MRT7 shelved in meantime over Metro mayors’ concerns
By Tina Santos
Philippine Daily Inquirer
First Posted 23:02:00 08/07/2010

Filed Under: Infrastructure, Railway, Government
A DECISION on the proposed Metro Rail Transit 7, envisaged to run from Quezon City to Bulacan, has been deferred by the Regional Development Council-National Capital Region (RDC-NCR) after some Metro Manila mayors raised concerns about the project.

During the RDC-NCR organizational meeting held at the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) office in Makati City on Friday, the MRT7 project was referred to the council’s committee on infrastructure development and social development for review and a more thorough discussion.

The move came after Valenzuela City Mayor Sherwin Gatchalian and Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista asked the project proponent to allow the local government units (LGUs) to have a say in the project, particularly the location of terminals in their cities.

According to Mario Miranda, a consultant of Universal LRT Corp. Ltd., the firm that holds the contract to build the train line, they need the RDC-NCR clearance before construction can start.

“We need to get that RDC clearance because we have to show that to the banks and to the lenders and be able to say that here are LGUs all saying the same tune (sic), that this project is a go,” Miranda told reporters.

He added that the proponent was given 18 months by the government to complete financial closure or provide proof that money was at hand before it could start construction.

Miranda added that deferment of the project approval would result in its delay.

“But we will still hang on as long as we can. We submitted our proposal in 2001 and until now we haven’t gotten the government’s approval yet. I’ve spent so many years working in the government; one virtue I learned is patience. Just be patient,” he said.

The $1.2-billion MRT7 project seeks to build a combined 45-kilometer of road and rail line from the Bocaue exit of the North Luzon Expressway (NLEx) to the MRT3 at North Avenue-Edsa.
Philippine railway sucks!

A news about High Pilapil type of embankment about more than 2 meters in taal bocaue area. i am very sure that this is not a major prob. must have a sewage system there. they insisted to construct a viaduct type just like in malolos area. actually, same goes to balagtas area, it is a HIGH PILAPIL (they called it in the news) for about 2 meters high, but there is no major probs, or concerns in the area.

id like it better here in NORTHRAIL forum than in Philippine Railways Thread.
They always bash people there, even if you just say your opinion, they dont want you telling the GOVERNMENT members of the slow pace of the PNR and its projects... id choose this thread over that BIAS CONTROLLED "brotherhood" thread... (not everyone ok, there is just a group over int that thread that SLAMS WHAMS and DRUBS REAL and TRUE facts vs PNR)...

Posting Northrail in World section is kinda embarrassing. Northrail is like the most low-tech of all the railway system being discussed here

Is there any truth to a rumor that says Northrail, originally designed to be standard gauge, will now be changed into narrow gauge to be compatible with the rail tracks of the PNR?

Also, to all Filipino Forumers, please post here in English as this Thread is located at the World Forums Section.

No demolition in Lucena rail station–PNR

LUCENA CITY, Philippines – A Philippine National Railways official has assured the neighborhood in the train station here that their houses will not be demolished once the Manila-Bicol train trips resume next month.

“There is no cause for worry. Unless the house lies within three meters from the center of the nearest track, in which case, it will have to go,” said engineer Mauricio Enggay, head of the PNR engineering crew that has been preparing the tracks from Calamba City in Laguna to Gumaca, Quezon section.

Rommel Perez, president of the PNR neighborhood dubbed Purok Pagkakaisa, said most residents whose houses had been tagged for demolition in several surveys by railway men in the past were worried that they would be evicted.

Enggay clarified that the relocation area was still under study.

Last week, the owners of some residential structures at the PNR crossing here demolished portions of their structures that were inside the three-meter limit.

“The PNR men came here and measured the distance between my newly constructed store and the train tracks. When they found out that it was beyond the limit, I voluntary demolished that part,” said the store owner.

The PNR neighborhood residents expected that with the return of the regular train trips, they would go back to selling foods and drinks and cargo handling for train passengers.

But Enggay said they would no longer be allowed to sell their wares inside the train.

“Every trip has a canteen in one of the coaches ready to serve the passengers,” he said.

The Manila-Bicol train run is scheduled to start on the third week of September in time for the Feast of Peñafrancia in Naga City.
