MANILA, Philippines- The Department of Transportation (DOTr) has recently inked a deal with privately-led NLEX Corp. for the erection of columns for the second phase of the Philippine National Railways (PNR) Clark project.

In a statement late Tuesday, the DOTr said it has signed a memorandum of agreement (MOA) with NLEX, which will be responsible for erecting the columns “in the shoulders and median island” of the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway to facilitate the seamless operations of both the expressway and the railway.

“Ang ating MOA ngayon ang tunay na makikinabang dito ay ang milyun-milyong Pilipino—kung saan ang mandato ni Secretary Tugade at DOTr, kasama na ang PNR ay bigyan sila ng maginhawang pamumuhay,” DOTr Undersecretary Giovanni Lopez said.

(“This MOA will help millions of Filipinos, which is part of the government’s mandate to provide a prosperous life.”)
