Clark-Tarlac expressway opening set

The Bases Conversion and Development Authority will open the 32-kilometer Clark-Tarlac segment of its flagship project on Friday.

This will fully open the 93.77-km Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway to the public. Earlier, last April 28, the 50.5-km Clark-Subic segment became operational.

With the full commercial operations of the entire stretch of the toll way, travel time from Subic to Tarlac is reduced from two hours to a mere 65 minutes; or 40 minutes from Clark to Subic and 25 minutes from Clark to Tarlac. From the North Luzon Expressway in Balintawak, travel time to Subic is reduced to one hour and a half.

As approved by the Toll Regulatory Board, toll rates are: P2 per kilometer for Class A vehicles, P4 per kilometer for Class B vehicles and P6 per kilometer for Class C vehicles. Class A vehicles intending to travel the full length of the SCTEx from Subic to Tarlac City will pay the maximum P181 toll fee, Subic to San Miguel P172, and Subic to Concepcion P144.

Motorists using the expressway will realize savings on fuel consumption, reduced cost on vehicle maintenance, comfortable travel and relaxed driving.

The new expressway, considered the backbone of the new economic corridor in Central Luzon, is expected to boost investment, trade and employment opportunities in the region, according to BCDA president Narciso Abaya.
