According to ADB website, the project will support the construction of the 51-kilometer (km) section of a new railway line connecting Metro Manila and the regional center in Clark and the Clark International Airport, located in the Central Luzon Region, around 100 km north of Manila. The new railway line will (i) provide affordable, reliable, and safe public transport; (ii) reduce greenhouse gas emissions; and (iii) cut the journey time by half to less than one hour. It is proposed that the project will be financed by a multitranche financing facility with an indicative amount of $2 billion from regular ordinary capital resources.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF ADB
The Accountability Mechanism is an independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an Asian Development Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Accountability Mechanism, they may investigate to assess whether the Asian Development Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment.
