Construction of a 17.74-kilometer access road that will connect Subic Bay Freeport Zone to the Mabiga exit of Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway is under way, according to the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH).

DPWH Regional Director Roseller Tolentino said the diversion road will bring the Hermosa Ecozone Industrial Park closer to major seaports and airports in the region.

It will also connect to the Luzon Spine Expressway Network easing mobility and accessibility in Central Luzon.

“This multi-year project started in 2020 when the initial allocation of P120 million was released by the national government for the improvement of the 3.95-kilometer Mabiga-Morong segment, which as of March 31, 2022 had an accomplishment rate of 74.28 percent,” Tolentino said.

“Our thrust is to increase our road investments in the region,” he said.

“Expanding our existing road networks in the country’s industrial heartland will primarily benefit ecozone locators as there will be greater mobility that can result in lower business costs and faster delivery of goods and services,” Tolentino added.
