Under the visionary leadership of Secretary Art Tugade, the Department of Transportation (DOTr) has been relentless in its goal of developing and enhancing the country's railway networks to promote enhanced connectivity and mobility across the country and ultimately provide Filipinos a more comfortable and convenient life.
As the Duterte administration nears its conclusion, Secretary Tugade made a covenant with the Filipino people not to waste even single day at work. There is no time to relax even until the last day of office.
Under the leadership of Secretary Tugade, the Philippine National Railways (PNR) Clark Phase 2 is fast becoming a reality with the Segmental Launching Gantry beginning its operations to ensure efficient and quick construction of the railway viaduct.
Named “LUID” or “Mabuhay” in Kapampangan, the segmental launching gantry is an internationally renowned modern construction method and will be the first in the country.
LUID will be utilized to lift sixteen 35-ton pre-casted segmental box girders and combine them into one 40-meter railway viaduct span, creating a total of 140 railway viaduct spans.
The PNR Clark Phase 2 is a 53 kilometer-rail line under the North-South Commuter Railway (NSCR) Project that will connect Malolos, Bulacan to Clark, Pampanga and will improve mobility and connectivity across Central Luzon.
With one day less in the administration, the DOTr will continue to pursue game-changing projects to fulfill the marching order of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte to give the Filipino people a comfortable and convenient life.
