Skills Training Intensification Program

This program will focus on conduct of skills training for cottage


industries and entrepreneurship to benefit the unemployed
women/mothers, handicapped residents and out-of-school youths
of the barangays.

G.

LAND USE IMPLICATIONS

This sub-sector would require allocation of land preferably within


the growth areas for various proposed social welfare facilities such
as day care centers or skills training centers.

CHAPTER 3.0

INFRASTRUCTURE
3.1

INTRODUCTION
Infrastructure sector plan covers construction, acquisition and
upgrading of the governments physical assets such as roads,
bridges, transport facilities, drainage and sewerage, and waste
disposal system. It also covers public utilities like energy, water,
and communication facilities including their distribution network.
Inadequate infrastructure is one of the major problems faced by the
city. Several government structures were not originally designed to
accommodate the prevailing high level of population. The urban
road network can hardly carry the present traffic volume. Busy
streets are narrow and some are poorly paved. Existing terminals,
parking

areas

and

drainage

facilities

are

inadequate

and

substandard.
Bridge projects are being implemented parallel with the roads
improvement plan. Most of the local bridges in the city need
constant rehabilitation.

The city has to deal also with the prevailing problems on lack of
power, domestic water and telecommunication facilities. Power and
water generating and distribution systems have to be improved.

3.2

MAJOR GOAL
Majority of citys inhabitants provided access to adequate,
dependable and safe water supply, adequate and dependable
power supply, reliable and adequate communication and transport
facilities; and the urban dwellers, efficient and environmentalfriendly drainage, sewerage and garbage disposal systems.

3.3

TRANSPORTATION
EXISTING SITUATION
The transport system of Tarlac is presently provided with a land
transport network consisting of a major trunkline and arterial roads.
Motor vehicles are the chief means of transportation used in the
city. From the Central Business District (CBD) to the Barangays,
jeeps and tricycles are used while from the town proper to other
municipalities and cities, buses, mini buses, and jeepneys serve the
riding public.
3.3.1 ROADS
Being an inland city, Tarlacs principal mode of transporting goods
and services within the city and to neighboring towns is by land. It is
provided by a land transport network consisting of a major trunkline
and arterial roads.
The table below shows the approximate length of roads by
administrative classification and pavement. It should be noted that
majority of the roads are considered narrow by national standards.
Most roads are only 6.00 meters in width, the equivalent of
standards for Barangay roads. The Callejons connecting the interior
lots are only 1.00 meter wide. The total road length of Tarlac City is
indicated in the tables below, with almost the entire road length
paved with either asphalt or cement.

At present, the city has a total road network of 96.709 kms. (Not to
include Barangay Road and Farm to market road)

These are

classified as follows:
National Road
the city.

- 54.109 kms. of concrete road that passes thru

This is the main access of the city to the adjacent

municipalities.
Provincial Road - 34.231 kms. of concrete and asphalt road that
connects the different Barangays to the national road.
City Road - 8.369 kms. road maintained by the local government
and within the urban area.
Barangay Road - 378.089 kms. road made of concrete, asphalt
and gravel maintained by the local government.
According to the Central Luzon Regional Development Plan 20022004, development of transportation facilities plays a pivotal role in
the achievement of the Central Luzon Growth vision. It is also vital
to the growth and development of the areas north of Luzon since
the region is a natural gateway between the National capital region
and the rest of Northern Luzon via the Cagayan Valley Road
(CVR), Manila North Road (MNR), and the North Luzon
Expressway (NLE).
Through the development of arterial transportation facilities, interregional

and

intra-regional

access

is

enhanced

and

complementation of planned and developed growth center within


the region can be achieved. For instance, the physical connection
(via a tollway) of the Subic Bay Freeport Zone (SBFZ), Clark
Special Economic Zone (CSEZ), and Luisita Industrial Complex
(LIC) will promote synergism in several ways, i.e., CSEZ and LIC
can make use of SBFZs seaport facilities for its bulk cargo shipping
requirements while SBFZ and LIC can make use of CSEZs
international airport for its fast air cargo requirements, while SBFZ
may use either CSEZ or LIC for its inland containerized cargo depot
expansion requirements, etc.
Strategic projects for implementation under the transportation
sector (Central Luzon Regional Development Plan, 2002-2004)

