Ang ganda ng SCTEx. Sana malagyan ng ilaw yan buong stretch.
And hopefully mag-materialized yung Tarlac-Pangasinan-La Union Expressway this administration.

North Luzon East Expressway (NLEE)

Quote:

Toll road to collect water, generate power

Philippine Daily Inquirer Juan V. Sarmiento Jr.



It’s a road, a water catchment and a power generator all rolled into one. The proposed North Luzon East Expressway seeks to cut travel time from Quezon City to Nueva Ecija by a third, collect water that can provide a week of Metro Manila’s needs and generate electricity of up to 120 megawatts (MW). These features will make it the country’s first toll road with zero-carbon footprint, says its proponent, Ausphil Tollways Corp. Its first stage of 18.9 kilometers will connect Commonwealth Avenue to Norzagaray, Bulacan. The second stage of 36 km is expected to reduce travel time to Cabanatuan City from Quezon City to just 45 minutes from 2 ½ hours.
It is estimated that the faster travel time would save motorists P1 billion in fuel and maintenance costs in one year. The road itself will become a huge impounding system that will collect and channel water through a series of ponds into the La Mesa reservoir. Before the water reaches the reservoir, it will be filtered by plants to eliminate pollutants.

The road is proposed to be built on the 60-meter-wide right of way where huge pipes underground carry water by gravity from Angat Dam all the way to the La Mesa reservoir in Quezon City. Low-friction turbines are to be installed in the BNAQ6 line where 200-meter sections drop 12 meters, enough to provide head pressure to power a turbine that can generate 5 MW to 10 MW per section. Ausphil plans to build four turbine chambers along the 3.6-m diameter high-pressure steel pipe of BNAQ6.

Ausphil says the turbines can generate electricity that is substantially cheaper than the rates of Manila Electric Co. and may push down the cost of cement by 30 percent. Ricardo L. Penson, Ausphil president and CEO, says that three cement plants in Norzagaray, the initial target market of the road’s electricity, produce 70 percent of the country’s cement. Should the project push through, it can help ease traffic congestion in Quezon City, save motorists time and money, provide drinking water to residents of Metro Manila and generate electricity for industry.

1. WATER CATCHMENT
60-meter-wide right of way of the 18.9-km stage 1 from Quezon City to Norzagaray, Bulacan, equivalent to 114 hectares, will become a collection area.
It will generate, after absorption, a minimum of 15.3 million cubic meters of rain water for the La Mesa reservoir. A 16-meter wide concrete and 44-m wide earthwork design will collect and channel into ponds rainwater all by gravity. The water collected in ponds will go through a swale filtration system using a plant species that produce enzymes to eliminate pollutants in the rainwater. The first 30 to 35 percent of water in the catchment is absorbed into the ground and the rest channeled into a series of holding ponds. When the assigned volume in the ponds is reached, water is gravity-fed or pumped into the La Mesa reservoir or the local water districts.

The initial 114-hectare catchment will cover 7 to 10 days of water consumption of Metro Manila.

3. LOW-FRICTION TURBINES
There will be four turbine chambers along the BNAQ6 aqueduct line (underground, not along the road), which acts as a penstock to the hydro turbines. Each turbine has a 1×5 MW (front) and 1x 2.5 MW (back) tandem or a total of 30 MW initially for four chambers. A 5-MW turbine is to be built in Wawa Dam in Rodriguez, Rizal. One section is 200 meters long with a 12-meter fall or technical head pressure of 4,000 mld or 166 million liters per hour or 2.7 mlm (per minute) on a 3.6-meter diameter high-pressure pipe. The pressure is equivalent to 45,000 liters per second, enough to power 120 MW. Ausphil opted for just 35 MW.

Cheaper
Rule of thumb for generating power:
$1 million/MW
Napocor Angat: $1.34 million/MW
Ausphil: $600,000/MW
Savings: $12 million for four turbines
Initial target market: 3 cement plants in Norzagaray that produce 70 percent of the country’s cement (30 percent of their cost is power from diesel-fed generators). Ausphil says it can probably push down the cost of cement by P30 per bag.



2. ROAD
Stage 1: Commonwealth-Norzagaray
–18.9 km at a cost of P7.25 billion
Stage 2: Norzagaray-Cabanatuan
–36 km at a cost of P4 billion Savings for motorists:
–TIME: 45 minutes vs 2 ½ hours from Quezon City to Cabanatuan
–MONEY (gas and oil maintenance): P1 billion, according to the DENR, at 69,000 vehicles yearly
Carbon footprint: Zero
Unsolicited build-operate-transfer proposal submitted to the Philippine government in 2001. Rights of way from the Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System were obtained in 2003.
Swiss challenge conducted in 2006 and the project was awarded to Ausphil in 2007.
Declared a toll road project by the Toll Regulatory Board in 2009.

