PRIME Metro BMD Corp. (PrimeBMD) is building a trumpet interchange and access bridge that will connect the Montclair estate development of Robinsons Land Corp. in Pampanga to the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEx).
The company said in a statement on Wednesday that the Montclair interchange linking the estate to SCTEx has international standard on and off ramps and an eight-lane toll plaza. Adjacent to the interchange is the 323-meter road pavement and the 62-meter Montclair access bridge.
According to PrimeBMD, the progress of the interchange construction is at 75% and is estimated to be finished by December this year, while completion of the access bridge is aimed by 2022.
Construction works to be done for the access bridge include retaining walls, fences, and utilities infrastructure along the roads such as storm drainage, sewer line, water line, and electrical service works.
PrimeBMD Chief Executive Officer J.V. Emmanuel A. de Dios said the project, once completed, will boost economic growth in the region and give ease of connection for potential residents and locators of Montclair.
“We are committed to investing in and supporting infrastructure projects with sustainable outcomes through industry expertise and value creation. We strive to be the partner of choice in delivering critical infrastructure in the Philippines and the region,” Mr. De Dios said.
PrimeBMD is a joint venture between Enrique K. Razon, Jr.’s Prime Infrastructure Holdings Corp. and the BMD Group, which claims to be one of the largest privately owned construction firms in Australia.
The company is a licensed heavy civil and industrial contractor that is involved in the construction of ports, harbors and marine infrastructure, roads, bridges, highways, integrated resort and casino, and land development, among others. — Revin Mikhael D. Ochave