1. SUBIC-CLARK-TARLAC Toll Road


-

90 km. Limited access express way that will connect


SBFZ, CSEZ, and the LIC; Three leading economic zone
in the country that will virtually form a Mega Economic
Zone

Will function both as a North-South backbone and major


East-West Lateral connection to the region enhancing
regional and inter regional mobility

2. NORTH LUZON TOLLWAY EXTENSION from Tarlac City,


the NLE will be extended to Rosario La Union providing a fast
lane alternative to the congested section starting from Tarlac,
Pangasinan and La Union.
3. TARLAC-IBA-ROAD East West Lateral Road connection that
would connect San Jose, Tarlac, and Botolan, Zambales.
It is also suggested and recommended that in order to complement
the north-south links and to satisfy intra-regional transport
requirements, existing major east-west lateral connections (I.e.
Gapan-San Fernando-Olongapo (GSO), Tarlac-Sta. Rosa and
Tarlac-Guimba must also be improved.
One significant on-going project which when completed will give the
province comparative advantage vis--vis stronger inter-municipal
linkage, is the construction of a circumferential and radial road

system traversing the outermost parts of the province. Said road


networks will cover portions of Bamban, San Jose, Mayantoc,
Camiling, Moncada, Pura, Ramos, Victoria, La Paz, Concepcion
and Capas
Addressing traffic congestion in the Central Business District
(CBD), improvement of Barangay roads at rural areas, and
development of a farm-to-market road network was given priority as
stipulated in the List of completed works (Infrastructure). Refer to
list of completed projects.
GOAL
1. Adequate and quality urban, rural access and farm-to-market
roads transport system, provided and maintained.
OBJECTIVES
1. To provide adequate and quality network of roads to
accommodate a variety of vehicles in the urban and rural areas.
2. To improve the road condition of the city to enhance traveling,
safety and convenience.
TARGETS
1. Completion of the Carangian By-Pass Road linking the Aquino
Boulevard and Romulo Highway by 2002.
2. Construction of South-Eastern and Southern By-Pass Roads
completed by 2002-2004
3. Construction of Rizal Street Extension (Kent Lumber) @ CutCut 1, Tarlac City completed by 2003
4. Road widening of Tarlac-Sta. Rosa Road about 2.00 meters on
both side in anticipation for the completion of Subic-Clark-Tarlac
Tollway by 2004-2006.
5. Completion of on-going concreting of Barangay roads in various
Barangays, and Farm-to-Market road completed by 2005, at
least 5 kms. Barangay roads per year.
6. Regular rehabilitation / maintenance of city barangay roads
undertaken yearly.

STRATEGIES
1. Expand road network within the planned new urban sub-center
2. Open alternative roads that will connect the national roads to
other barangays and municipalities without passing the old
urban core.
3. Improve and/or open more farm-to-market roads and interconnecting areas.
4. Conduct continuous monitoring; undertake needed rehabilitation
of all roads in due time.
5. Prepare a feasibility study on construction of mixed road use for
motorized and non motorized transport.

PLANS AND PROGRAMS


Road Improvement /Development Program
The program is designed to improve and complete the road
network in the city. Road development projects are focused on
decongesting the old urban core and supporting agriculture and
industries.

LAND USE IMPLICATION


There is the need to provide for roads-right-of-way of proposed
roads including those required for drainage and sewerage lines. No
further development should be allowed in areas already identified
as within the future street lines.
Future street lines of various existing and proposed roads should
be determined and enforced accordingly.

GOALS
1. Quality bridges provided resulting in improved transport of
goods and mobility of people including the provisions on
hydrology (river peak flow) and sedimentation as in lahar
outflow on lahar areas, thus maintaining as maple vertical
clearance under the bridge which is often neglected in the
design.
OBJECTIVES
1. To upgrade local and national bridges.
2. To construct and maintain quality of bridges.
TARGETS
1. National bridges to be upgraded by DPWH
2. By year 2010, local bridges will be constructed
that traverse rivers and creeks.

