Bulacan Int'l Airport to start construction by October – SMC
A new international airport in Bulacan will start construction in the next three months, San Miguel Corporation (SMC), the company behind the project, disclosed on Wednesday.
Ramon Ang, president and chief operating officer of SMC, said his group has just received the Justice Department’s review on the project. The company bagged the contract for the P734-B airport back in August last year.
Ang said that after this, SMC will have to look for the signing date of the financial closure with financial institutions.
To be known as Bulacan International Airport, it is located in the coastal town of Bulakan, 35 kilometers north of Manila.
It aims to provide a new gateway for the country and ease congestion at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport and traffic in Metro Manila.
