PostSubject: Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEx) - Philippines' Longest expressway   Mon Sep 08, 2008 10:08 am



The Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEx) is a 94-kilometer four-lane expressway north of Manila, in the Philippines. Its southern terminus is at the Subic Bay Freeport Zone in Zambales, it passes through the interchange with the North Luzon Expressway near the Clark Special Economic Zone in Angeles City, and its northern terminus is at the Central Techno Park in Tarlac City, Tarlac.

Construction on the expressway began in April 2005, and opened to the public three years after.[1] To date, it is the Philippines' longest toll expressway.

Construction

The Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway or SCTEx Project started 2005, a project of President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo the longest tollway in the Philippines that connects Subic, Clark and Tarlac. During the year 2007 the project has been delayed. Before 2008 the construction continued and finished.

The expressway is part of the Bases Conversion Development Authority's Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway Project or SCTEP, which aims to connect the ecozones of Subic and Clark and the Hacienda Luisita in Tarlac. The joint-venture of First Philippine Infrastructure Development Corporation, Tollways Management Corporation and Egis Projects, the same concessionaires of the North Luzon Expressway, will handle all the operations and maintenance of the expressway. First Philippine Infrastructure Development Corporation is a subsidiary of First Philippine Holdings, a holding company under the Lopez Group of Companies with core investments in power and tollways, and strategic initiatives in property and manufacturing. The four-lane divided highway is divided into two major sections. The first section, the Subic-Clark section is 50.5 kilometers long; the Clark-Tarlac section measures 43.27 kilometers long. Undertaking the construction for the first section are the Kajima-Obayashi-JFE Engineering-Mitsubishi (KOJM) Joint Venture and the second section under Hazama-Taisei-Nippon Steel (HTN) Joint Venture.

The total cost for the construction of the expressway is PhP 27.405 billion. It was sourced through a loan from the Japan Bank for International Cooperation (JBIC) amounting to 41.93 billion or Php23.06 billion-with an interest rate of 0.95% per annum. The project, supposed to be completed by December 2007, was delayed due to right-of-way issues and slippage fixes.
P22.63 billion of the total project cost represents direct costs such as expenses incurred for the construction of the SCTEX. The indirect costs of P3.34 billion include land acquisition, consultancy services, project management expenses and taxes and duties. Financing costs of P1.23 billion include the Department of Finance guarantee fee and JBIC loan interest during the construction period. Toll Fees are approved by the Toll Regulatory Board (TRB)