Cavite-Laguna Expressway in Southern Luzon

The Investment Coordination Committee (ICC) of the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) has approved the P19.69-billion Cavite-Laguna (Cala) Expressway project, an official of the Public-Private Partnership (PPP) Center said.
PPP Center executive director Cosette Canilao said the ICC approved the project in its meeting on Thursday.
The project will be submitted to the NEDA board for approval, Canilao said in a phone interview.
Public Works and Highways Secretary Rogelio Singson confirmed the approval of the project but said that the NEDA-ICC had sought clarification on the project.
“They want us to clarify a few things which, however, should not change the decision,” Singson said in a text message.
The planned Cala Expressway will link the South Luzon Expressway (SLEx) to the Manila-Cavite Coastal Road.
The project involves the construction of two expressways—one on the Cavite side and the other on the Laguna side.
The Cavite component is a 27.5-kilometer, four-lane highway from the terminus of R-1 Expressway in Kawit to Aguinaldo Highway in Silang, while the Laguna side is a 14.3-kilometer, four-lane at-grade expressway.
The Cala Expressway will be connected to SLEx near Sta. Rosa, Laguna.
In the meantime, the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has yet to publish the invitation to prebid and qualify for the NAIA Expressway project pending the commitment from Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corp. (Pagcor) on the financing subsidy for the project.
“Until we can’t have the MOA with Pagcor, we can’t advertise,” Public Works and Highways Director Rebecca Garsuta said in an e-mail.
The NAIA Expressway project received the approval of the NEDA board on May 30.
The government has so far rolled out three projects under the Aquino administration’s flagship PPP program.
The LRT Line 1-Cavite Extension, Operations and Maintenance Project of the Department of Transportation and Communications is currently under prequalification stage.
The PPP for School Infrastructure Project of the Department of Education is undergoing the bidding process, while the Daang Hari-SLEx Link Road Project of the DPWH has been awarded to Ayala Corp. in December.

Other planned road projcts in Metro Manila and surrounding areas...

More roads in the offing
By Joel E. Zurbano | Posted on July 08, 2012 | 12:03am

As the Department of Public Works and Highways begins to finish up the P430-million underpass along Quezon Avenue crossing C-3 Road (G. Araneta Avenue) in Quezon City, government engineers have started working on another overpass along Mayor Arsenio Lacson Avenue crossing Espana Blvd. in Manila.

“We already finished concreting the bottom (road way) and we are now putting finishing touches,” said DPWH Undersecretary Romeo Momo, adding that the completion of the underpass will clear the way for the proposed Metro Manila Skyway-3, an elevated tollway from Makati City to the Balintawak area in Quezon City, that is expected to be built along the C-3 Road.

The Metro Manila Skyway-3 is meant to connect the South Luzon Expressway with the North Luzon tollway.

DPWH Secretary Rogelio Singson said the underpass was built after studying six engineering options and they chose the one that best conformed with Metro Manila Urban Transport Integrity Study, conducted by the Japan International Cooperating Agency and the University of the Philippines.

“It also offered minimal right-of-way acquisition costs, minimal number of affected building structures, no significant increase in noise pollution and gaseous emissions, no displacement of communities and shortest construction time,” Singson said.

Singson said the project will not be affected by flooding, because aside from its elevated location, the project includes the utilization of water cisterns beneath the underpass. Three units of submersible pumps will also be installed, with 277 liters per second capacity.

Momo said the Metro Manila Urban Transport Integrity Study also envisions the possibility of constructing a four-level interchange at the corner of Quezon Avenue C-3 Road.

The underpass, which already 86 percent complete and expected to be finished next month, will be the first level while the second level will be at at-grade portion. The third level will be Metro Manila Skyway-3 while the fourth level may possibly be the proposed Light Rail Transit-4.

The LRT-4 is a 22.6-kilometer railway that will run along Quezon Boulevard from the Old Bilibid site at the corner of Recto Avenue and Andalucia Avenue in Sta. Cruz, Manila.

The NEDA Investment Coordinating Council gave its first approval for the $1-billion LRT-4 railway back in the 1990 and was supposed to be built by the French consortium Systra, Bouygues and Sofretu, but it has since been dogged by financing problems.

On the other hand, the Metro Manila Skyway-3 project is now under the Swiss challenge system of public procurement where the government will invite third parties to match or exceed the bid offered by the San Miguel Corp.-backed Citra Metro Manila Tollways Corp.

Once review is completed by mid-year 2012, Citra is prepared to implement its concession and construct the project in 30 months.

The Metro Pacific Tollway Development Corp. is also proposing to build another connector road linking the two tollways, passing through the old line of the Philippine National Railways.

I'm surprised that they mentioned MRT4 here. I thought it was scrapped by now.
