BCDA was vested by Republic Act 7229 with the power, among others, to construct and maintain infrastructure and utilities in correlation to its mandate on urban development, which includes roads, water and sewerage system, underground power distribution system and medium-rise housing units for socialized or active-military officer’s housing and military facilities .
One of BCDA’s finest achievements in infrastructure is the SUBIC-CLARK-TARLAC EXPRESSWAY (SCTEX) the country’s longest expressway at 93.77 kilometers. Its construction began April 5, 2005 and was fully operational on April 28, 2008.
The SCTEX was to transform the Central Luzon region into a world-class logistics hub in the Asia-Pacific region through the integration of economic activities in the Subic Bay Freeport, the Clark Freeport Zone, and the Central Techno Park in Tarlac by linking major infrastructures, such as the Seaport in Subic and the Diosdado Macapagal International Airport in Clark.
