Philippine Department of Transportation starts building 6 stations under PNR Clark Phase 1 Project

The groundbreaking of the PNR Clark Phase 1 Project was held last February 15 in Malolos, Bulacan.

MANILA – The Department of Transportation (DOTr) will start on Monday the construction of six stations under the Tutuban to Bocaue segment of the North-South Commuter Railway (NSCR) Project.

In a statement Friday, the DOTr said the stations that will be built are Solis, Caloocan, Valenzuela, Meycauayan, Marilao and Bocaue which comprises the first package of the Philippine National Railways (PNR) Clark Phase 1.

PNR Clark Phase 1, a 37.6-kilometer mass railway transportation, is one of the flagship projects of the Duterte administration implemented by the Department of Transportation (DOTr) and the Philippine National Railways (PNR).

It will have 13 train sets, composed of 8 cars each, which will be running at a maximum speed of 120 kilometers per hour.

PNR Clark Phase 1 will have a total of ten (10) stations, namely, Tutuban, Solis, Caloocan, Valenzuela, Meycauayan, Marilao, Bocaue, Balagtas, Guiguinto, and Malolos station; and will house a depot at a 14-hectare lot in Valenzuela City.

Once completed, this project will reduce travel time between Manila and Bulacan from one (1) hour and 45 minutes to just 35 minutes, serving approximately over 300,000 passengers daily.

PNR Clark Phase 1 will be seamlessly connected with the PNR Clark Phase 2 (Malolos-Clark) and PNR Calamba, forming one integrated commuter railway system that will serve commuters traveling to, from, and within NCR, Region III, and Region IV-A.
