All-Asia pro­poses P1-B re­hab of San­g­ley run­way

Sun.Star Pampanga - - BUSINESS! -


Re­sources and Recla­ma­tion Corp. (ARRC) said Wed­nes­day it has pro­posed to re­ha­bil­i­tate the San­g­ley air­port in Cavite to help de­con­gest the cap­i­tal's main air­port.

AARC has sub­mit­ted to the gov­ern­ment its pro­posal to re­ha­bil­i­tate the run­way for P1 bil­lion, Wil­son Tieng, ARRC pres­i­dent and chief ex­ec­u­tive said.

"We can fin­ish the project in one year and will cost only P1 bil­lion. This is a low-hang­ing fruit with sig­nif­i­cant ben­e­fits to the public since it will al­low NAIA [Ni­noy Aquino In­ter­na­tional Air­port] to in­crease its run­way move­ments from 40 take­offs and land­ings per hour to around 60," he said.

An ad­di­tional run­way will boost tourism, trade and commerce aside from giv­ing the fly­ing public more flight op­tions, he added.

"We have the funds and the tech­ni­cal sup­port we need for this project. We hope to get the ap­proval of the gov­ern­ment soon enough," he said.
