Why they chose FS instead of DMCI as a subcontractor? I know the FS is so slow of rebuilding many of SLEx's bridges.

China envoy supports review of North Rail, hopes it would be sped up
By DJ Yap | Philippine Daily Inquirer
First Posted 13:21:00 01/22/2011

MANILA, Philippines – China's top diplomat in Manila said he approved of the government's vision of a more comprehensive railway system in the country, and expressed hope that the North Rail project, which is under review, would soon push through.

Ambassador Liu Jianchao said the Chinese government was looking forward to the completion of a government review of the contract with the Chinese construction firm hired to rehabilitate the North Rail train line that would connect Metro Manila to provinces in Northern Luzon.

“Both sides are hoping that this project will be completed as soon as possible but at the moment, the Philippine government is doing a review on the North Rail and we respect the decision by the Philippine government,” he said at a luncheon at his Makati residence on Friday.

Liu observed that the Aquino government appeared to be formulating a more comprehensive plan for the country's railway system.

“I think the Philippine government is trying to draw a more general plan about the railway system in this country, so we also think that this is also a good idea,” he said.

The government recently cited preparations for the construction of a monorail electric train system on the campus of the University of the Philippines in Diliman, Quezon City, the extension of the Light Rail Transit to Antipolo, Bulacan and Cavite, and a study for a possible rail system in Cebu City.

But first, Liu said, his government was keen on seeing the completion of the North Rail project.

“We'll continue to work with the Philippine government in speeding up the process of the construction of the North Rail, so that the North Rail can really benefit commuters at the end of the day,” he said.

The Department of Transportation and Communications had called for a review of the North Rail project, among other major deals made by the past administration, to address allegations of anomaly.

Its original budget of $421 million had ballooned to $621 million because of rising costs and slow progress, arising mostly from, according to the previous government, problems in right-of-way acquisitions.

The 80-kilometer 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.

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.

North Rail is funded by a loan from the Chinese Export-Import Bank and constructed by the Chinese contractor Sinomach (formerly known as China National Machinery and Equipment Corp.)

MPIC unit eyes LRT, NorthRail

By Dino Balabo, The Philippine Star
Posted at 02/11/2011 6:52 AM | Updated as of 02/11/2011 2:57 PM

MALOLOS CITY, Philippines — Metro Pacific Tollways Corp. (MPTC) said it is open to the possibility of acquiring the government-operated rail transport system, a ranking official said.

Among its prospects include the North Luzon Railways Corp. (NorthRail) and the Light Rail Transit (LRT) Line 1.

“We’re open to it, if there would be an opportunity, why not,” said Ramoncito Fernandez, president and chief operating officer of MPTC.

However, he said the government must first open NorthRail for privatization.

When asked by The STAR if MPTC will make an offer to the government, Fernandez answered: “We would rather wait for government to make its move.”

For his part, Rodrigo Franco, president and CEO of Manila North Tollways Corp., a subsidiary of MPTC that operates the North Luzon Expressway, said NorthRail was designed to be built by the government. After constructing NorthRail that stretches from the city of Caloocan to this city, then to Clark Freeport in Pampanga, it will be operated by the private sector.

“There will definitely be an operation and maintenance company that will operate the NorthRail,” Franco said.

According to Fernandez, businessman and industrialist Manuel V. Pangilinan has expressed interest in NorthRail in relation to the development of the Diosdado Macapagal International Airport (DMIA) at the Clark Freeport.

He said Pangilinan believes that DMIA will only be attractive to foreign airlines if there will be a mass transport system that connects it to Manila in 45 minutes.

Sources at the MNTC said Pangilinan is also interested in operating LRT, in case the government finally decide to open it for privatization.

The source, who asked not to be named, said Pangilinan’s group is considering to make an offer, noting that the business group is in perfect financial health.

Earlier, Pangilinan has earlier expressed interest in the development of expressways that will crisscross Metro Manila. This includes the Harbor Link that will connect Mindanao Avenue to MaCarthur Highway in Valenzuela City, then to C-3 Road in Caloocan City. From there, a 13.4-kilometer connector road that will link NLEX with the South Luzon Expressway will be built on top of the existing old Philippine National Railways (PNR) right-of-way.

The connector road will be elevated and is expected to be completed by 2014.

Before the NLEX-SLEX connector road is completed, the harbor link is also expected to be completed by the third quarter of next year.

“When completed, it will only take about 30 minutes to travel from Valenzuela City to the Skyway in Makati,” Franco said, noting that about a kilometer stretch of the harbor link will be constructed on top of the old PNR right of way in Caloocan City.

Franco said the government is fast-tracking acquisition of the right-of-way for the harbor link and the NLEX-SLEX connector roads.

Aside for the said project, he said that they are also looking forward to constructing an east-west connector road that will connect Manila to its eastern part in Marikina.

I don't understand why these people choose to cross when there is a train approaching. What if they trip on those rocky rail tracks. Will they have enough time to get up and walk away? The train is not that long. I'm sure they can wait another 30 seconds to cross and to ensure that they make it across alive. Mga pasaway...

i have a feeling we'll get the DF11G locomotive... it resembles the train on one of northrail's posters...

from China Railways thread:
Hindi ba't electrified ito? So electrified ang Northrail?

Please use English in the international forums.

Yes, Northrail is currently not electrified. But there are plans to electrify it nonetheless.

DF11G is Diesel-operated anyway so electrification is not necessary just yet...

but as i said, this is just a hunch...
