North Luzon infrastructure links major cities and business hubs, paves the roadway to success
The most vital infrastructure projects designed to stimulate the economic growth in Central and North Luzon are already playing a key role in the socio-economic progress of the provinces and cities within the region.
The North Luzon Expressway (NLEX), formerly called North Diversion Road is the key infrastructure development that connects Metro Manila to the provinces of Central Luzon. The expressway, including Andres Bonifacio Avenue, has a total length of 88 kilometers. With the government and private sectors pump priming this crucial project, NLEX has been extended to Carmen, Pangasinan.
North East Luzon Expressway is a 456-kilometer limited-access expressway, with the first leg starting in Quezon City and terminating at the Baliwag Junction to service the Nueva Ecija-Cagayan Valley traffic load, while the second stage reaches up to Tuguegarao City, Cagayan.
From NLEX, motorists can access other parts of Luzon via the 94-kilometer, four lane road network Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX). Its southern terminus is at the Subic Bay Freeport Zone in Zambales. Passing through the interchange at NLEX near the Clark Freeport Zone in Angeles City, its northern terminus is at the Central Techno Park in Tarlac City. SCTEX is the country’s longest tollway traversing the provinces of Tarlac, Pampanga, Bataan, and Zambales. It was built to establish an international logistics hub in Central Luzon and accelerate economic development in the region and nearby provinces.
People going farther north can access their destinations via the 85-kilometer Tarlac-Pangasinan-La Union Expressway (TPLEX), which begins in La Paz, Tarlac and ends in Rosario, La Union.
To date, the DPWH has already completed 6,071 infrastructure projects in the Ilocos Region that can help ease the lives of the locals and serve as impetus for development in the provinces of Ilocos Norte, Ilocos Sur, La Union, and Pangasinan.
The Tutuban-Malolos Railway is part of the North-South Commuter Railway (NSCR) project, also known as the Clark-Calamba Railway. The 38-kilometer mass transportation railway connects Malolos, Bulacan to NCR, serving over 300,000 passengers daily, while the 53-kilometer Malolos-Clark Railway Project (MCRP) links the city to Clark Freeport Zone and Clark International Airport (CIA) in Pampanga. Financed by the Asian Development Bank for $2.75 billion, MCRP is part of the 163 kilometer-long NSCR project which aims to connect New Clark City to Calamba by 2025.
Both important railway projects sit near the sprawling Provence development in Malolos, Bulacan, directly benefitting its residents as well as those from surrounding communities.
North Luzon will also play host to domestic and international travelers with the opening of the New Manila International Airport on a 2,400-hectare property in Bulakan, Bulacan. Featuring four runways, eight taxiways, and three terminals, it is expected to be fully operational in six years and targeted to serve 100 million passengers annually, with a design capacity that can be expanded to 200 million travelers.
The brand new airport that will drastically improve the air congestion issues at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA), and the opening of various techno parks, BPO hubs, and thriving economic zones, only signal the start of a long-term economic plan that will bolster these growth centers even more. These are the pivotal forces supporting North Luzon’s booming industries. At the tail end of these economic hubs are leisure centers, community amenities and residential developments that support this prosperous evolution even further — creating more jobs, unparalleled opportunities for young families, and the Camella promise of beautiful and secure homes across North and Central Luzon. A well deserved, abundant future for generations to come.
