Yeah I've just watched in full the more than 1 hr. press-con related to this by the relevant agency heads and they said that the Subic-Clark as well as the Clark-Manila railways will be "twin" priorities inline with their intent to develop the area into a major logistics hub in the north and at the same time to decongest Manila's roads. In fact the new countrywide railway system that they plan to roll out and finish during Duterte's term is quite extensive as it also includes Mindanao (at last).

Govt eyes $1-b airport, railway
posted November 17, 2016 at 11:55 pm by Bloomberg
By Siegfrid Alegado and Cecilia Yap

The Philippines plans to award at least $1 billion of contracts to build an airport and a railway to transform a former US military base into a commercial hub as part of President Rodrigo Duterte’s push to distribute wealth outside congested Manila.

The Bases Conversion and Development Authority wants these and other major infrastructure projects for the area to be awarded by the second half of 2017 and for most to be completed as early as 2019, its chief executive Vince Dizon said in an interview in Makati City. The authority will decide by the first quarter of next year whether to invite bids to build or operate the infrastructure, or do both, he said.

“We want the investment community to know that this government isn’t just about addressing crime and drugs,” Dizon, 43, said Nov. 11. “We’re also here to build, build and build.”

Duterte, who won the presidential election six months ago, is lifting infrastructure spending to a record and allocating resources away from the capital, Manila, where traffic and transport logjams cost the economy at least P2.4 billion ($49 million) a day.

His government is attempting to fast track development of the planned Clark Green City, which was carved out of the former Clark Air Base used by US forces during World War II. It received just one bid last year to develop part of the proposed alternative capital city. At 9,450 hectares (23,000 acres), Clark Green City would dwarf the main financial district of Makati in metropolitan Manila, home to the nation’s stock exchange and banks’ headquarters. Building infrastructure outside the capital is key to attracting investment and boosting the country’s growth potential to as much as 9 percent, Rosemarie Edillon, deputy director general at the National Economic and Development Authority, said Thursday.

The state body will invite bids for a new P15-billion airport terminal in Clark, north of Manila, according to Dizon. It will include a new international terminal that will double Clark airport’s current capacity to 8 million passengers under the first phase of a 30-year plan developed by Aeroports de Paris, he said. It will also invite bidders for some projects identified during Duterte’s state visit to Beijing in October. These include a cargo rail line costing as much as $700 million, running from Clark to the Subic coastal area northwest of Manila, an industrial park and facilities for telecommunications and utilities.

Quote:
Duterte’s government may choose to fund infrastructure projects through loans obtained at cheaper rates and then offer contracts to companies to run them, Dizon said. Under Aquino, the preference was to let private companies handle the projects at the onset, and such an arrangement remains an option, the executive said.

CGC is at Camp O'Donnell which is about 20 km away from Clark Airport so I don't think the aviation authority will complain if they'll build something really tall there.

Clark airport, Green City get initial ₱6B
25 November 2016

Quote:
CLARK—The “Build, Build, Build” mantra of the Duterte administration is not all talk, at least where it concerns the Clark International Airport (CRK) and the Clark Green City (CGC).

Alexander Cauguiran, president of the state-owned Clark International Airport Corp., signed a memorandum of agreement with the Department of Transportation on Monday for the release of ₱2.89 billion to implement the civil works required for CRK’s new terminal.

-snipped-

Of the ₱2.89 billion, ₱330 million would be spent on a detailed engineering design from which the terms of reference for the new terminal project would be made, Cauguiran said.

The rest of the amount would be spent on taxiways, a ramp and an apron for the new terminal in the 1,500-hectare civil aviation complex.

House OKs proposal to create national sports training center

Quote:
MANILA, Philippines – The House Committee on Youth and Sports Development recently approved a proposal to provide the best possible training opportunities for national athletes by creating a National Sports Training Center.

The unnumbered substitute bill, also known as the "National Sports Training Act," is a consolidation of House Bill Nos. 535, 545, 1907 and 3447 authored, respectively, by Reps. Ruwel Peter Gonzaga (2nd District, Compostela Valley), Mark Aeron Sambar (Party-list, PBA), Bellaflor Angara-Castillo (Lone District, Aurora) and Marlyn Primicias-Agabas (6th District, Pangasinan).