STRATEGIES
1. Conduct regular monitoring / assessment to ensure good quality
of bridges.
2. Promote synchronization and complementation of all agencies
concerned

in

upgrading/rehabilitation,

construction

and

monitoring of all bridges.


PLANS AND PROGRAMS
Bridge Development Program
This program is aimed to provide the city with quality bridges
resulting in improved provision of basic services:
Construction of local bridge under the Presidents Bridge Program
(Austrian-assisted Bridge Project) Phase II.
Construction of bridges traversing the Bulsa River that will link
Brgy. Tibagan & Brgy. Balanti, traversing the ODonnell River that
will link Brgy. Armenia & Brgy. Balanti and along the proposed
Southern By Pass Road that will link Brgy. Maliwalo & Brgy.
Binauganan.
LAND USE IMPLICATION
The land use requirement of a bridge will be considered along with
that of the road of which it is a part.

3.3.3 RAILWAY
In the past, a railway system was operational in the province with
service area reaching as far as Manila and La Union. However,
this transport system was neglected and ultimately abandoned in
1968. Since then, what is left of its railroad tracks have been
vandalized and destroyed and its right-of-way occupied by
squatters.
3.3.4 MODE OF TRANSPORTATION
Motor vehicles are the chief means of transportation used in the
city.

Jeepneys and tricycles are the main mode of public land

transportation. From the Central Business District (CBD) to the

barangays, and other short trips within the city, jeepneys and
tricycles are used, while from the town proper to other
interconnecting neighboring municipalities and cities, buses, minibuses and jeepneys serve the riding public. There are also a
number of private vehicles in Tarlac City.

3.3.5 TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT


Land transport for short distance routes are provided by tricycles
and jeepneys. In 2001, there are 7,612 public motor vehicles based
in the city. Tricycles and jeepneys are the major transport modes in
the city proper. Tricycles serve some rural barangays too. With
prevailing growth in the number of vehicles plying the locality, roads
have become inadequate. They have also contributed to the
deterioration of many sub-standard roads.
The daytime-population of the city increases rapidly coming from
different parts of its hinterlands including by-passers. Being the
center of government, education, health and trade in the province,
Tarlac City attracts a number of transients to come to the city; and
this increases the demand for transportation. This also translates in
the higher demand for more roads, terminals, parking areas and
sidewalks.

Tricycles are the major contributors to traffic congestion. The


frequency of tricycles plying the major streets is obviously higher
than that of passenger jeepneys / buses and private vehicles
combined. Jeepneys and buses use private vacant lots located
along busy streets in the CBD and even along the main road, as
temporary terminals.

Tricycles compete with jeepneys for

passengers while traveling along the highways. Tricycles and other


vehicles that park on road shoulders and roadways contribute traffic
heavy and medium traffic density occurs in the main roads of the
city core which would also include traffic congestion at McArthur
Highway fronting Luisita Industrial Complex. This is so because of
the unspecified Loading and Unloading area of public vehicles and
lack of pedestrian and/or sidewalk. This is usually experienced by
commuters during school days 7:30 8:30 am and from 5:00
6:00 pm.
As regards to Traffic Management and Control, in 1986, the then
municipality have initiated a Local Transport Improvement Scheme
for a typical Urban Center which aims to address the Improvement
of local transport system in urban centers whose transport facilities
have considerably deteriorated due to rapid urban growth.
However, implementation was halted, after the term of Mayor Jose
Macapinlac.
The city instead have adopted traffic rules and regulations/policies,
re-routing, color coding scheme, Tricycles registration, and other
apprehension for violators in coordination with the different
representatives of drivers and operators, organizations and
associations, as means of managing existing traffic situation.
In 1998 a Common bus/jeepney terminal located along Aquino
Boulevard, Barangay San Nicolas, was completed and is now
operational. The facility will decongest the old urban core,
encourage new investment close to the market and boost the local
economy. Tricycles have designated parking areas per section per
barangays, color-coded, per establishment.

