Pampanga’s quarry haulers have raised sand prices to cover for the sharp hike in transport expenses due to the recent restrictions on the North Luzon Expressway, according to a Sun Star Pampanga report.

The report said Pampanga’s unfiltered sand now costs P1,500 per cubic meter in Luzon, as of August 19, from the previous price of P550 per cubic meter.

The increase is due to hauling trucks’ load reduction and longer shipment routes, on top of the recent oil price increases, the report said, quoting Lennard Lansang, president of Porac Haulers and Truckers Association based in Porac town.

“Bigger vehicles with higher loads take other routes in Pampanga, Bulacan, Tarlac and Nueva Ecija provinces, entailing more labor and fuel expenses,” the Sun Star report added.

On August 2, Pampanga Governor Dennis Pineda imposed a 15-day suspension of quarry operations to give haulers time to cut the sidings of their trucks to conform with the gross vehicle weight required under Republic Act 8794.
