The project to build a section of a new railway line in the Philippines linking the city of Malolos with Clark International Airport, is being financed by the Asian Development Bank, with construction estimated to take three years.
The contract involves the construction of a 6.5km main railway line, which includes an elevated section, an underground section with cut and cover that will provide access to the Clark International Airport station, substation, and auxiliary facilities.
The rail line will become a key transport infrastructure in the metropolitan region of Manila and is one of the priority projects identified by the Department of Transportation (DOTR). The project will reduce the travel time between Clark and Manila to just one hour by train (it takes between two to three hours by bus) and will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by more than 60,000 tonnes a year.
ACCIONA is currently constructing the Follo Line in Oslo, Norway, which will become the longest railway tunnel in Scandinavia upon completion. Another noteworthy project is the company’s design and execution of the Dubai Metro Red Line expansion. In Latin America, ACCIONA has built metro lines in Santiago, Chile, and Quito, Ecuador. In Spain, ACCIONA has built several metro lines in Madrid and Barcelona.