With the new administration, alternate routes have been developed,


concreting of shoulders, improvement of sidewalks and pedestrian
lanes, and widening of roads, which would still help ease traffic
congestion. Although there has been an existing policy designating
traffic flow per route/type of vehicles entering the city proper, the
occurrence of out-of-line operations PUVs is prevalent.
The City Planning and Development Office of Tarlac City have
proposed to come up with a Comprehensive Traffic Management
Plan, which would undertake studies of the existing traffic
conditions and Traffic Impact Assessment.

GOALS
1. Traffic condition in the urban area improved

OBJECTIVES
1. To decongest the old urban core
2. To improve traffic management on all areas in the city.

TARGETS
1. Review of past and existing studies on transportation and traffic
in the study area
2. Assessment of the existing traffic situation in the study area.
3. Assume existing traffic laws and regulations
4. Projection of traffic generation and transportation system with
respect to development plans of Tarlac City
5. Assessments of the Impacts of projected traffic generation.
6. Formulation of appropriate traffic management measures and
transportation development programs
7. Provide recommendations for the integration of the proposed
measures and programs of the local transportation system.
8. Geometric improvement and installation of modern traffic lights
at major intersections within the urban area.

STRATEGIES
1. Inventory of the physical condition of involved local traffic area.
2. Collection of data on the condition of traffic on selected sections
and intersections.
3. Identification of the proposed major developments in Tarlac City
as well as in the immediate vicinity.
4. Projection of traffic generated and attracted by Tarlac city.
5. Preparation of the Comprehensive Traffic Management Plan
report.
PLANS AND PROJECTS
1. Upgrading of F. Taedo Street @ Barangay San Nicolas in front
of Osias Colleges.
2. Concreting of unpaved shoulder and sidewalk along McArthur
highway (San Sebastian to Sta. Cruz w/ exceptions) and city
streets.
3. Construction of concrete over pass pedestrian lane @ Tarlac
State University, Barangay San Vicente.
4. Construction of covered walkway along the periphery of the
institutional district.
5. Installation of traffic signalization facilities and geometric
improvement of major road intersections within the urban area.
6. Improvement and widening of major thoroughfares and
concreting of unpaved local roads.
7. Construction of by-pass roads and circumferential road utilizing
the NIA Service Roads.
LAND USE IMPLICATION
With the central bus and jeepney terminals already available, any
land use regulation that will help ease traffic flow will also address
the concern of this sub-sector.
Street design providing for off lane loading and unloading areas will
enhance traffic flow.

WATERWORKS
EXISTING SITUATION
The most common source of water supply at present in the City is
its ground water and developing springs. The types of existing
water system are the shallow / deep wells found in all barangays.
This type of water system is used by all barangay residents to
obtain water for laundering, drinking, bathing and other domestic
uses. The Local Waterworks and Utilities Administration (LWUA)
with office located at Barangay Poblacion, is providing a Level III
water system.

The water supply is potable for human consumption. It has also


sufficient pressure for 18 hydrants and is capable of supplying
industries and manufacturers in the central core. Despite the
adequate supply, not the entire quantity is distributed. This is
largely due to pipe leaks.
The Local Waterworks and Utilities serve about 12,400 households
in 22 different barangays as of 1999
The need for a viable system of water distribution for the populace
particularly the urban areas and expanding water works system
serving all households in the Barangays are being addressed
respectively. Under the Infrastructure Project monitoring, among
the projects completed are the purchase of water pumps,

installation of 25 units shallow wells for various barangays, and the


improvement of Water System, Tarlac Central District, Sto. Cristo
E/S, Brgy. Sto. Cristo, Tarlac City.

Obviously, water supply is not evenly distributed in all areas in


Poblacion. Inefficiency of the system has been attributed to the
following major constraints:
Most pumps operate at a very low efficiency. Some production
meters and valves are defective. Water quality deteriorates due to
over-used water pipes.
There is also a need to improve/expand the existing spring well and
developments of new spring sources in the rural barangays.
Priority improvement outside the urban growth area will be focused
on the identified secondary growth center, growth nodes in the rural
barangays.
In meeting these demands, water resources management is
recommended for sustainable development.

