The 147-kilometer NSCR Project will have a total of 35 stations and 51 commuter train sets and seven express train sets serving the rail line.
The project aims to provide ease of mobility and connectivity within the National Capital Region, CALABARZON and Central Luzon, and is expected to generate direct and indirect employment to a total of 110,000 people during its construction phase.
DOTr signed last January Contract Package 04, which covers the electro-mechanical systems and track works for the first segment of NSCR, while Contract Package NS-01, which includes the electromechanical system for the Malolos-Clark and Blumentritt-Calamba sections, was signed last March. – PortCalls
