PRESS STATEMENT

The Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA), builder and owner of the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX), said continuous heavy rains since the past two months have taken their toll on the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX) resulting in potholes and a slight depression on portions of the Subic-Clark segment of the SCTEX.

The repair works are under the Defects Liability Period with the cost to be shouldered by the main contractor.

Further, the BCDA is hiring the services of an independent geotechnical engineer to review the situation and provide a long-term holistic solution on areas where soil erosions occurred.

The BCDA said that repair works will be done during favorable weather conditions. To do otherwise will just be a futile attempt and may result in inferior quality of repair and waste of resources.

The BCDA has instructed its interim service provider, the Joint Venture led by Tollways Management Corporation (TMC), to institute the proper measures to ensure safety along the said areas.

In the meantime, the BCDA advises motorists to take the necessary precautions and observe the proper speed limit while driving along the SCTEX.
