DOF expects deal with San Miguel on MRT-7 finalized by yearend

By Iris C. Gonzales, The Philippine Star
Posted at 10/16/2012 8:03 AM | Updated as of 10/16/2012 11:33 AM


MANILA, Philippines - The Department of Finance (DOF) may finalize by yearend an improved concession agreement with San Miguel Holdings Corp. to operate Metro Rail Transit Line 7 (MRT-7), a ranking official said yesterday.

The department is also targeting to issue its performance undertaking and secure the approval of the National Economic and Development Authority-Investment Coordination Committee (NEDA-ICC) for the project, Finance Undersecretary John Philip Sevilla told The STAR in an interview.

“I would like us to do it by the end of the year (the NEDA approval and the performance undertaking). We want the contract to become effective as soon as possible,” he said.

The DOF and San Miguel’s wholly-owned subsidiary SMHC, the proponent for MRT-7, are discussing ways to enhance the existing concession agreement for the much delayed $1.2-billion rail project.

Sevilla said the talks are going well.

“We’ve had pretty good discussions with San Miguel. I think we’re going to get there,” he said.

Discussions with SMHC are centered on ensuring compliance with performance standards stipulated in the agreement and that the government must be able to terminate the contract if the proponent is unable to operate at a certain capacity.

Furthermore, Sevilla said the government wants to ensure that it can slap penalties for non-compliance and termination of extended non-compliance.

He said the government also wants to make sure that there are adequate mechanisms to monitor both passenger and real estate developments of the project to ensure that the government will get its fair share from those developments.

“We insisted that we define performance standards and penalties for not meeting those performance standards. It’s useless to have performance standards if you don’t have carrot and stick,” Sevilla said.

He said that after the talks are sealed, SMHC is expected to submit a detailed project design and commence construction according to an agreed upon schedule.

“Hopefully, construction has started and operations have started by the end of 2016,” Sevilla said.

The MRT-7 project has been delayed because the DOF wants to clarify provisions in the contract before issuing a performance undertaking.

Finance Secretary Cesar Purisima, for his part, has said the DOF could not issue a performance undertaking without knowing the precise amounts which government would have to pay after all the cost adjustments.

The proposed MRT-7 is expected to complement the existing mass transit lines. It will run from San Jose del Monte City, Bulacan to SM City North Edsa, linking up with the existing Light Rail Transit Line 1 and MRT 3.

DOTC, PNR to pursue $2.5B railway project
By Miguel R. Camus
Philippine Daily Inquirer
5:03 am | Monday, May 6th, 2013
44 1032 305
MANILA, Philippines—The transportation department is moving forward with a “long-overdue” proposal for a $2.5-billion public private partnership (PPP) project meant to further develop and upgrade Luzon’s railway system, whose largest operator is the state-run Philippine National Railways (PNR).
The PPP Center and the Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) signed last Friday a consulting contract with Canada’s CPCS Transcom Ltd. to prepare the feasibility study for the proposed PNR Integrated Luzon Railway project.
The project has been tagged among the “ambitious” PPP proposals of the government.
The announcement was made by the PPP Center through social networking site Twitter. It said the feasibility study was expected to be completed “by December 2013.” There were few details on the Integrated Luzon Railway itself although the PPP Center website noted that the project aimed to cover the entire “PNR mainline” North and South networks.
This includes the mainline north, from Manila to La Union as well as a branch line from Tarlac to San Jose, Nueva Ecija, and a possible extension to Cagayan, information on the PPP Center’s website showed. The mainline south refers to Manila to Legaspi City, including the branch line from Calamba to Batangas City, the center said.
It is unclear how the new project will provide a clear master plan for Luzon, given that north and south lines have different operators.

Any news regarding the South Rail ?
I can´t find any updates regarding when train operations to Naga (and Legaspi) will start again.
So, what´s the current status ?
It seems that trains are still running until Alabang only (besides a single commuter train to/from Binan) ...
Are there any "repairs" and/or "upgrades" in process behind Alabang right now ?
Or have all activities silently come to a stand still again ?

Sinungaling na sinungaling talaga itong si Mar. Sabi niya wala daw kahit ni isang poste na naitayo para sa Northrail. Eh full blast na ang construction nung 2010.

Anyway, teka munit, ano na ang nangyari sa feasibility study na ginawa para sa pag revive ng railway system sa Luzon

http://business.inquirer.net/120287/...ailway-project

Sabi December daw ang completion ng study. Anyare na?

The Philippines has the worst rail system in sth east asia, except maybe for cambodia. There doesnt appear any political will to change this situation lots of studies, half started projects never completed etc etc over the last decade. All there is a diesel 1950's style one line operating in the whole country of 90 million people. There needs to be some divine intervention........

Malaysia, thailand, indonesia are all forging ahead with massive rejuvenation of their rail systems but it hasnt been picked up at all in the philippines.

Its just as exasperating in Malaysia and even the Thais and Indonesians complain about the speed of their rail development. Its a reality that rail development in SEA is lethargic compared to Europe and China. Even the Middle East, Eastern Europe and some Nothern African Countries like Morocco and Algeria are fast developing ormbalready have high speed trains despite their regions having slower economic growth than ASEAN.

However,I believe ASEAN will be growing steadily in the next decades and infrastructure will naturally improve as its a necessity.

At least malaysia is byilding a brand new double track electrified rail line from north to south. Philippines only has one line and eveytime it rains the line closes as it is so old and the speed limit is between 30 and 60km

Yes, but the double tracking is at a snailpace thanks to a previous PM who delayed it for 5 years, incompetent contractors also delayed the current line to the North, the electric intercity trains barely goes outside the Klang Valley reaching only to small towns in Perak no one goes to, hopefully it will reach Penang mainland by end of the year. The southern line project between Gemas-Johor Bharu is still not awarded yet and train travel on that stretch still takes 6 hours plus on the current single track, a bus ride will take 3 hours. At this stage, rail travel in Peninsular Malaysia is still not meaningful yet and still very slow and limited.

As for the Phiillipines, being an archipalego makes railway development very expensive.Itd be ideal to concentrate on Luzon where there is a huge population. Development of a good transportation network between the isles via air travel and ferries aurwould be more meaningful and cheaper. The problem with railways development is that its damn expensive, even for Malaysia which despite the glam is still a developing country with other priorities.
