship Gate at the Clark Freeport.
Implemented through CDC’s Engineering Services Group (ESG), the 715-meter pathway is seen to benefit pedestrian workers and visitors who are entering Clark through the Friendship Gate.
It is also meant to provide shade for the commuting public and make it easier for them to travel by allowing them to walk from the jeepney station outside Friendship road to the nearest waiting shed near the intersection, according to the CDC.
According to CDC-ESG headed by Vice President Dennis Legaspi, other ongoing initiatives include Phase 4 of the Bike Lane, which is expected to be finished by September this year.
This project entails the construction of a two-meter-wide, seven-kilometer-long inbound and outbound bike lane that will allow cyclists traveling from the Friendship Gate to pass the M.A. Roxas Highway, leading to the Clark Main Gate.
Once completed, the bike lane will provide access for workers inside the Freeport Zone with a seamless and safer path while biking to work. It will also provide a longer bike route for leisure bikers and cyclists entering and exiting through the main gate.
