Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) President and Chief Executive Officer Aileen Zosa said the road network in the New Clark City (NCC) offers “unmatched connectivity.”
In a media briefing held at the Hilton Clark Hotel, Zosa said private partners are now forging ahead with their developments in the area which is the next growth area in Central Luzon.
Zosa presented the NCC’s “Transit-Oriented Developmnents” that will link the area to the following: Airport to NCC Access Road, NCC to SCTEX Access Road, NLEX, and North-South Commuter Rail.
NCC will also be linked to the San Jose, Tarlac—Botolan, Zambales Roadway, a vital linkage that will also promote the beaches of Zambales province.
Connectivity, being a crucial component of the development, has also taken priority with multiple roads constructed to ease travel and link NCC to Clark Freeport Zone and Clark International Airport.
Other developments in the NCC include Filinvest Land Inc. with its 288-hectare mixed-use township project, and Hann Development Corp. with its ultra-luxury mountain reserve project that will feature the country’s first Banyan Tree.
“Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas is moving forward with its plans to establish a 31.3-hectare complex complete with a currency production facility and state-of-the-art security system,” Zosa added.
BCDA has allocated a five-hectare lot for the proposed Virology and Vaccine Institute of the Philippines which is among the priorities of the Marcos administration for the health sector.
NCC is also welcoming educational institutions to strengthen the capability of future workforce through education, research and skills-training that are needed by locators.
BCDA is also gearing up to put NCC in the global map as an investment hub and sports tourism destination as it hosts regular business missions and sporting events in its facilities.
“Work does not stop there. In order to realize our vision of making NCC into a smart, sustainable, and inclusive metropolis, BCDA is pursuing various projects in different fields, and we hope the private sector and our foreign partners will consider this development for their investment needs,” said Zosa.
