I don't think the new president will put a halt on this. What his allies are questioning is that the project costs very high that they don't even see a single pier or track in the area. Now, the story is a lot different: they have to visit the site first before considering it into another congressional investigation.

The best thing to do for the next administration is to continue the project since it will boost economy and trade especially within the central regions of Luzon plus improve traffic and boost transportation accessibility to those living in the northern areas of Greater Metro Manila. Other than suburban rail, improve freight rail as well.

A decision to scrap the project will be a major blow to the development of infrastructure and to The Philippine economy.

That is why the current GMA administration is working on a smooth transition to the next admin to make sure that any developments on the improvement of the country and The Filipino people will be continued.

it's a DMU type of train. so i guesss this is just a commuter type but running in high speed enough to run 60-80 urban areas, 80-120 rural areas.

Yan na ba ang modelo nang gagamiting tren Mr. Ichou napaka modern at mukhang patungo nga sa mabilis sa pag asenso, sana nga bumilis na ang paggawa sa riles kahit first section lang para naman masilayan na natin ang tren at makapag test run na.

no (although i think that was the original plan)... max operating speeds will be around 100-130kph.. but they can always upgrade in the future anyway...

High-speed operation will only be possible if the line is electrified. If I remember correctly, Northrail was supposed to be electrified, but they decided against it last-minute due to, among other things, cost.

If it wasn't for the break of gauge at Caloocan, PNR trains would have been able to run on Northrail tracks smoothly.
