You read that one right! Once the airport railway in Clark International Airport is done, the travel time between Makati and Clark airport will be done in less than one hour once the airport railyway, part of the North South Commuter Railway project, is completed.
The NSCR will feature the country’s first airport express train service. The train is said to run at 160 kilometers per hour and will be one of the fastest modes of land public transportation in the Philippines.
Construction will soon start as the first two contract packages for the Philippines National Railways Clark Phase 2 (Malolos-Clark) has been signed last August 1, 2020. Once protocols have been set and cleared out, the civil works contract can help kick-start the economic revival of the Philippines as they estimate that 24,00 construction jobs will be created during the next three years and another 14,000 more to help operate the railway system.
