The construction of the Php734-billion Bulacan Airport will push through this year, an official from the Department of Transportation (DOTr) said.

“Yung proyekto po, ‘yun po matatapos ho ‘yun pagkatapos ng anim na taon. Pero definitely, the construction will start po this year,” he added.

Lopez added that San Miguel Corporation’s (SMC) Php11 billion performance bond will be forfeited in accordance with the contract signed between SMC and DOTr.

The groundbreaking of the New Manila International Airport project was supposed to happen last December 2019 or January 2020.

The airport will be built on a 2,400-hectare property in Bulakan, Bulacan.

It is expected to decongest Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) as it can accommodate over 200 million passengers annually.
