DOTr moving central operations out of Metro Manila

The Department of Transportation (DOTr) will be one of the first government agency to move outside Metro Manila in a bid to decongest Metro Manila. It will move its main office to Clark Green City in July this year from its central office in Ortigas Avenue, Mandaluyong City.

“We will start moving this July with offices finished or unfinished,” Tugade said during the “Dutertenomics” forum held Tuesday at the Conrad Manila in Pasay City.

Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) President Vince Dizon is urging government agencies to follow suit and move their operations to Clark Green City.

Clark Green City is planned to be a metropolis housing different districts from business, government, education, housing, lifestyle, and nature.

The project covers 9,450 hectares and its entire development will cost around P607 billion which could be funded by the government and private investors.

Clark Green City will be well connected in terms of public transport with airport, railway and expressway.
