CLARK FREEPORT, Pampanga – Metro Pacific Investments Corp. (MPIC) plans to use the 84-kilometer North Luzon Expressway (NLEx) to accommodate a high-speed train that will link the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) and the Diosdado Macapagal International Airport (DMIA) here.
The plan is to construct the new railways between the lanes of the NLEx because an earlier proposal to construct it parallel to the railway was scrapped due to some technical problems.
Clark International Airport Corp. (CIAC) said the project will be called “Express Airport Trains” which will have at least three stops in Metro Manila.
CIAC said that using the proposed trains, it will only take about 45 minutes to transport passengers from Clark to Manila, and vice versa. (Mark Anthony N. Manuel)
The planned stopovers are Balintawak or near TriNoMa or SM North in Quezon City; Manila like Dimasalang or University of Sto. Tomas; and Makati at Buendia Avenue. (Mark Anthony N. Manuel)
