NEDA board approves P131.4 billion worth of projects for transportation, energy sectors
 

The government approved five new projects in transportation and the energy sectors totaling P131.4 billion as it underscores the importance of improving the country's infrastructure to sustain long-term economic growth.

In a statement on Saturday, Communication Secretary Herminio Coloma Jr. said among the NEDA approved projects include the new passenger terminal building at the Clark International Airport, which will be built to meet its expansion requirements.

The project, which costs P15.3 billion, will allow Clark International Airport to accommodate up to three million passengers a year.

The project, to be funded by the government will include the installation of equipment, machineries and facilities.

The NEDA Board also approved the Naga airport development project at a cost of P3.5 billion in Camarines Sur.

The airfield will be reoriented to enable dual-approach landing and takeoff and new airside and landside facilities will be established to meet the growing tourism demand.

The project will be funded through the general appropriations act.

The board also approved the P64.7 billion LRT Line 6 construction. LRT 6 is a 19-kilometer elevated rail facility from LRT Line 1 extension in Bacoor that will go southward through Imus and up to Dasmarinas along the Aguinaldo highway.

The project, which is expected to drastically cut travel time, is a public-private partnership (PPP) initiative.   (full story: 09.05.15)
