Intermodal transport terminal to be launched in Clark
The Clark Development Corp. is launching an intermodal transportation terminal to streamline public transportation in the Clark Freeport Zone.
In a statement, CDC president and CEO Manuel Gaerlan and SM Prime President Jeffrey Lim announced the project to be built on a 23,955 square meters’ area located at Clark’s Southern Gateway District.
The terminal, according to the statement, will be a four-storey building that includes ancillary facilities such as waiting area for passengers, restrooms, and other services required for an intermodal transportation system.
Covid-related safety protocols and guidelines will also be implemented at the site.
CDC Vice President for Business Development and Business Enhancement Group (BDBEG) Rynah Ventura and SM Supermalls Assistant Vice President for North Luzon Operations Bien Mateo were also present at the signing ceremony held at Conrad Hotel Manila.
Other Clark officials who witnessed the activity and extended their support for the said project are presidential Adviser for Clark Programs and Projects and former president Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) President and CEO Secretary Vivencio Dizon, and BCDA Chairman Gregorio Garcia III.
The establishment of the transportation terminal is intended to provide a sufficient number of departure bays for various modes of transportation such as Public Utility Buses (PUBs), Public Utility Jeepneys (PUJs), Bus Rapid Transport (BRT), shuttle services, and taxis, among others. CDC also stated that all public transportation operating within the zone will be given priority.