The committee, chaired by Rep. Conrado Estrella III (Party-list, ABONO), earlier created a technical working group composed of members of the panel and headed by Rep. Michael Romero (Party-list,1-PACMAN) to consolidate the four bills.*

The bill seeks the creation of the National Sports Training Center at the Clark Green City, located within the Clark Special Economic Zone in Pampaga.

Besides the Chinese, Japanese and South Koreans, Malaysian investors are also bullish about prospects in the Philippines, offering to help develop the sprawling Clark Green City, the country’s chief economist said yesterday.

Socioeconomic Planning Secretary Ernesto M.

BCDA fast-tracks road build for Green City project
BY RAADEE S. SAUSA, TMT
ON APRIL 20, 2017

Quote:
THE Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) is fast-tracking road construction for the development of the ongoing Clark Green City project, BCDA President and Chief Executive Officer Vince Dizon said on Tuesday.

“We’re building the infrastructure, we’re fast-tracking it with DBM [Department of Budget and Management]. The road construction is ongoing…First, we do the road that connects Green City to the airport, that’s the most important,” Dizon told reporters on the sidelines of the Dutertenomics Forum held at the Conrad Hotel in Pasay City.

In May 2014, the National Economic and Development Authority Board approved the Master Development Plan for Green City, which will feature a commercial and/or financial center while also hosting industrial, institutional and residential zones.

“The priority now is to finish the road. The road should be done by 2018, and then simultaneously we’re going to start building the sites for commercial center and housing. The city will be completed by 2022,” Dizon said. The 15-kilometer road project will be tendered by September or October this year, he said.

Meanwhile, Dizon said that the creation of a new, world-class passenger terminal at the Clark International Airport (CRK) will start by the fourth quarter of 2017. The new terminal, with an 8-million visitor capacity, is set to be finished by 2020.

CRK is projected to increase passenger capacity by 8 million per year from the existing 4.2 million passengers per year, upon completion of Phase 1, for a total of 12.2 million passengers per annum. The ultimate target is 80 million per year upon completion of the fourth phase.

With Filinvest already constructing the first 288 hectares in Clark, we could be seeing something similar to their 244-hectare project in Alabang area:

P300-B Manila-Clark railway project set to start
June 23, 2017

Quote:
The construction of the first part of the P300-billion railway project that will link Manila to Clark is expected to start any time soon as the Department of Transportation (DOTr) is scheduled to mark the first four stations of the project on Monday.

Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade said the DOTr will already hit the ground running for the development of PNR North Railway, which involves the construction of a train line that would span more than 90-kilometers from Tutuban to Clark.

“This Monday, we will start the first marking of the first part of the Clark Railroad System. We will mark four to five stations that will span from Tutuban to Malolos. We will mark that on Monday,” Tugade said during a roundtable discussion with editors of the Manila Bulletin.

Siemens goes green
4 July 2017

Quote:
[snipped]


Joe Kaeser Chief Executive Officer Siemens Global

Eye on ‘Clark Green City’

Siemens is all too enthusiastic to be back again in the business negotiating table – with it setting its sight this time on the US$14 billion “Clark Green City” that is envisioned to be the country’s pivot of smart urban development – one that will showcase harmony of industrialization goals while safeguarding the area’s ecosystem. The proposed venture sits on a 9,450 hectare property within the Clark Special Economic Zone, a former base of the United States Air Force northwest of Manila.

During his visit to the country, Mr. Kaeser sat down for meetings with top officials led by President and CEO Vivencio B. Dizon of the Bases Conversion Development Authority (BCDA), the government agency manning the re-development plan for the Clark Freeport zone – and he had discernibly taken notes of what could be feasibly pursued to ratchet up development efforts in the planned ‘green city’.

He has clear sense of what viable infrastructures must be installed in the area as well as the smart energy solutions and security systems that must go with these.

Mr. Kaeser knows for sure these are not just the ones springing from the “ivory tower of life”, but options and solutions grounded on technologically and economically feasible pathways.
