I would like to inquire if the Malolos Clark Railway Project will push thru. It has been more than 6 months since bidders submitted their bids and no news on its progress have been provided to the public. Has it been canceled?
Being a resident of Malolos who now works in San Fernando, this project is of significant importance to me, particularly CP N-01 to CP N-03.
Any information on the progress of the Malolos Clark Railway project will be appreciated as people in my community are anxious to know if this project will proceed or will just be another promise broken by the govt
