I suggest that people should chill for a sec and stop Cause if you guys don't there will be some brigging and banning happening and we would hate to see that!

Anyway, since this thread is in the world section, please use English for discussion. I'm sure Filipinos are fluent in this language.

You guys just don't know when to shut up.

Anyway, for all this is worth, here are some old northrail news.

New NORTHRAIL chief vows to meet construction target

A mechanical engineer with an extensive and expansive entrepreneurial and engineering practice recently assumed the top post of the North Luzon Railways Corporation (NORTHRAIL), a government entity overseeing the construction of a modern railway from Caloocan to Clark in Pampanga.

President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo named John Paolo Hizon chairman and chief executive officer of NORTHRAIL, replacing Secretary Edgardo D. Pamintuan.

Prior to his appointment at the helm of NORTHRAIL, Hizon served as a member of the board of directors of the railway firm for five years.

“We welcome the appointment of JP Hizon and we look forward to working with him,” said NORTHRAIL president and chief operating officer Zoilo L. Andin Jr. “He is very familiar with the undertaking and can provide the continuity in fast-tracking the construction of the modern railway project that will benefit the residents of Central and Northern Luzon.”
A self-made businessman, Hizon had been the founder of several business firms and has also served as chairman or board member of several ventures.

Hizon vowed to continue the momentum set by his predecessor whose innovative measures enabled the railway firm to gain significant headway in construction work. “I will work harder and I am confident of achieving our targets because I will be working with the same capable and dedicated team of engineers and support staff that Secretary Pamintuan had worked with. Together, we can put trains running our tracks in 2012!” the new chairman said.

NORTHRAIL scored significant achievements following the introduction of innovative measures that include simultaneous segmental construction method which tapped the skills and competence of Filipino sub-contractors who worked simultaneously at different sectors of the railway project. These measures resulted in a very substantial 17% accomplishment in civil works for 2009 alone from 6.85% when the project was suspended in February 2008. The 2009 achievement exceeds the cumulative accomplishments since construction work commenced in 2007 on the Caloocan to Malolos stretch or Phase One of the project.

The NORTHRAIL Project
A major undertaking of the Philippine government, the NORTHRAIL Project aims to build a fast, reliable and an efficient railway system in Central and Northern Luzon.

The railway system is expected to further enhance the development and growth potential of the said areas.

Implementation of the NORTHRAIL Project will be undertaken in several Phases. Phase I of the Project is an 82-kilometer rail line between Caloocan City in Metro Manila and the Clark Special Economic Zone (CSEZ) in Pampanga.

Other phases of the NORTHRAIL Project are:
-- Phase II: Branch line to Subic Economic Freeport Zone
-- Phase III: Extension to Bonifacio Global City
-- Phase IV: Extension to San Fernando, La Union

Initial construction in Phase I of the Project will be the 32-kilometer stretch, or Section 1, between Caloocan and Malolos. Section 2 will be from Malolos to Clark Special Economic Zone (Mabalacat.)

This Caloocan to Clark alignment will maximize the use of the Philippine National Railway’s Right-of-Way of the Main Line North, which has been abandoned for decades.

Phase I of the NORTHRAIL Project will provide commuter train services from Caloocan City in Metro Manila to the DMIA at the CSEZ. One of the components of the efficient mass transport system is an airport train system between Manila and the CSEZ.

Alignment of the NORTHRAIL Project will be linked with Metro Manila’s SouthRail and MRT 3 Extension Systems. Commuters from areas north of Metro Manila will have direct transfer to various SouthRail, LRT and MRT lines for destinations anywhere in Metro Manila

Tracks and Trains
The NORTHRAIL Project aims to build a world-class railway system, with trains capable of traveling at 100-130 kph, and with upgrading potentials for higher speeds and capacities.

Trains will be traveling on a double track, allowing two trains to travel in both directions. This is a major upgrade from the single track in the PNR right of way.

The NORTHRAIL Project adopted double track for the whole line as it provides the flexibility in operation, safety and increase in capacity. Widely used in many countries, the double track will enable NORTHRAIL to attain operational efficiency and capable of meeting future needs.

The railway path will generally be at-grade or on embankment. There will also be sections on viaduct. To allow unimpeded operation of this high-speed train service, there will be no at-grade road crossings. Grade separation will be provided at major road crossings.

This would mean faster, safer and efficient means of travel. It means easing the roads of traffic especially during rush hours. It likewise means greater capability to transport commuters to and from their provincial residences to their workplaces in Metro Manila.

how do I go by public transport to the northrail construction? I want to take photos.

I will be coming from monumento.

By the way, I don't fully understand how this will end up at caloocan station (sangandaan) of the PNR. That area is blocked by several concrete buildings and structures. How will they connect it? It seems to me like its an impossiblity.
