Yup. Particularly, Ayala-Alabang and Ayala Southvale Sonera. Also included will be the new mall in Imus, Cavite called The District and Alabang Town Center.

Operator asks gov't OK to proceed with Skyway Stage 3
By KRIS BAYOS
December 18, 2011, 4:13pm

Quote:
MANILA, Philippines — The operator of the Metro Manila Skyway System (Skyway) Sunday urged the government to allow it to proceed with the construction of the elevated expressway that will connect the North and South Luzon Expressways, even if another proposal for a connector road recently surfaced.

This, as the Citra Metro Manila Tollways Corporation (CMMTC), concessionaire of Skyway, said it is financially ready to finance the construction of Skyway Project Stage 3, which will run from the Buendia Exit of Skyway 2 to Balintawak in Quezon City, where the North Luzon Expressway (NLEx) starts.

CMMTC officials earlier disclosed that it is ready with at least $1.5 billion to invest in infrastructure development in the Philippines. This will cover investment for Skyway Stage 3, which will cost about P22 to P24 billion and Skyway Stage 4 or C6, which will run from Parañaque to Antipolo, and will cost about P28 billion.

A source in the CMMTC said they are ready to undertake the project but the issuance of notice to proceed from the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPHW) is getting in their way.

“We are financially ready to pursue the projects. We can even do the Skyway Stages 3 and 4 simultaneously but we do not have the notice to proceed yet,” the source said.

Industry sources said the delay is likely because of an alleged proposal by the Manila Pacific Tollways Corporation (MPTC) to build a similar NLEx-SLEx connector road through an elevated road over the tracks of the Philippine National Railways and will run from Valenzuela to Buendia.

But a source from the CMMTC claimed MPTC’s 13.5-kilometer connector road is different from Skyway’s 14.2-kilometer Stage 3 since it will predominantly traverse the median of C3 Road and Araneta Avenue and cuts through the busy thoroughfares of Central Manila in Osmeña Highway, Quirino Avenue, Sta. Mesa, Araneta Ave. and A. Bonifacio Road.

The source dismissed the allegation that pursuing both the Skyway Stage 3 and the Connector Road will be redundant as it will cater different motoring markets.

“We don’t mind if government allows both CMMTC and MPTC to undertake their projects. It is even better for both projects to be implemented since it will be both beneficial to the motorists, without government spending for it,” he said.

The source said the government could no longer scrap the Skyway 3 project just because of the proposed Connector Road since it is part of the Skyway project concept approved by the government in 1995.

I guess you are right that it did cost much, much more than widening roads. But why did they do it? Maybe, government planners ought to think out of the box and impress the taxpayers as compared to saying this and that and the costs are too high, IMHO.

Thanks Parchie for the comment. It's hard to reply to this one since you left us without figures to compare. (e.g. Cost of tunnel in Cebu vs. Economic cost of road widening)

Anybody can Google it. AFAIK, the tunnel cost was around P1.625B or thereabout, if i'm not mistaken. It is shy of a kilometer in length (0.97 km). Regarding the total economic cost of doing a road of the same number of lanes as that road tunnel, I am sorry I don't have data as to how much premium it does for commuters and road users as I don't have the numbers to crack an estimated figure with.

But for purposes of having a figure to begin with, we can make guesses (a guess is defined as an incorrect figure). The costs of acquiring the road lot for a 4-lane on-grade road (2 lanes every way), doing a simplistic calc, 3.5 meters per lane X 4 lanes + a 1.5 meter easement at both sides of the road will give you a total road width of 17 meters, assuming a P25,000 per sq. meter, totals to P425M per kilometer. Add to that the cost of road construction of about P2.5M per km and we get roughly, say P430M per km!
You see, even if we assume that the foregone costs brought about by ease motorists get using the bypass tunnel to be equal to the construction cost of widening roads, P860M will still be lower than the P1.625B spent doing the tunnel. You are correct to say that it costs much more doing the tunnel than road widening! But the government did the tunnel for some reasons other than how people have appreciated it now!

Thanks for sharing the figures. I think I will agree with you on that one. However, I will be reserved on this, as I wish we could also present to other readers some empirical data stating that the taxpayers are more than willing to support projects, be they expensive but efficient.

two lanes (1 lane of 4m each side with sidewalk) per km = PhP10-15M

thats our cost for private projects (which means no SOP or bribery)

Thanks for giving a realistic cost.

welcome.

governments prefer megaprojects because it adds excitement and good for publicity. but we have yet to see an economically successful megaproject.

most of the time talaga cost overruns.

NEDA-ICC Okays P22.2B Projects
By EDU LOPEZ
February 25, 2012, 3:26am

MANILA, Philippines — The Investment Coordination Committee-Cabinet Committee (ICC-CabCom) of the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) board has recently approved four road and transportation projects worth P22.29 billion to be funded through official development assistance (ODA).

First is the Baler-Casiguran road project that seeks to improve road access within the province of Aurora. It involves completion of the road’s remaining 50.95 kilometers unpaved road out of the 116.37-kilometer Baler-Casiguran road section.

“This road improvement project will also ensure interregional connectivity between Regions II and III, promote tourism, and facilitate trading, commerce and delivery of local farm products within Aurora and to major market areas in Luzon,” said Socioeconomic Planning Secretary Cayetano W. Paderanga, Jr.

The road completion will link the following municipalities of Aurora: Dilasag, Casiguran, Dinalungan, Dipaculao, Ma. Aurora, Baler, and San Luis. This will also connect Cagayan Valley road, Quirino, and Isabela to the province of Aurora through the existing Dinadiawan-Maddela-Cordon interprovincial road.

The project, which the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) spearheads, is being proposed for loan financing from the Korea Economic and Development Cooperation Fund (EDCF). Second is the improvement for the 27.75 kilometers unpaved section of the Samar Pacific Coastal Road, which includes the construction of three bridges. It will link the coastal towns of Northern and Eastern Samar and complements and completes the circumferential road loop for the province.

“The Samar Pacific Coastal Road project will enhance the development of potential agricultural lands and fishing grounds of Northern and Eastern Samar and facilitate movement of goods and services through access to major arterial road links. This will push the area’s full economic potential and reduce its high poverty incidence,” Paderanga said.

The project, which is part of DPWH’s updated Public Investment Program (PIP) and the Comprehensive and Integrated Infrastructure Program (CIIP), will also be financed through Korea EDCF loan.

Vehicle charge to fund streetlamps, footbridges
by Alena Mae S. Flores
Manila Standard Today

The Road Board, the implementing arm of the Motor Vehicle User’s Charge, is installing LED streetlamps and setting up more pedestrian footbridges in Metro Manila in its mandate to upgrade national roads to international standards and reduce electricity costs.

The Board, in a statement, identified Roxas Blvd., Commonwealth Ave., Quezon Ave. and EDSA for the installation of LED streetlamps. It is also completing the required number of pedestrian footbridges in Parañaque and Quezon City and in the provinces of Cavite and Laguna.

The Road Board was created in 2000 to manage the use of the collection through the Land Transportation Office.

The charge is meant for the “adequate maintenance of the national and provincial roads so as to ensure satisfactory service to road users, economic road transport operations, and the preservation of road assets.”
