MPTC offers to build NLEx-SLEx 13-km connector road for P17B
Quote:
THE LOCAL INFRASTRUCTURE UNIT OF Hong Kong’s First Pacific Co. Ltd. has submitted a proposal to build a P17-billion, 13-kilometer elevated road that will connect the North and South Luzon expressways.

At a briefing Friday in Valenzuela City, Metro Pacific Tollways Corp. (MPTC), a unit of local infrastructure giant Metro Pacific Investments Corp. (MPIC), announced that it had submitted an unsolicited proposal to the Department of Public Works and Highways to build a new road, which will span from Tondo, Manila to Makati, linking the two expressways.

Once completed, the project, which will be known as the connector road, will cut the travel time between the two highways to as little as 15 minutes from several hours today.

MPTC is building a road to connect North Luzon Expressway (NLEx) to the North Harbor area in Tondo, Manila. The connector road will start from there to reach the Buendia segment of the Metro Manila Skyway, which is an elevated toll road from Makati to Muntinlupa.

With Skyway running over parts and eventually exiting into South Luzon Expressway (SLEx), the proposed road network effectively connects the latter to NLEx.

MPTC’s sister firm, Manila North Tollways Corp. (MNTC), currently operates NLEx. The group also holds a minority interest in the Skyway and is eyeing a substantial stake in SLEx.

If the company’s proposal is accepted, the company said it expects construction of the connector road to start by early next year.

MPTC president Ramoncito Fernandez said the company was in talks with the Japan Bank for International Cooperation (JBIC) for a concessional loan that can cover as much as 70-percent of the project cost.

Let us all hope that the new administration will not "touch" this project. However, things are looking really bleak as Mr Yellow is keen on cutting on Gov't spendings and he might completely shut this project down as part of it.

Yes, EMU has better acceleration than DMU, but of course capital costs are much higher. You need to justify the expense with high passenger numbers. Here in Sapporo, a suburban commuter line (Sassho Line) has long been served by DMU's, only recently have they started to electrify the route because of increasing population in the suburbs. Anyway, a double track line for Northrail will provide adequate capacity for the foreseeable future. They can always upgrade later.

BAD NEWS FOR THE NORTHRAIL PROJECT

Quote:
In his first 100 days, Aquino said, he would create a commission that will review all of Mrs. Arroyo’s projects, especially those that had been tainted with graft.
It's highly likely that the NORTHRAIL project will be on top from among PGMA projects in serious danger of being discontinued and won't see the light of day.
