New tollway eases flow of people, cargo—Clark league

Clark businessmen and Angeles City residents now take the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway for their transport requirements en route to Manila and Subic Bay.

The chief executives of a major investors’ league in Clark Freeport Zone confirmed their preference to use the 94-kilometer stretch for its time efficiency, highlighting reduced travel time as among the advantages of using the state-owned expressway.

“The expressway has made business and other activities easier not only for Clark investors but also for Angeles City residents and commuters,” Clark Investors and Locators Association Inc. president Jeannie del Rosario Ng said.

Since the tollway became operational in July 2008, a lot of local tourists from Angeles City now go to Subic Bay to see the theme parks and other attractions in the economic zone, Ng said.

CILA is among the leading business organizations, which played a big role as a moving force for the inflow of 781 investors in Clark. The association has been in existence for the past 10 years and has consistently been at the forefront in addressing aspirations and concerns of the locators.

“We are using the interchanges to travel to and from Manila to avoid traffic at the McArthur Highway,” Philippine Sundt Construction and Development Co. president David Marr said.

Nanette Qua of Amerton Global shared the same experience and said, “It helps reduce our travel time. It is the best alternative route to avoid the congested Dau area.”

“The south entrance has been a great help for commuters to travel from North Luzon Expressway to SCTEX then to Clark that fast,” said Mike Sozon of Clark Liberty Warehouse Club Inc. He suggested the integration of Nlex and SCTEX toll tag.

The Bases Conversion and Development Authority opened the Clark South Interchange last April 5. Last Dec. 23, the Clark North Interchange became operational. Both interchanges provide direct access to and from Clark and the SCTEX. Manila Standard Today