GOAL
1. Adequate, dependable, and safe water supply provided.
OBJECTIVE
1. To provide improved water services to the urban and rural
communities.
TARGETS
1. To fully serve all households in barangays covered by LWUA by
the year 2010.
2. To construct and rehabilitate water pumps in all barangays
within the period of 2002-2010.
3. To provide improved water services to the urban and rural
communities
4. To expand water connection coverage to cover the urban
growth area.
5. To preserve springs and other potential sources of water supply
in the rural barangays.
6. To manage supply and demand for water in an effective manner
that provides for the basic requirements of urban and rural
development, while paying due regard to the carrying capacity
of the natural ecosystem.
7. Improve pumping efficiency to reduce energy consumption of
pumping facilities.
8. Construction of overhead tank with pressurized pump at
designated areas for commercial, industrial, agricultural and
institution. Completed by 2008.
9. To protect groundwater stock from the startling groundwater
pollution.
10. Protection of existing water installation from human influenced
distribution (e.g. sabotage and poisoning).
STRATEGIES
1. Conduct public awareness campaign on water conservation and
preservation of existing water sources.
2. Expand adequate, dependable and safe water supply within the
built-up areas.

PLANS AND PROGRAMS


1. LWUA Expansion services to households still unserved
2. Construction / Rehabilitation of water pumps in all identified
areas undertaken by Local Government.
3. Development of separate water system in rural barangays which
would include deep wells, water cistern and laying pipes to
supply water to the barangay residents
4. Rehabilitation of existing distribution network to minimize
unaccounted-for-water as well as the expansion of service
coverage through additional pipeline.

LAND USE IMPLICATION


Areas identified for long term water supply should be reserved for
the purpose. Regulations for the protection of rivers and springs
should be aptly provided in the zoning ordinance.

barangays are being served by the Tarlac Electric Cooperative I
(TARELCO I). Tarlac Electric Enterprises Inc., a private franchise,
covers the city of Tarlac with 76 barangays. Aside from NAPOCOR
power line, this company has its own generating plant in Brgy.
Baras-Baras which serve as an alternate power supply in cases of
failure of NPC lines. Electrical services in the City of Tarlac come
from Tarlac Electric Enterprises, Incorporated.

2. Provide yearly appropriation for street lights.
3. Promote energy efficient systems

PLANS & PROGRAMS


Energy Development Program
The program is aimed to provide efficient power service to cover
remaining unenergized barangays in the city.
The development of power and electrification as a precondition to
economic growth should be given needed attention to every
municipality. In Tarlac, full concentration of electricity is necessary
to barangays that are not yet fully served. Likewise, proper power
allocation must be given priority especially in areas having
industries to induce greater productivity thereby opening more
employment opportunities in the city as well as accelerating the
socio-economic upliftment of the urban and rural populace.

LAND USE IMPLICATION


Right-of-way for power lines (along with other utilities) should be
adequately provided especially for new roads.

GOAL
1. Provision of adequate / efficient communication facilities as one
of the citys major instrument in transmitting information and
ideas relevant to socio-economic development provided to the
majority of the citys inhabitants.

OBJECTIVES
1. To improve and rehabilitate the existing communication
facilities.
2. To encourage the telephone company existing in the city to
extend its services.
3. To improve postal services.
4. Improve peoples access to telecommunication facilities in the
city.

TARGETS
1. Provide telephone services to prospective subscribers within the
period 2002-2010.
2. To hire additional mail carriers to meet the standard and to
establish additional postal stations in various barangays within
2002-2010.
3. To purchase motorcycles for mail carriers to improve mobility.

With the present communication facilities found in the City of


Tarlac, it could be said that it has an efficient communication
services/means within and outside the city.

However, some

barangays can only be served thru the services of the Philippine


Postal Office, of which considering their distances from the town
proper, the present number of letter carriers is inadequate to meet
the needs of the populace. Likewise, the city needs to improve the
telegraph facilities to serve the people.

PLANS AND PROGRAMS


Mass communication services must be provided adequately for the
city to hasten its transmittal of messages and information among
the social, economic and government sectors as well as private
ones.

This can be affected and initiated by the installation of

transmission lines and employment of associated services by the


concerned entity/private telecommunication company. The hiring of
additional mail carriers must be prioritized by the postal office for
the immediate delivery of mail of the populace.
