Nope!
This is the PNR, which is like the national railways.

According to ABS-CBN: The rail is now standard-gauge from narrow and electric from diesel.

President to inspect 107-hectare gov't housing project in Laguna

Manila (4 November) -- President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo will conduct today an inspection of the 107-hectare housing project in this town for the residents of the province, relocated informal settlers and slum-dwellers from Metro Manila.

The President is scheduled to arrive at 2:30 p.m. at the National Housing Authority (NHA), the sponsor of the housing projects in Barangays Dayap and Sto. Tomas and this town.

She will be welcomed by Calauan Mayor George Berris, members of the Sangguniang Bayan, Laguna Bishop Leo Droma, Calamba parish priest Fr. Rene Iriga, NHA General Manager Federico Laxa, Undersecretary for Religious Affairs Nena Valdez, Dayap barangay Chairman Roberto Ranilo and Sto. Tomas barangay Chairman Apolinario Catapang.

Laxa and a Caritas Manila representative will brief the President on the status of the NHA housing projects.

The President may opt to drop by at the on-going medical and dental mission of the PAGCOR Serbisyo Muna caravan and government intervention programs and social services action desks under the auspices of the NHA, TESDA, DOLE, DSWD, TRC, LWUA, DepEd and the local government units (LGUs).

The NHA-Calauan housing project is a government relocation project for informal settlers and slum-dwellers living along creeks and riverbanks of flood-prone areas in Caloocan, Malabon, Navotas, Valenzuela (CAMANAVA), Calauan, nearby towns and other places in Metro Manila.

The total area of the three housing projects is 107.223 hectares. Sites 1 and 2 are situated in Barangay Dayap while site 3 is in Barangay Sto. Tomas.

Site 1, which has a total land area of 58.86 hectares, has 1,013 housing units, 500 of which are already occupied.

Site 2 is divided into 961 lots at 40 sq. m. per lot; Site 3 has 3,896 lots at 40 sq. m. per lot.

Families living in Munti railways relocated

Philstar
Thursday, November 6, 2008

In line with the government’s Southrail project, about 147 families living along the railways in Muntinlupa City recently relocated to the Southville III Resettlement site located inside the NBP Reservation in Barangay Poblacion.

The city government’s Urban Poor Affairs Office (UPAO) said these families were transferred through the help of the Local Inter-Agency Committee which is being composed of different government agencies, private sector and representatives from associations of affected families.

The transfer will continue until all the affected families covered by the Phase 1 of the project is completed. Phase 1 covers Barangays Sucat, Buli, Cupang and Alabang.

The relocation of the said families is necessary under the government’s Southrail project, which calls for the massive rehabilitation of the line of the Philippine National Railways.

According to UPAO, there are 3,749 families that are qualified for relocation.

Presently, there is a total of 1,841 housing units at Southville that are ready for occupancy, and 2,126 housing units which are now half-completed.

Mayor Aldrin San Pedro who is closely coordinating with the National Housing Authority (NHA), said electricity and water supply have been made available in the housing units before the families were transferred. “These services are vital to every family,” he added.

The mayor said a total of 7,035 housing units will be built at Southville III.

He said the city government is closely coordinating with other government agencies and the private sector for the construction of a public market, police outpost, day-care center and school at the housing site.

San Pedro together with Vice President Noli de Castro, concurrent chairman of the Housing Urban Development Coordinating Council, and NHA General Manager Federico Laxa recently inspected the housing project.

Railroad settlers relocated to NBP

By Marlon Ramos
Philippine Daily Inquirer
First Posted 01:44:00 11/06/2008

MANILA, Philippines – A total of 147 families, or more than 700 people living near the railroad tracks in Muntinlupa City, moved into their new homes Wednesday inside the New Bilibid Prison Reservation in Barangay Poblacion.

Muntinlupa Mayor Aldrin San Pedro said the relocation was in preparation for the national government’s Southrail project.

The $932-million Southrail project seeks to link Laguna province to the Bicol region through a high-speed train service. It will be funded by a loan from China.

The families, former residents of Barangays Sucat, Buli, Cupang and Alabang, were transferred to Southville III, a government resettlement site within the NBP reservation.

San Pedro assured residents that they would be provided with basic services like a regular supply of water and electricity.

The mayor said they facilitated the relocation with the help of the Local Inter-Agency Committee, which is comprised of various government agencies, the private sector and barangay officials.

The city government’s Urban Poor Affairs Office said at least 3,749 families, composed of more than 18,000 individuals, were also due for relocation.

“The transfer will go on until all the affected families under Phase 1 of the project are relocated,” San Pedro said.

He added that 1,841 houses at Southville III are ready for occupancy while another 2,126 will be finished in the next few months. A total of 7,035 houses will be built at Southville III to accommodate displaced families from other areas.

“The city government is closely coordinating with other government agencies and private sector for the construction of a public market, police outpost, day care center and school at the housing site,” the mayor added.

