The emir of Kuwait may have seen the vast economic potential of three independent toll roads in western, central and northern Luzon linking up with one other and reducing travel time by half. The seamless travel is making Clark Freeport Zone in Pampanga province the perfect logistics hub as originally designed by state planners.
A logistics hub thrive along major toll roads, as the experience in the United States, Europe and other developed countries showed. The completion of the 88.85-kilometer, four-lane Tarlac–Pangasinan–La Union Expressway sometime next year will complete the interconnection of North Luzon Expressway and Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway. It will make Clark the ideal logistics hub from where a company can manage the supply chain and move goods with ease to the Subic port in the west, to the northern gateway in Pangasinan and La Union provinces and to the capital region in the south.
Proponents of the $3-billion Sabah Al-Ahmad Global Gateway Logistics City in Clark Freeport Zone, are rushing the completion of the project that is expected to generate over 300,000 jobs.
The development calls for 177-mixed used projects near the Clark International Airport. Global Gateway Development Corp. is stepping up the completion to take advantage of the Luzon’s three major toll roads.
