If that's a thread in the China forums, then they are free to use Chinese all they want. But if it's in the international forums, like where this thread is, I doubt it. Look at the China railway development news thread in this forum: even the Chinese people there use English!

And Filipinos, who are supposedly BETTER English speakers than are Chinese, don't want to use English where they're supposed to?

Thank you for the updates.

It seems like every infrastructure project is moving slower under PNoy's watch. :/

Gov’t to renegotiate NorthRail contract

Filed Under: business, Government, Transport, Railway

THE DEPARTMENT of Transportation and Communications has ordered a review of its contract with the Chinese construction firm hired to rehabilitate the NorthRail train line that will connect Metro Manila to provinces in Northern Luzon.

As a result of rising costs and slow progress, Transportation Secretary Jose de Jesus said the government wanted to renegotiate the project with the Chinese contractor.

The 80-km railroad, a flagship program of the Arroyo administration, will link the northern flank of Metro Manila with the Diosdado Macapagal International Airport at the Clark free port in Pampanga.

From an original budget of $421 million, the NorthRail project’s cost has now gone up to $621 million.

“The project cost has gone up but the project’s scope has decreased,” De Jesus said, noting that even with the inflated price, the train line would have fewer stations than what was originally planned.

De Jesus also noted the slow progress of the project, which the previous administration said was caused mainly by problems in right-of-way acquisitions.

He said the expected completion date of the first phase of the project, a 42-kilometer train line that will connect Caloocan City to Malolos City in Bulacan, was earlier moved to 2013, but even that revised deadline might not be met.

The succeeding phases will go all the way to the Clark free port to bring the total length to more than 80 kilometers.

De Jesus said the department would meet with the project’s Chinese contractor Sinomach (formerly known as China National Machinery and Equipment Corp.) to find ways to lower the cost of construction and hasten completion.

NorthRail, which is funded by a loan from the Chinese Export-Import Bank, is just one of the many projects being reviewed by the DOTC to make sure that there are no anomalies and that the construction of these projects are fast-tracked.

Other projects include the improvement of Manila’s Ninoy Aquino International Airport (Naia) terminals, the expansion of the Diosdado Macapagal International Airport (DMIA) in Clark and the extension of the Light Rail Transit line 1 to Cavite.

northrail is dead

Nonsense Project

Perhaps the government should just let the project proceed and then go after all those who received 'kickbacks." Make crime does not pay. High hopes for the Aquino administration

Yes, it will be okay the next month. Actually, Photobucket resets bandwidth quotas on the 26th of every month, regardless of when you reached your quota.

This could have been another heavy railway.

Japan to finance MRT 7

by Jeremiah F. de Guzman

Japan has expressed interest to finance the long-overdue Metro Rail Transit Line 7 project that stretches 22 kilometers from North Avenue in Quezon City to San Jose del Monte, Bulacan province, the Transportation Department said Monday.

“JBIC [Japan Bank for International Cooperation] has been informed and has acknowledged the project and is prepared to consider an export credit,” said Transport Undersecretary Glicerio Sicat in an interview.

Sicat said JBIC’s positive response is a good development as the government has been pushing for the MRT 7 project. He said the government aimed to close the funding requirements of MRT 7 by October this year from the original schedule of June.

Universal LRT Corp., the consortium that offered to build the rail system, earlier said it would look at foreign loans either from JBIC or the Asian Development Bank to fund the MRT 7 project.

Universal LRT earlier said about $320 million of the project’s total cost would come in the form of equity and $900 million in borrowings from multilateral institutions.

The Transportation Department said it approved the design changes and the increase in the project cost of the train system by over $200 million due to higher cost of construction materials.

The construction of MRT 7 was supposed to start in February after Universal LRT bagged the contract.

The consortium, however, failed to raise a financing package due to the global financial crisis.

Diversifying conglomerate San Miguel Corp. earlier said it was finalizing an agreement with businessman Salvador Zamora to acquire his majority interest in Universal LRT.

Zamora bought majority control of the Universal LRT consortium in 2008 from Israeli businessman Eli Levin, the rail project’s original proponent.

“Our agreement is for us to buy in up to 51 percent,” San Miguel chairman and chief executive Ramon Ang earlier said.

The consortium comprises 12 companies, with Zamora owning 63 percent of the group.

MRT 7 will have 14 stations traversing North Avenue, Elliptical Road, Commonwealth Avenue, Quirino Avenue and San Jose del Monte.

The government under the original contract proposed to pay the proponent about $108 million a year in capacity fees for the next 20 years.

Investors will also get 70 percent of the net passenger revenue minus operation and maintenance expenses, and an 80 percent sharing in advertising and commercial development income.

The government will receive a 30-percent revenue share on net passenger fares, 20 percent on advertising and commercial development fees and 20 percent on income derived from real estate development.
