Travel from Calamba to Clark airport to be cut to 1-and-a-half hour
Traveling from Calamba in Laguna to the Clark International Airport (CRK) and vice versa will take only one and a half hours once the North-South Commuter Railway (NSCR) is finished, according to Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade.
“Dahilan sa train system ng PNR, ang pagbiyahe mo from Calamba papuntang Clark airport ay magiging isang oras at kalahati,” the Cabinet official said in a Sun Star Pampanga report.
“Kung wala hong rail system, ang biyahe mo kung makakarating ka roon sa tamang panahon ay apat na oras. Heto ho ang isang magandang epekto ng train system natin sa PNR,” Tugade was quoted as saying.
The DOTr project is a 56-kilometer railway that can accommodate 340,000 to 550,000 passengers per day, he said.
The railway system is composed of 19 stations, 19 commuter train sets and seven airport express trains, Tugade said.
“Aabot naman ho sa 10,635 ang tinatayang direktang trabaho na maaaring pakinabangan ng ating mga kababayan mula sa proyektong ito,” he said.