PNR rehab affects 30,000 family-settlers By Jason B. Neola

December 11, 2008 6:44 pm by pna

NAGA CITY, Dec. 11 — Rehabilitation of the Philippine National Railways (PNR) will require the eviction and relocation of some 30,000 families nestled inside the 15-meter clearance on both sides of the PNR mainline south rail from Calamba, Laguna to Legazpi City in Albay.

This is the problem being tackled by the Community Organization of the Philippines (COPE), a national government organization, undertaking social preparations in anticipation of the resumption of the PNR's mothballed repair and rehabilitation of the Bicol south line, once government funds are made available to implement the project.

PNR's rehabilitation from Laguna to Bicol and the construction of new line towards Matnog, Sorsogon was scheduled to start in 2005 and completed in 2011.

But it was put on the wayside following recent political developments that had seen alleged questionable big-time loan deals with foreign investors, specifically China-based financial institutions.

Jun de la Torre, COPE assistant regional coordinator said they have strengthened their social preparation efforts in favor of the railway settlers by collaborating with the Bicol Urban Poor Coordinating Council (BUPCC), headed by Lorna Chavez, to ensure that the rights of these affected settlers would not be derailed when the PNR rehabilitation project starts in the near future.

The project, once it rolls off, is estimated to cost P52.19 billion, of which P35.15 billion will be for repair of railways from Calamba to Legazpi and the construction of a new railway from Legazpi to Sorsogon.

The remaining P17.3 billion will be allocated for clearing of the 15-meter clearance on both sides of the railway.

This means the eviction of the encroaching 30,000 families and the provision of relocation sites with available basic infrastructures and services.

De La Torre said they would press for adequate standard of living and housing for the affected settlers as identified by the Commission on Human Rights.

This would involve, he said, the settlers’ legal security of tenure in the new site, availability of services, materials, facilities and infrastructure, affordability of household financial cost in the new site, habitability, accessibility, acceptable location, and cultural adequacy.

BUPCC's Chavez said, in undertaking social preparations, they have adopted the “Kaantabay sa Kauswagan” or urban poor program of the Naga City Government as model.

She said Naga City's program was slowly being adopted, by Legazpi City in confronting the issue of PNR illegal settlers.

She said security of tenure and availability of basic services were two of the key elements that the illegal settlers would need to start a new life in their new homes.

The HUDC will support the housing needs, while the NHA is mandated to identify habitable relocation sites.

PNR sources said many foreign private contractors have shown interest in undertaking the multi-million railway rehabilitation project.

But these contractors are turned off by the huge number of illegal settlers along the railways which becomes a complex problem to tackle.

Travel time of 14 hours from Sorsogon to Manila via the Maharlika Highway would be reduced to 6 hours once the PNR south line has been fully rehabilitated, PNR sources said.

The Calamba-Legazpi line spans 483 kms of railways while the proposed Legazpi-Sorsogon (Matnog) line covers a distance of 135 kilometers.

The Caloocan PNR depot will also be dismantled, and its major facilities relocated to the Legazpi City PNR station.

The station will have a stumbling yard, dormitories and maintain the station buildings throughout the south line route. (PNA)

that's great news!!! your english is very good.

i just hope that the housing relocation would be multi-level so we could conserve land. 103 hectares is huge and i hope that these families would pay for it or rent at least. give away is a big no-no!

!!!

it is nice to know that the government is taking into consideration the importance of having a national railway system. it is a noted fact that it is the most economical and effective mode to transporting people and goods. the initial investment is quite huge but the benefits would later counter-balance this. i just wonder when will the time come (if it does come) when the government would also consider laying out tracks from manila to cagayan valley; considering that cagayan valley is one (if not the leading and the most reliable) of the top agricultural produce sources of the country.

Construction work on the 82-kilometer North Luzon Railways Corp. (NorthRail) project, which aims to link Caloocan City to the Clark Special Economic Zone in Pampanga province, resumed in the first week of February, the company said.

In a statement, NorthRail said its chairman, Edgardo Pamintuan, had reported to President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo at a Cabinet meeting in Clark last Tuesday that “every aspect that would contribute to faster construction work will be explored and employed to cover for the delay of project, which now runs to five years.”

Sources said the first phase of NorthRail project, to connect Caloocan City to Malolos City in Bulacan province, spanning about 42 kilometers, was estimated to cost more than P1 billion.

The succeeding phases will connect the Malolos railway to Clark.

Pamintuan said the Malolos viaduct portion started taking shape following completion of 14 board piles, and faster buildup was expected as work accelerated.

He said problems about design and other engineering details, which contributed to the delay of the project, had been threshed out following “a harmonization workshop conducted among a group of Filipino engineers and their Chinese counterparts during a three-week session in Tanjin, China, last December.”

“One of the several measures adopted for faster project completion was the agreement with project contractor Sinomach (formerly known as China National Machinery and Equipment Corp.) to work together with more Filipino subcontractors,” Pamintuan said.

He said NorthRail’s engineering, executive, and administrative and support staff now reported to an office closer to the project site for better and faster coordination and improved work efficiency.

The five-year delay was also caused by right-of-way disputes and the sustained effort of some individuals to derail the project, he said. With editing by INQUIRER.net
