ACCIONA has won EUR 330 million contract to build a section of a new railway line in the Philippines that will link the city of Malolos with Clark International Airport, 80 kilometers north of Manila, the capital. The project is being financed by the Asian Development Bank and it is estimated that construction will take three years. The contract involves the construction of a 6.5-kilometer main railway line, which includes an elevated section, an underground section with cut and cover that will provide access to the Clark International Airport station, substation, and auxiliary facilities.

The rail line will become a key transport infrastructure in the metropolitan region of Manila and is one of the priority projects identified by the Department of Transportation. The project will cut the travel time between Clark and Manila from two to three hours by bus to one hour by train, reducing greenhouse gas emissions by more than 60,000 tons a year.
