When it comes to transportation, Philippines comes a little behind if compared to other Asian countries like Taiwan, Japan and South Korea. But through a Public-Private Partnership Program with a Chinese company, a high speed train system may be coming soon in the Philippines.
According to Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) Chairman Martin Diño, the bullet train is going to be constructed between Clark in Pampanga and Subic in Zambales. And he also stated that this project will be discussed by President Duterte during his visitation in China on October 18-21.
“It is our first bullet train. Hopefully, magawa agad (to be done soon),” Diño added.
Bullet trains are known to run at speeds of 200 to 300 kilometer per hour, and will provide a great value when it comes to time consumption for it will cut lot of time when traveling from Subic to Clark and vice versa.
