BCDA speeds up repair works on SCTEX Clark-Tarlac portion

The Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) Tuesday said its field workers are rushing the completion of rectification jobs on certain portions of the Clark-Tarlac segment of the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX).

“BCDA issued this advisory to inform motorists about the presence of heavy equipment in some spots of the SCTEX that might have posed a bit of inconvenience among the motorists,” said Robert Gervacio, program manager for operational support services and spokesman.

Gervacio explained that the repair and rectification measures were being undertaken at no extra cost to the government-run company because the toll road project “is still within the warranty period.”

“Our agreement with the contractors includes a warranty clause where the road builders are under obligation to implement repairs of BCDA-identified defects at no cost to BCDA,” he said.

The bottom line, according to Gervacio, is to ensure that the quality and integrity of the SCTEX, the country’s newest and longest toll road at 93.7 kilometers, is well preserved “for the overall safety of motorists and the public in general.”

Gervacio added that no less than Japan-based General Manager Haruki Torii of Hazama Corporation — the Japanese main contractor for the 43.27-km Clark-Tarlac Segment of the SCTEX, committed to BCDA President Narciso Abaya during a recent courtesy call that the rectification works will be completed by the end of August.

At the same time, the BCDA disclosed that more roadside signages will soon be installed in vital segments of the SCTEX, particularly at the Matatalahib-Maliwalo portion.

“We have always been sensitive and appreciative of feedbacks from the public insofar as our projects are concerned, with the SCTEX being our single largest project to date,” the BCDA said.
