Da Man's ultimate pet project getting derailed even before a single rail / ballast can be laid out

DOTr Asec. alleges ‘anomalies’ in Mindanao Railway project bidding
Published May 18, 2018 3:24pm
By MARGARET CLAIRE LAYUG, GMA News



Quote:
An official of the Department of Transportation (DOTr) on Friday claimed there are officials inside the agency who are allegedly trying to manipulate the bidding process for the Mindanao Railway project.

Bidding for the proposed railway is set to begin in June this year. The first phase was priced at approximately P36 billion to be sourced from the General Appropriations Act.

DOTr Assistant Secretary for Railways Mark Tolentino disclosed in a press conference his suspicion that certain “dilawan” officials who outrank him want the supposedly GAA-slated project to be up for grabs to companies.

“Na-feel ko lang na may paghaharang,” Tolentino said.

“Kasi gusto nilang utangin ‘yung buong Mindanao Railway, i-loan, na may budget naman na P36 billion,” he added.
BUT
Quote:
Tolentino did not disclose any names as he was still “looking into” the alleged plot against the project.

The official claimed he had permission from Transportation Secretary Arthur Tugade to hold the press briefing, insisting he was in the position to talk about the railway project.
BUT

Quote:
However, in a message sent to reporters, DOTr communications director Goddess Libiran said Tolentino’s press conference was “unauthorized." —KG, GMA News

by just dropping "dilawan" without naming names.. this is just publicity stunt para tumaas sa pwesto si kuya. sabi nya isusumbong palang nya sa mahal na pangulo??? like whut? media before president?

mas may say naman si tugade kesa sa mas mataas na dilawan yan. edi pigilan. kung matuloy yung sinasabi nya e edi kasuhan. my goodness.

at saka kung may dahilan naman at may back up reasons para umutang e why not? diba china grant nga ang Mindanao railway? nagulat ako na GAA na pala to?

baka naman para makadahilan yan si tugade na iusog ang timeline ng Mindanao railway ha?

Wait lang, anong sabi sa 1:52?! Dual-track, standard gauge and electrified daw. Sure na?! That will be very expensive!

If they say so, why not. Just keep quiet because they might change their mind because you say it is very expensive.

On the other hand this is what the OFFICIAL DOTR Page Says -->>http://dotr.gov.ph/10-press-releases...1-3-hours.html

LOOK: DOTr Undersecretary for Railways Timothy John Batan ensures the public that the 103-kilometer Mindanao Railway Project is definitely on-track.
This railway project, which is expected to be fully operational in 2021, would link the cities of Tagum, Davao and Digos segment to connect major cities and economic zones in the area for faster transportation of people, goods and services.
It is expected to cut travel time from Tagum City to Digos City from 3 and a half hours to just one hour and 20 minutes.
First funded in 1957 with Republic Act No. 2012, studied in 1995, studied in 2001, studied in 2009, and again studied in 2014, it was only under President Duterte's Build Build Build program and with the push by DOTr that the Mindanao Railway was finally approved by the NEDA Board in June 2017. Based on that approval, Phase 1 (Tagum-Davao-Digos) will be completed in 2021, and DOTr is on track with that completion date.
During the design process, which started in the 3rd quarter of 2017, Sec. Tugade gave firm instructions to double track and electrify Phase 1, to be of the same class as the railway projects being developed in Luzon.This was the status of the Mindanao Railway Project even before Asec. Tolentino was appointed as Assistant Secretary supervising Mindanao Rail in December 2017.The DOTr, through the leadership of Secretary Tugade, has already achieved what has not been done in the last six decades -- to go beyond repeated studies, to get investment approval, and to swiftly advance the design process for Phase 1 of the Mindanao Railway

Sec Tugade cannot run a tight ship. He says, she says. Where there is smoke there is fire? Another PR stunt? World class railway? I've had enough of bs and hyperbole -a modern railway system will be good enough. The first phase is rather on the short side, just for future ribbon cutting before PDUTz and he step down just like the "partial" opening of his subway. Ay naku.....they never learned from the Aquino lost years.

With the top DOTr brass publicly disputing ASec. Mark Tolentino's claims, has he been officially relieved of his post?

Meh USec for Railways na, meh ASec pa sa baba...seems Batan and Tolentino are not BFFs.

Seems to be both Batan and Tolentino cannot be trusted. No wonder our railways continue to be screwed up. Case in point: totally delayed Dalian trains for so many reasons

si tolentino, ayaw sumunod sa protocol ng DOTr.....macho at ma-ere....sinabihan na siya na magpaalam muna sa communications head ng dotr, pero ayaw, matigas ulo, eh sa magaling daw siya at malaka s daw siya kay PRRD.....so gumawa siya ng sarili niyang Presscon....at nagulat yung mga taga media na nasa presscon kung bakit biglang ang Mindanao Railway ang topic niya eh di naman siya kasali dun. kung narinig ninyo din yung usapan nina tolentino at tunying ( sa radio show ni ka tunying) malalaman mo talaga na do sumunod sa protocol ang tolentino.....ka tunying was talking to him and when ka tunying proposed that they call the communications head of DOTr for clarifications, ayun biglang ang sabi ni tolentino "ay nagmamadali ako at may meeting pa ako.." mabubuking na siya kasi........bakit Mindanao Railway ang gusto niyang pagusapan? malaman dahil gusto niyang siya ang humawak nito, sa bidding process......gusto sigurong magka-pera.....pang pondo niya sa political dreams niya.....natalo na nga siya sa probinsya nila, di pa rin natuto..

Also, kung meron ngang anomalya dun, hindi ba pwede na dumiretso sya kay Batan o kay Sec. Tugade? Nagpapogi pa kasi sa media eh, ayan tuloy
