The government will push the implementation of 50 billion pesos worth of national railway projects throughout he country as a vital infrastructure component for national economic development.

This was revealed by Transportation and Communications Undersecretary for Railways Gene A. Mamondiong during a railway planning workshop attended by experts from eight countries at the Development Academy of the Philippines in Pasig City.

The workshop was jointly sponsored by the House Committee on Railways and Ro-Ro headed by Misamis Occidental Rep. Augusto Baculio and the Philippines Muslim Economic Development Council (Phimedec).

About 80 participants from the government and the railway industry sector, including railway experts from Japan, China, Austria, Germany, France, Thailand, United States and the Philippines, joined the workshop.

Other members of Congress who attended the workshop were Rep. Jose Solis, vice chair of the committee on railways and principal sponsor of the National Railways Act; Rep. Janet Garin of Iloilo and Rep. Hans Señeres.

Mamondiong presented the departments rail projects and programs which he said would build as estimated 6,300 kilometers of railways at a cost of P50 billion pesos.

Among issues tackled during the workshop were the alignment of national railway system; track gauge standardization; Metro Light Rail, Subways and Mag-lev (express train); alternative funding sources and budgetary support; power generating plants for LRTA and MRT; waste to energy plants; the rail legislative agenda and the enactment of a National Railways Act.

This measure will seek tax exemptions for rail infrastructure projects; a road users tax to finance railway projects; the creation of a National Railway Academy and a National Railway Authority and Metro Manila Railway Authority.

VERY nice.
It seems like its a good system. Much neede as Manilla is a very large city and, as I understand, a very congested one.
Also, unfortunatly, the Phillipines are subjected to frequent tropical storms and earthquakes. Elevated an street separated systems are ussually built to bear this in mind. Vancouver's SkyTrain is built to withstand an earthquake of up to 9.3 richeter scale.
How many km does it run??

The LRT-2 trains look very modern. I think the design is Japanese since I saw many trains of this type in Japan.

The only thing I hate about Manila's metro system is you're not allowed to take photos of the inside.

What Manila needs to improve is the ticketing machines, at least have them computerized like HK's MTR, have a smart card system and platform screen doors.

We have a "terrorism/bombing paranoia" .

Remember the imported "magic wand" from Diagon Alley by the security guards. they'll just put their ultra super powerful wooden "magic wand" to your bags then Tada! it will automatically detect if there is a bomb .

very impressive...and good future planning. but imho, city rail transits with pantographs look very messy, they should build one without pantographs, just my 2 cents worth.

The paper said something today about importing some trains from austria. Apparently they were old ones which were not being used and they wanted to ask for them for a minimal amount and refurbish them. Does anyone here in the international forum know what these trains look like . They should be mass transit light rail trains.
