The first phase of the Philippine National Railways (PNR) Clark project is nearing completion, Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade said.

In a DZRH radio interview, the official said the project, which is part of the North South Commuter Railway (NSCR), was almost complete.

Tugade said the structure of the PNR Clark Phase 1 from Tutuban to Malolos has reached 100 percent completion.

Under the Build Build Build program of the Duterte Administration, the design of the NSCR was changed into an elevated railway to address the issue of right of way and other technical matters, Tugade said.

PNR Clark Phase 1 will connect to PNR Clark Phase 2 which runs from Malolos to Clark Freeport.

The NSCR, also known as the Clark-Calamba Railway, is a 148-kilometer urban transit system under construction in Luzon.

It will run from New Clark City in Capas town, Tarlac province to Calamba, Laguna with 36 stations.

The NSCR will be connected to the existing and future railway lines in Metro Manila such as LRT Line 1, LRT Line 2, MRT Line 3, and the Metro Manila subway.
